Words of Wisdom for 2013…

 
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
 
When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.
 
I submit to you that if a man hasn’t discovered something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.
 
Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
 
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
 
Cowardice asks the question – is it safe?
Expediency asks the question – is it politic?
Vanity asks the question – is it popular?
But conscience asks the question – is it right?
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right.
 
Courage is the power of the mind to overcome fear.
 
Life’s most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?
 
It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can stop him from lynching me, and I think that’s pretty important.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
