Wise Words for Today from Martin Luther King, Jr

To honor the January 15 birthday of an American son, visionary leader Martin Luther King Jr., a few quotes from him, courtesy of Brainy Quotes....

"The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in time of moral confict."

"The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving our peaceful tomorrows."

"Faith is taking the first step when you don't see the whole staircase."

"Have we not come to such an impasse in the modern world that we must love our enemies---our else? The chain reaction of evil---hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars---must be broken or else we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation."

"We will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."

"Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend."

"Peace is not merely a distant goal we see, but a means by which we arrive at that goal."

Amen, Dr. King.
