If you can recall, I used to do a monthly segment on the 15th of every month of little quotes that I read that stuck with me, I thought I’d post a new one this month. Here are a few that caught my eye…

“My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.” ~ Anais Nin

“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Noise proves nothing. Often a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she laid an asteroid.” ~ Mark Twain

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“One option is to struggle to be heard whenever you’re in the room… Another is to be the sort of person who is missed when you’re not. The first involves making noise. The second involves making a difference.” ~ Godin

“Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe

“Ability is a wonderful thing, but its value is greatly enhanced by dependability. Ability implies repeatability and accountability. ” ~ Robert A. Heinlein

“Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue. ~ Anonymous
