February is Black History month, so as we approach its final day, some quotes from civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. are in order. There were fitting when said; they are more fitting in 2019.
Our thanks to Professor Ron Adkins for contributing these life lessons.
•The time is always right to do what is right.
•Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
•Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?”
•Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.
•Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
•Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
•Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.
•Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
•The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict.
•The quality, not the length, of one’s life is what is important.
•We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.
•We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
•A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan.
