Monday, MLK Day and Inauguration Day

21 Jan

MLK

 

Some Martin Luther King, Jr quotes for today:

“Faith is taking that first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.” 

I have decided to stick to love… hate is too great a burden to bear.” 

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”

“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.”

 

Also, Happy Inauguration Day!

    MLK, Jr. is so immensely quotable, isn’t he? 🙂 I especially like that last one. We can get so wrapped up in the pursuit of happiness that we forget to BE happy. Enjoy your day! 🙂

      For real, Jessie! It was hard to choose just a few quotes, but I held myself back from posting 10 or 15 of them. I loved that last one too and feel it could inspire a whole blog post. Seems relevant to what many of us are writing about. Hope you enjoy your day too.
