Faith: My most favorite quote

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

“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

“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.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”

“the time is always right to do the right thing”

These are just s0me of his quotes. He used Love as his weapon. And guess what? He fixed a broken society with Love.

One of my most favorite quotes from him:

"Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom, by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred" - MLK

God bless all of you (even if you don't believe in him) and have a marvelous MLK day. This is an example of someone who shifted a society, even more then John Lennon, and this society shifter was a Christian.
