To Be Judged By The Content of Their Character...

Ok,

  So I love inspirational sayings, mottos, pictures and anything similar and as I was flipping channels just now, I saw Dr. Martin Luther King giving his "I have a dream speech".  Man, talk about inspirational.  He said that he had hoped that his children would live in a nation which would not judge them by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.  I would love to hear from people what they thought of that speech when it was actually given.  I understand that it was given at a different time in history, so maybe it didn't carry the power that I imagine it to have carried, but still.

  I was born in 1973 and my earliest memory of anything is Star Wars, PacMan and MTV(!) (and, of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator).  Anyways (as I ramble), my favorite saying of all time was also said by Dr. King and in the real estate world over the last few years, it has helped me a ton -- he said, "The pessimist sees the difficulty within the opportunity and the optimist sees the opportunity within the difficulty".  Actually, Winston Churchill said it, Dr. King repeated it and I read it in one of Dr. King's speeches first (so, sorry Mr. Churchill).  I suppose for all of the Winston Churchill enthusiasts out there, I'm gonna' get de-friended on facebook now.

  In regards to daily inspiration, the coolest thing that I found was the simpletruths website.  It has all of these videos with these inspirational sayings (and no, I'm not trying to sell something, I'm just typing (because I'm on a roll)).  If anyone out there gets a chance, you have got to watch this video on Simpletruths  entitled, "Famous quotes from famous women".  It's crazy.  Everytime I watch it, I wanna' get up and run through a brick wall, lol.
