QUOTES from the Sandbox ~ Monday, Jan., 20, 2020

Hi Everyone!   January 20, 2020:   Martin Luther King Jr. Day ~
Bringing some of his quotes and sayings to the Sandbox as a way of honoring
this great man.  Assassinated on April 4, 1968.  He was 39 years old.
                                                            ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
  Hate cannot drive out hate;  only love can do that."

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where
they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their
character."

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, "What are you doing for others?'"

"I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former
slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the
table of brotherhood."

"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think
critically.  Intelligence plus character -- that is the goal of true education."

"Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward
the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle;  the tireless
exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals."

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."

"We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools."

"Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend."

"We may have all come on different ships but we're in the same boat now."

"The time is always right to do what is right."

"Well, I don't know what will happen now.  We've got some difficult days
ahead.  But it doesn't matter with me now.  Because I've been to the
mountaintop.  And I don't mind.  Like anybody, I would like to live a long
life. Longevity has its place.  But I'm not concerned about that now.  I just
want to do God's will.  And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain.  And
I've looked over.  And I've see the promised land.  I may not get there with
you.  But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the
promised land.  And I'm happy, tonight.  I'm not worried about anything.
I'm not fearing any man.  Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of
the Lord."
                          (Martin Luther King Jr. speaking at Mason Temple,
                           Memphis, TN on April 3, 1968 -  the night before he was
                           assassinated.)

Hi,  Will Hamm!  Are you having a nice day?  Maybe mine would be a little happier today if the PACKERS had won Sunday.  Yeah, I know:  Get over it!!  I am so trying to lose a few pounds for a big and fancy family wedding in April.  Right now I am hungry and of course, knowing the chef you are, my mind went to food.  Guess I better go in the kitchen and 'UltraBullet' me a protein shake.  I would rather have one of your meals, though.

King's passing helped pass the 1968 Fair Housing Act. He's helped our industry in ways we can only begin to imagine. A great American!

Hi Jane,  Such an insightful man.  Thanks for sharing some of his quotes.  They are all so good.  "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, "What are you doing for others?"  

A great question to ponder.

Morning Jane.

September 17th, 1987 I saw the light. It was and is the most peaceful experience I've ever had.

Good morning Jane. Must say that the following quote is a daily reminder:

"The time is always right to do what is right.
