Some quotes that I collected yesterday in my walk along the lobby.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Martin Luther King’s quotes
“Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.”
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Others I knew before
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” – MLK
If I can’t dance – I don’t want to be part of your revolution? -Emma Goldman
