Editorial King demonstrated faith, love and wisdom

Monday was a holiday in recognition of one of America's greatest heroes, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He demonstrated the finest qualities of leadership and faith while helping our nation advance toward equal justice for all citizens, and he left a wealth of wisdom for our edification. A few of my favorite King quotes are these:

"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step."

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."

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

"We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies."

"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."

"Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal."

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

"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."

"Our lives end the day we become silent about things that matter."

"Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think."
