Quote of the Day

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches Don’t like the man, never liked the man.  His colour had nothing to do with that, his actions did.  However, no matter who, some things are right, and as he says this, he is right.

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.” ― Elie Wiesel When we no longer care, then we no longer hate.  That is a relief to our soul, and an intolerable burden on the souls of those who remain hating us.

Every dollar that we carelessly waste means that their life will be so much the more meager. Every dollar that we prudently save means that their life will be so much the more abundant.
