Use me, God. Show me how to take who I am,
who I want to be, and what I can do,
and use it for a purpose greater than myself.

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was:
"If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?"
But...the good Samaritan reversed the question:
"If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?"

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

I cannot do great things,
I can do small things in a great way.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
Only Light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
Only Love can do that.

I have decided to stick to Love...
Hate is too great a burden to bear.

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

Forgiveness is not an occasional act,
it is a constant attitude.

Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the
well-being of a person or animal is at stake.
Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds
we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.

Hatred paralyszes life; Love releases it.
Hatred confuses life; Love harmonizes it.
Hatred darkens life; Love illuminates it.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted,
every hill and mountain shall be made low,
the rough places will be made straight,
and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together.

- Martin Luther King, Jr. -
