Episode #15: Never Lose Infinite Hope
Our goal each week with the Advocate is to truly encourage you. We want to be more than a marketing email that lands in your inbox. We want to uplift and help set our sights on what could be. We then give a free drink so we can talk about it. 🙂
On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, our job is easy.
Twoscore and 15 years after his historic “I Have a Dream” speech, Martin Luther King Jr.‘s stirring words and writings remain as relevant and inspiring as they were when he lived. To honor King’s lasting legacy, this week’s Encourage is simply seven of his most poignant quotes. All of them are worth repeating and contemplating on this holiday where we remember the self-evident truth that all are created equal and are endowed with certain unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. May we never lose infinite hope for this reality.
- “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
- “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
- “Forgiveness is not an occasional act. It is a permanent attitude.”
- “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
- “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
- “Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle.”
- “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.”
