Thirteen Power Quotes By Dr. King

 

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed - we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.”

“If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.”

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

"Let no man pull you low enough to hate him."

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness:  only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."

"There comes a time when silence is betrayal."

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven played 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.”

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

“The old law about "an eye for an eye" leaves everybody blind.”

“Most of these people will never make the headlines and their names will not appear in Who's Who. Yet when years have rolled past and when the blazing light of truth is focused on this marvelous age in which we live -- men and women will know and children will be taught that we have a finer land, a better people, a more noble civilization -- because these humble children of God were willing to suffer for righteousness' sake.”

“Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.”

“In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

Are you facing any giants today?

How do your giant(s) compare with Goliath?

1 Samuel 17:4 says:

“And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.”

Based on the King James Version of the Bible six cubits and a span would make Goliath over nine feet tall. However, if you believe the Jewish historian Josephus was four cubits and a span or roughly six feet six inches tall.

When you consider the average height of a man in Biblical times was five feet three inches. . . Goliath was a real giant, regardless.

1 Samuel 17:5 says:

“And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass.”

 According to my historical research Goliath’s helmet weighed roughly 66 pounds and his brass coat weighed roughly 175 pounds.   Can you imagine your 6’6” neighbor carrying a 175- pound backpack and wearing a 66-pound Yankees hat?
