Never be afraid to do what is right — Martin Luther King Jr.




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. – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Gratitude and thanksgiving




Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.

— Henry van Dyke
