Martin Luther King, Jr.

A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.
We must exchange the philosophy of excuse - what I am is beyond my control - for the philosophy of responsibility.
Barbara Charline Jordan
I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom.

My responsibility to myself, my neighbors, my family and the human family is to try to tell the truth.
Toni Cade Bambara
Words have special powers. The power to create smiles or frowns. The power to generate laughs or tears. The power to lift up or put down. The power to motivate or de-motivate. The power to teach good or evil. The power to express love or hate. The power to give or take. The power to heal or harm. Choose your words carefully.
