Inspiration from MLK

I missed my usual Microfiction Monday because I was at the Oregon coast watching the raindrops fall and the rivers rise, and there wasn't any way to get online. But I came home after the long Martin Luther King Jr., Day weekend to find these two MLK quotes on my Page-A-Day Calendar.

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”


“We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope.”

—MARTIN LUTHER KING JR., clergyman and civil rights activist
Onward, ever onward.


  1. I've always liked that first quote. Would you believe Dr. King and I have the same birthday? [The REAL one, Jan. 15th, not the federal holiday].

    Nicely done!

  2. Nice encouragement for writers!
