“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
-Howard Thurman, theologian, educator, and civil rights activist
"Modern man has brought this whole world to an awe-inspiring threshold of the future...Yet, in spite of these spectacular strides in science and technology, and still unlimited ones to come, something basic is missing. There is a sort of poverty of the spirit which stands in glaring contrast to our scientific and technological abundance. The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually. We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers."
-Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., from his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech in 1964
