P.S. Monday of this week is a holiday in honor of a man who never became President, never held a political office, never was rich -- but changed America forever. This holiday Wiggins Weekly issue celebrates the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr. On this page are some quotes from him that reveal a little about why he was so important.

Pony Pal Thoughts for the Day ~ from Martin Luther King, Jr. 1929-1968

It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can keep him from lynching me, and I think that's pretty important.


Life's most urgent question is: what are you doing for others? The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and sisterhood.


Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.


Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. The ultimate measure of a woman is not where she stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where she stands at times of challenge and controversy.
