Quote of the Day: “An Individual has not started living fully until they can rise above the narrow confines of individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of humanity.”

An Individual has not started living fully until they can rise above the narrow confines of individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of humanity. Every person must decide at some point, whether they will walk in light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness. This is the judgment: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?”

This quote apparently comes from Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior’s “Conquering Self-Centeredness” Speech given in Montgomery, Alabama, on August 11, 1957.  It was also the quote that the Kwanzaa Guide, relates to the principle of today, which is Nia (Purpose).
