A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on america, birth, brothers, christ, daughters, freedom, heart, hope, inspiration, loyalty, sons, spirit, and work

America experiences a new birth of freedom in her sons and daughters; she incarnates the spirit of her martyred chief. Their loyalty is repledged; their devotion renewed to the work He left unfinished. My heart throbs anew in the hope that inspired by the example of Lincoln, imbued with the spirit of Christ, they will cast down the last barrier to perfect freedom. And I with my brother of blackest hue possessing at last my rightful heritage and holding my head erect, may stand beside the Saxon - a Negro - and yet a man!

A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on fatherhood, good, sons, and virtue

The ties of virtue ought to be closer than the ties of blood, since the good man is closer to another good man by their similarity of morals than the son is to his father by their similarity of face.

Magdeleine Sable (c. 1599 - 1678)

O son, thou hast not true humility, The highest virtue, mother of them all; But her thou hast not know; for what is this? Thou thoughtest of thy prowess and thy sins Thou hast not lost thyself to save thyself.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on college, excellence, experience, home, life, men, preparation, sons, and time

My sons served excellent missions, and . . . returned to participate in college athletics. . . . In their letters home, and even now that they have been back for some time, they frequently mention that the experiences in the mission field were the choicest and most gratifying of their lives. You young [men], begin to prepare yourselves now for this marvelous experience.
