My Birthday Tribute: Poe
“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
~Edgar Allan Poe
EDGAR ALLAN POE
Today is my birthday, and I am honored to share it with Edgar Allan Poe, born January 19th 1809. Poe was a brilliant writer, and I love his work. I admire the deep sentiment within his work, which draws you in. His style is not for everyone, it’s sometime long and daunting, but there is beauty laced within the lines that you must keep reading to find.
Quotes by Poe:
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Hauntingly. Mysterious. Beautiful.What are your thoughts on Poe?
You can’t spell Poet without Poe 😉
Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute
“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.”
In honor of his birthday January 15th and the celebration of MLK day:
The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Via Goodreads: King scholar Clayborne Carson has constructed a remarkable first-person account of Dr. King’s extraordinary life. Beginning with his boyhood, the book portrays King’s education as a minister, his ascendancy as a leader of the Montgomery bus boycott, his pivotal role in the civil rights demonstrations in Washington, D.C.
Rated: 4.6 on amazon.com
This is a great book if you want a deeper level of understanding of Dr. King’s spirit, and his intentions in the Civil Rights Movement.
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
There are just not enough hours in the day
to sustain my appetite for books.
