Powerful Words

One of the many odd things I like to do is meander through websites of quotes. Famous, obscure, inspirational, darkly cynical or downright odd....I like reading them all. Every now and then I come across one that totally captures my attention and makes me take a second and third read. This is what caught my eye - and mind - today. Has there been any quote, scripture or even a recent event that's caught your eye/mind and caused you to stop and think?

"Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men." ~Martin Luther King Jr.

There is a verse in 1st Corinthinans that stops and makes me think every time. Of course I don't have my Bible here to quote it, but it is something like ... "we are hard pressed on every side but not crushed, persecuted, but not abandoned..."

I love the thoughts behind it and how much it makes me think.

I'm going to try to think of some more. Really liked the quote you put up.
