Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Faith can move Mountains

Matthew 17:20
Inspiration: A Leap of Faith

The Philosopher’s Corner

At times we enter into dark places. But there exists a light, somewhere in the distance. That light is a beacon of hope, a small sample of what will become. That light is a simple word, that inspires one to aspire to ever greater heights.


This weeks quotes are all about faith. Faith in the unknown. Faith in our capacity to overcome even the greatest of life’s difficulties. Dr. King reminds to take that first step towards the unknown. It’s reward may remain unknown, as it did in during Dr. King’s life. However, in taking that step, he changed the course of American if not the world’s history. This ideal is deeply engrained into the ideal Matthew set forth some 2000 years prior, in that a simple belief can overcome even the greatest of life’s challenges.

Only through faith can we develop the determination to overcome the odds to realize those dreams we wish to see. Thank you for reading fellow travelers. I wish you the journey to:

Believe… Achieve… Advance Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams.
