Who and What is the Happy Warrior

Martin Luther King, Jr. Tribute 4 & 5
"A civilization can founder as readily in the face of moral and spiritual bankruptcy as it can through financial bankruptcy."
-Where do we go From Here, pp. 186
Wow, what would be the peril for a society that is dangerously bereft of moral, spiritual and financial stability?... And the bonus quote is a beautifully expressed truth (one of my favorites):
"No work is insignificant. If a man is called a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.'"
-Wisdom of MLK, Jr., pp. 2
