No one should negotiate their dreams. Dreams must be free to flee and fly high. No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams. You should never agree to surrender your dreams.
Rev. Jesse Jackson
The future depends on what we do in the present.
Inspiration and genius–one and the same.
Nothing is predestined: The obstacles of your past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings.
There are some defeats more triumphant than victories.
The world has no room for cowards. We must all be ready somehow to toil, to suffer, to die. And yours is not the less noble because no drum beats before you when you go out into your daily battlefields, and no crowds shout about your coming when you return from your daily victory or defeat.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat…We must find each other.
It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men live in a city without walls.
Healthy children will not fear life if their elders have integrity enough not to fear death.
Erik H. Erikson
There are so many little dyings that it doesn’t matter which of them is death.
