-Martin Luther King

"Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and frightened. Don't open the door to the study and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument

Let the beauty we love be what we do
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground."

"To know is to comprehend. Do you know, do you comprehend, in this moment, who or what you serve? We all must be serving someone or something. Whom or what are you choosing to serve right now?
It takes courage to ask this of yourself. But without courage, you can't practice any other value consistently."
