Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

These are a part of Me.

"This is how all life should be accepted, in desireless wonder, reaching out for nothing and thrusting nothing away, rejoicing in the different essence of each moment as it blazes into the present from the folded future. But she was under no illusions; for a life of such moments one needed a heart without roots, a spirit free in the wind, and empty hands.  Once she had them she would never know them again. She had committed too much to earth."

From Mooncrow by Jack Massa
"Motion is all that exists.  Motion bound in a pattern is matter.  Motion flowing through a recurring pattern is life.  A life entity is a recurring pattern; it functions to bring motion into the world..."
