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.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

These Are A Part of Me

Never attempt to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and annoys the pig.

If you would lift me up you must be on higher ground. 

He who is sure of himself is deeply willing to let others be themselves.

We enjoy thoroughly only the pleasure that we give.

Children have neither a past nor a future. Thus they enjoy the present.

The lion is not so fierce as he is painted.

Animals are such agreeable friends - They ask no questions, they  pass no criticisms.      George Eliot

Do you think you are a mistake just because you  made one?
