*It takes a deep commitment to change and an even deeper commitment to grow.
*I am invisible simply because people refuse to see me. Like the body-less heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though I have been surrounded by hard, distorting glass. When they approach me they see only my surroundings, themselves or figments of their imagination, indeed, everything and anything except me.
*Life is to be lived, not controlled, and humanity is to be won by continuing to play in the face of certain defeat.
- Ralph Ellison
Let me look upward into the towering oak and know that it grew great and strong because it grew slowly and well.
Find things beautiful as much as you can...
