    “To dream the impossible dream to fight the unbeatable foe to bear with unbearable sorrow to run where the brave dare not go; to right the unrightable wrong to love pure and chaste from afar to try when your arms are too weary to reach the unreachable star. This is my quest to follow that […]

    Remembering Selma 1965-2015 “How I got over, how I got over, my soul looks back and wonders how I got over” One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works. And men shall speak of ...

    “Now if you’ve ever been down to New Orleans then you can understand just what I mean. All through the week, it’s quiet as a mouse, but on Saturday night they go from house to house. You don’t have to pay the usual admission if you’re a cook, waiter or a good musician so ...

    “If it’s magic, then why can’t it be everlasting, like the sun that always shines, like the poets in this rhyme, like the galaxies in time. If it’s pleasing then why can’t it be never leaving, like the day that never fails, like on seashores there are shells, like the ...

    “Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.” Haile Selassie “Every woman is a queen, and we all have ...

    “Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let ...

    “I’ve had some good days I’ve had some hills to climb I’ve had some weary days and some sleepless nights. But when I look around and I think things over all of my good days outweigh my bad days I won’t complain. Sometimes the clouds are low I can hardly see the road I ...

    “The man, who wants a garden fair, or small or very big, with flowers growing here and there, must bend his back and dig. The things are mighty few on the earth that wishes can attain. Whatever we want of any worth, we’ve got to work to gain. It matters not what goal you seek […]

    “I love you because the earth turns round the sun; because the north wind blows north sometimes. I love you because the Pope is Catholic and most Rabbis Jewish; because winters flow into spring and the air clears after a storm; because only my love for you despite the charms of gravity keeps me ...

    “Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling  safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a ...

    Men and women in my lifetime have died fighting for the right to vote; people like James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, who were murdered while registering Black voters in Mississippi in 1964, and Viola Liuzzo, who was murdered by the Ku Klux Klan in 1965 during the Selma march ...

    “A fire-mist and a planet, a crystal and a cell, a jelly-fish and a saurian, and caves where the cave-men dwell; then a sense of law and beauty and a face turned from the clod, some call it evolution, and others call it God. A haze on the far horizon, the infinite, tender sky, the […]
