When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.
You will be missed, peace be yours.
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
≅ Eleanor Roosevelt
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
As you press on for justice, be sure to move with dignity and discipline, using only the weapon of love. Let no man pull you so low as to hate him. Always avoid violence. If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in your struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos. (1956)

“Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
∼ Langston Hughes
