Quote(s) of the Day

"I got a letter a while back from a sappy woman. She wrote me because she knew I was sappy too. She wanted help - if it was a terrible mistake bringing a baby into a world as awful as this one. I told her what made being alive almost worthwhile for me was meeting saints who were everywhere. By saints I mean ordinary people behaving decently in an indecent society. I hope all of you are or will become saints." (Kurt Vonnegut)

"You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom." (Malcolm X)

Thank you for the good quotes. I am often in despair when I think about "the state of affairs" in our world. These made me feel better!
