Before a child talks they sing. Before they write they draw. As soon as they stand they dance. Art is fundamental to human expression.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
—Martin Luther King Jr.
In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
