I Could Not Have Said It Better...

Unless man is committed to the belief that all mankind are his brothers, then he labors in vain and hypocritically in the vineyards of equality.

Cynicism is not realistic and tough. It's unrealistic and kind of cowardly because it means you don't have to try.

It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.

If we have the opportunity to be generous with our hearts, ourselves, we have no idea of the depth and breadth of love's reach.

Try to love someone who you want to hate, because they are just like you, somewhere inside, in a way you may never expect, in a way that resounds so deeply within you that you cannot believe it.
Margaret Cho, weblog, 03-11-04

Politics has less to do with where you live than where your heart is.
