Ian Hamilton Finlay

Yeah, I did see where the people dissing me were coming from. But, it's like, anything that happened in the past between black and white, I can't really speak on it, because I wasn't there. I don't feel like me being born the color I am makes me any less of a person.
Every man, every woman who has to take up the service of government, must ask themselves two questions: 'Do I love my people in order to serve them better?

I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.
Louisa May Alcott

When you think of it, really there are four fundamental questions of life. You've asked them, I've asked them, every thinking person asks them.
