Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life.
Ludwig van Beethoven
The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.
Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land.
The hardest years in life are those between ten and seventy.
If a man can bridge the gap between life and death, if he can live on after he's dead, then maybe he was a great man.
Mankind is divided into rich and poor, into property owners and exploited; and to abstract oneself from this fundamental division; and from the antagonism between poor and rich means abstracting oneself from fundamental facts.

The distance between number one and number two is always a constant. If you want to improve the organization, you have to improve yourself and the organization gets pulled up with you.

I like to see myself as a bridge builder, that is me building bridges between people, between races, between cultures, between politics, trying to find common ground.
