I always have this image of a woman running across a desert carrying children, trying to find water and food, not knowing when they'll get that.

If there is a spot where you have dictatorship, where people are not free, people are not satisfied, they do not find food and shelter, they are under the poverty level, this is a dangerous spot for the whole world, because those people will move, and they will move to different places.

If you are carrying strong feelings about something that happened in your past, they may hinder your ability to live in the present.
I have a hat. It is graceful and feminine and give me a certain dignity, as if I were attending a state funeral or something. Someday I may get up enough courage to wear it, instead of carrying it.
