I have spent most of my adult life proving that I existed. A blog is an accessible way of doing this - there is a date and place in cyberspace that I existed a year ago, to the day, and the proof is still there.
Stone Mountain, Georgia, still had Ku Klux Klan marches, and I had a wild and courageous mother who'd put us in the car to watch them. She wanted us to know those things existed.
My parents were mourning the death of my sister. She was killed in a car accident before I was born, and I didn't know she existed until I was 13 or 14 years old. I knew I was growing up in a house where people were angry and sad.
There are certain things that we take for granted that simply would not have existed without the great migration. Motown, for example, would not have existed - it simply would not, because Berry Gordy, the founder of it, his parents had migrated from Georgia to Detroit where he founded Motown, and where did he get his talent?
In our family, there wasn't anything else besides art. Nothing else in the world existed. My father never spoke about going to a movie or listening to music, other than my mother's singing.
There is nothing like Ruth ever existed in this game of baseball. I remember we were playing the White Sox in Boston in 1919, and he hit a home run off Lefty Williams over the left-field fence in the ninth inning and won the game. It was majestic. It soared.
If the Soviet empire still existed, I'd be terrified. The fact is, we can afford a fairly ignorant presidency now.
No poet or orator has ever existed who believed there was any better than himself.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
I never could get on with representative individuals but people who existed on their own account and with whom it might therefore be possible to be friends.
E. M. Forster
There hasn't been anybody else write a Constitution like Madison. There just hasn't been, because that person hasn't existed anywhere but here.
The advertising world had space men in it before spacemen existed.
To die is one thing. How much worse to know that all the life that ever existed on this planet, and all it ever achieved, was to be obliterated?
Before recording technology existed, you could not separate music from its social context.
Films don't hold the answers I'm looking for... Would you not be so much more interested in finding out that Bigfoot existed than in watching a really good movie?
I didn't even know 'Vogue' existed when I was growing up.
My career is like an artichoke. People might think that the leaves are tasty and buttered up and delicious, and they don't even know that there's something magical hidden at the base of it. There's a whole other side of me that people didn't know existed.
Humans have existed only for the last 0.001 percent of cosmic time. All of which says that - unless the Homo sapiens brain is the one-and-only instance of cogitating machinery - nearly all the intelligence that's out there is beyond our level. And that intelligence is more than just a little bit beyond.
I think that we're living in a time where there are trillion-dollar opportunities that never existed before.
The genius of a folk melody or story is not the feeling that it's original but quite the opposite - the feeling that it has existed all along.
'Frankenstein' did not invent the fear of science; the novel found its audience because it dramatized anxieties that already existed. Although popular entertainment can, over the long run, shape public perceptions, it becomes popular in the first place only if it addresses preexisting hopes, fears, and fascinations.
Cancer has shown me what family is. It showed me a love that I never knew really existed.
Why can't the world be like a summer day, when I thought that health care would be an ethical decision and wars existed only to be stopped?
Madeleine M. Kunin
I think once you have children, you just don't have the same kind of freedom to pick up and go. But then, I sort of think, how often did I really do it? How spontaneous was I really? Part of what I think I miss is this fantasy of my wild days, but they never existed!
Mariah's fashion game is definitely on a different level than mine. She actually knows Roberto Cavalli and Dolce & Gabbana. I didn't know those people actually existed; I thought they were just names.
I don't defend the idea of universal love. It has never existed and will never exist.
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.

We are most alive when we're in love.
