Quote of the Day
I have these accidents, these mistakes, these self-inflicted wounds, and then I tear my head to shreds about it for days.

The place to improve the world is first in one's own heart and head and hands.

I went to Ethiopia, and it dawned on me that you can tell a starving, malnourished person because they've got a bloated belly and a bald head.
