Quote of the Day

For too long we have swept the problems of mental illness under the carpet... and hoped that they would go away.
Richard J. Codey
History shows that there is no more potent engine for reform than the passion of voters who feel betrayed by the politicians they hoped would do the right thing.
Faith is the substance of hope - of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.

I never expected any sort of success with 'Mockingbird'... I sort of hoped someone would like it enough to give me encouragement.
When I started acting, I hoped I could make some kind of positive contribution to this world.

That's pretty awesome, right?

The names of Dingane and Bambata, Hintsa and Makana, Squngthi and Dalasile, Moshoeshoe and Sekhukhuni, were praised as the glory of the entire African nation. I hoped then that life might offer me the opportunity to serve my people and make my own humble contribution to their freedom struggle.
