It's time for a recovery and reassessment of North American thinkers. Marshall McLuhan, Leslie Fiedler and Norman O.

Life-transforming ideas have always come to me through books.
The idea of the sacred is quite simply one of the most conservative notions in any culture, because it seeks to turn other ideas - uncertainty, progress, change - into crimes.
It seems almost backwards to me that my music seems the more emotional outlet, and the art stuff seems more about ideas.

Every time you tear a leaf off a calendar, you present a new place for new ideas and progress.
I do think, however, that there's a very diverse point of view in the African-American community. There's a lot of different voices that need to be heard. I don't claim and pretend to know the thoughts and opinions and ideas of all African-Americans.

Ideas control the world.
James A. Garfield
