I don't excercise. If God had wanted me to bend over, he would have put diamonds on the floor.
I have no use for people who throw their weight around as celebrities, or for those who fawn over you just because you are famous.
Nothing can be more hurtful to the service, than the neglect of discipline; for that discipline, more than numbers, gives one army the superiority over another.
I always tell my kids if you lay down, people will step over you. But if you keep scrambling, if you keep going, someone will always, always give you a hand. Always. But you gotta keep dancing, you gotta keep your feet moving.
A mistress never is nor can be a friend. While you agree, you are lovers; and when it is over, anything but friends.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.

C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
