Quote of the Day
Where words fail, music speaks.
Hans Christian Andersen
We need to recognize that the situation in Ferguson speaks to broader challenges that we still face as a nation.

Some of this is the result of the legacy of racial discrimination in this country.
Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.
A liar will not be believed, even when he speaks the truth.
Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer. Leopards, cobras, monkeys, rivers and trees; they all served as my teachers when I lived as a wanderer in the Himalayan foothills.
Hip-hop is the streets. Hip-hop is a couple of elements that it comes from back in the days... that feel of music with urgency that speaks to you. It speaks to your livelihood and it's not compromised. It's blunt. It's raw, straight off the street - from the beat to the voice to the words.
Silence speaks so much louder than screaming tantrums. Never give anyone an excuse to say that you're crazy.

It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.
God speaks to me not through the thunder and the earthquake, nor through the ocean and the stars, but through the Son of Man, and speaks in a language adapted to my imperfect sight and hearing.
William Lyon Phelps
He who speaks without modesty will find it difficult to make his words good.
The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his action.

When you are having fun and creating something you love, it shows in the product.

Nonfiction speaks to the head. Fiction speaks to the heart. Poetry speaks to the soul. It's the essence of beauty. The essence of pain. It pleases the eye and the ear.
