Everyone should play their role in tearing down the wall of hatred.
Lalu Prasad Yadav

I think the most successful are the most paranoid. The first thing people do when they buy a mansion is they build the biggest wall you could possibly build around it. What happens is, now you become a target. If I go into the hood, I'm at a disadvantage. They could carry guns. I can't. They can hit me in the face. I can't.
After the Berlin Wall came down and Communism was on the run, I looked around and wondered what the next threat to the United States would be.
Art is the provocation for talking about enigma and the search for sense in human life. One can do that by telling a story or writing about a fresco by Giotto or studying how a snail climbs up a wall.
Country music busts the wall between performer and audience. There's a connection because there's a vulnerability, a confessional quality, to so much of the songwriting. Those lyrics take you in.

From when I was a really small girl on, I would pick every fabric, every color on the walls, and I was always redecorating. Like once every couple of months I would redecorate my room. I had a full wall that was all collage - the entire wall - when I was in junior high. And then it would kind of morph with me as I was growing.

Abdul Qadeer Khan
The Occupy Wall Street project feels like a burning ember that might light the torch of justice and inflame our longing for freedom.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
