My Facebook quotes part 2
“… On the other hand, even Martin Luther king, Jr., and Mahatma Gandhi, who certainly didn’t appear angry when they burst upon the world, would never have burst upon the world in the first place if they hadn’t, at one time in their lives, gone through much, much anger and much, much resentment and much, much anguish. Anguish and pain and resentment and rage are very human forces. They can be found in the breasts of most human beings at one time or another. On very rare occasions there comes a Gandhi, and occasionally there comes a Martin Luther King, Jr., and occasionally there comes a guy like Paul Robeson or a guy like Nelson Mandela. When these people come along, their anger, their rage, their resentment, their frustration – these feelings ultimately mature by will of their own discipline into a positive energy that can be used to fuel their positive, healthy excursion in life.” – Sidney Poitier

“And, in the end, it simply isn’t worth / Your while to try and clean your life away. / You can’t. For everything you do or say / Is there forever.
