— Marilyn Monroe

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."

Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase.

The time is always right to do what is right.
Martin Luther King

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.
Martin Luther King
