Some day, even the experts will figure out, that crime is not caused by rap music...or even my music, but by a power structure of self-absorbed property owners so brain dead and stupid they won't even see that if you're too goddamn greedy to pay taxes for schools and services, they're not going to be any good any more! And that uneducated time bombs are a very poor investment as a future work force. And if you go on teaching people that life is cheap, and leave them to rot in ghettos and jails, they may one day feel justified in coming back to rob and kill you. Duh!Jello Biafra

Beauty endures only for as long as it can be seen; goodness, beautiful today, will remain so tomorrow.Sappho
Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier.Kathleen Norias
He who believes in goodness has the essence of all faith. He is a man "of cheerful yesterdays and confident to-morrows."James Freeman Clarke
