Racism is when you have laws set up, systematically put in a way to keep people from advancing, to stop the advancement of a people. Black people have never had the power to enforce racism, and so this is something that white America is going to have to work out themselves. If they decide they want to stop it, curtail it, or to do the right thing ... then it will be done, but not until then.
The destiny of any nation at any given time depends on the opinion of its young people, those under twenty-five.
The great secret that all old people share is that you really haven't changed in seventy or eighty years. Your body changes, but you don't change at all. And that, of course, causes great confusion.
I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

It's a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money.
There are people who have money and people who are rich.
Loneliness is the universal problem of rich people.
From the backstabbing co-worker to the meddling sister-in-law, you are in charge of how you react to the people and events in your life. You can either give negativity power over your life or you can choose happiness instead. Take control and choose to focus on what is important in your life. Those who cannot live fully often become destroyers of life.
I don't believe an accident of birth makes people sisters or brothers. It makes them siblings, gives them mutuality of parentage. Sisterhood and brotherhood is a condition people have to work at.
Siblings are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation and kindness and caring - quite often the hard way.
How do people make it through life without a sister?
All people smile in the same language.
People seldom notice old clothes if you wear a big smile.
