Mighty of purpose and stalwart of limb, Clove they a path through the forest so dim, Forward, adventuring, knowing no fears, Honour and praise to the old pioneers.

It is not so much for its beauty 
that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, 
as for that subtle something, 
that quality of air that emanation from old trees, 
that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. 
~ Robert Louis Stevenson ~

You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.

Malcolm X, Malcolm X Speaks, 1965

That man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.
Robert Louis Stevenson

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
