I love reading and I love affirmations and inspiring quotes. These are a few of my favs.
Charity is no substitute for justice. If we never challenge a social order that allows some to accumulate wealth–even if they decide to help the less fortunate–while others are short-changed, then even acts of kindness end up supporting unjust arrangements. We must never ignore the injustices that make charity necessary, or the inequalities that make it possible. ”Michael Eric Dyson, Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster
If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.Audre Lorde
There is no passion to be found playing small in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”Nelson mandela
