the supremacy of human rights everywhere.
Our support goes to those who struggle
to gain those rights or keep them.
Our strength is our unity of purpose.
To that high concept
there can be no end save victory.”

“Believe in yourself!
If cauliflower can become pizza,
you can do anything.”
“Never put the key to your happiness
in somebody else’s pocket.”
“Optimism is a strategy
for making a better future.
Because unless you believe
that the future can be better
you are unlikely to step up
and take responsibility for making it so.
If you assume there is no hope,
you guarantee there will be no hope.
If you assume there is an instinct for freedom,
there are opportunities to change things,
there’s a chance you may
contribute to making a better world.
The choice is yours.”
~ Noam Chomsky
American linguist and political activist
“A strong woman understands that the gifts
such as logic, decisiveness, and strength
are just as feminine as intuition and emotional connection.
She values and uses all of her gifts.”
~ Nancy Rathburn
“Is fat really the worst thing
a human being can be?
Is fat worse than
vindictive, jealous, shallow,
vain, boring, evil, or cruel?
Not to me.”
~ J.K. Rowling
“As I hurtled through space,
one thought kept crossing my mind –
every part of this rocket
was supplied by the lowest bidder.”
