It’s Not the Load that Breaks You

“It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it. Carry it by the comfortable handles of gratitude for what’s positive and that it’s not worse, rather than the uncomfortable edges of bitterness and that it is not better.”
~ Lena Horne,
Singer, Dancer, Actress & Civil Rights Activist.

Once They’ve Got You Violent, Then …

“When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you – ‘pull your beard’, ‘flick your face’ – to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humour.”
~ John Winston Lennon,
Musician, Singer, Songwriter,
Record Producer, Artist, Writer & Activist
