Certaines personnes portent ressemblance surprenante avec de belles fleurs de lotus qui poussent dans la boue et pourtant élever au-dessus des eaux plus sombres que étonnamment belles fleurs. La boue des adversités, les défis et les obstacles ne cesse de leur croissance, mais offre la nourriture et la force à monter au-dessus de la saleté. Je pense souvent que ce doit être le fort désir, de la ténacité et de la persévérance de la fleur de lotus qui la rend si unique en élevant au-dessus et au-delà des limites normales. Ne l'oublions pas, pas tout ce qui pousse dans la boue se transforme en une élégante fleur de lotus. à mon avis, nous devons nous efforcer de développer le même mental force, de persévérance et de passion au sein - de manière à croître au-delà de la boue des circonstances impérieuses, la haine, les difficultés, les rejets et les discriminations sociales, que nous rencontrons souvent dans le monde réel. Alors seulement nous serons en mesure de se transformer en fleurs de lotus éloquents, ouvrant doucement nos pétales douces et souples, un par un, pour rendre notre monde plus beau.

Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be carefully used and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of the citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government and one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.
– Hubert HumphreyRate it:

Ceux qui ne peuvent pas entendre la musique toujours rire avec mépris les étoiles de la danse, de penser les danseurs doivent être fou. Vous devez ignorer leur rire moqueur, enlevez vos chaussures, et continuer à danser comme il n'y a personne à regarder. Vous êtes la reine de la danse, et le dernier mot sera toujours la vôtre! Continuateur danse, étoile danser!
