There's night and day, brother, both sweet things; sun, moon, and stars, brother, all sweet things; there's likewise a wind on the heath. Life is very sweet, brother; who would wish to die?

Quotes of the day from previous years:
There ain't no such thing as a free lunch. ~ American proverb
I've known rivers:
I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the
flow of human blood in human veins.
My soul has grown deep like the rivers.

~ Langston Hughes ~ (born 1 February 1902)
I tire so of hearing people say,
Let things take their course.
Tomorrow is another day.

I do not need my freedom when I’m dead.
I cannot live on tomorrow’s bread.
~ Langston Hughes ~
Reason is the life of the law; nay, the common law itself is nothing else but reason. ~ Edward Coke


When you turn the corner
And you run into yourself
Then you know that you have turned
All the corners that are left.
~ Langston Hughes (born February 1, 1902)

The law is the surest sanctuary, that a man should take, and the strongest fortresse to protect the weakest of all. ~ Edward Coke (born February 1, 1552)

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?

~ Langston Hughes ~

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
