Saleem Little G.O.D. by Saleem Little
" “G.O.D.” by Saleem Little stretched the boundaries of Urban Fiction. Through the microcosm of inner-city New York, Little shined the spotlight on the ulterior motives of the “War on Drugs”.

In “G.O.D.,” the stands for Gold, Oil and Drugs. The seemi... " Read more of this review »

A writer doesn't dream of riches and fame, though those things are nice. A true writer longs to leave behind a piece of themselves, something that withstands the test of time and is passed down for generations.C.K. Webb

Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there.

It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.
Ray Bradbury

Friedrich Nietzsche
“I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you.”

Maya Angelou
“I don't trust people who don't love themselves and tell me, 'I love you.' ... There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.”

Thomas Merton
“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them”
Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island

“The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.”
