I was kicking it with a Japanese friend of mine today in Yokohama. The convo went a little something like this:

Japanese Friend: I saw a story on TV about Martin Luther King.

Me: Oh yeah?

JF: Yeah. He was such a great man.

Me: True.

JF: He did so much for black people.

Me: For all people.

JF: Ah, Yes, for ALL Black People.

Me: No, not all black people…well, yeah, all black people, but white people,...

“You can trust a few some of the time, and most none of the time. Feel lucky if you have even one to trust all of the time.”

Zora Neale Hurston
“I have known the joy and pain of friendship. I have served and been served. I have made some good enemies for which I am not a bit sorry. I have loved unselfishly, and I have fondled hatred with the red-hot tongs of Hell. That's living.”
Zora Neale Hurston

“I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy.”

“Half Gods are worshipped with wine and Flowers. Real Gods require Blood.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Grant Morrison
“We are the hands and eyes and ears, the sensitive probing feelers through which the emergent, intelligent universe comes to know its own form and purpose. We bring the thunderbolt of meaning and significance to unconscious matter, blank paper, the night sky. We are already divine magicians, already supergods. Why shouldn't we use all our brilliance to leap in as many single bounds as it takes to a world beyond ours, threatened by overpopulation, mass species extinction, environmental degradation, hunger, and exploitation? Superman and his pals would figure a way out of any stupid cul-de-sac we could find ourselves in - and we made Superman, after all. All it takes is that one magic word.”
Grant Morrison, Supergods: What Masked Vigilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Smallville Can Teach Us About Being Human
