Malcolm X
“You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.”
Malcolm X, By Any Means Necessary (Malcolm X Speeches and Writings)

Frida Kahlo
“I don't give a shit what the world thinks. I was born a bitch, I was born a painter, I was born fucked. But I was happy in my way. You did not understand what I am. I am love. I am pleasure, I am essence, I am an idiot, I am an alcoholic, I am tenacious. I am; simply I am ... You are a shit.”
Frida Kahlo

Rainer Maria Rilke
“If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches; for to the creator there is no poverty and no poor indifferent place.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Malcolm X
“The ability to read awoke inside of me some long dormant craving to be mentally alive.”
Malcolm X, The Autobiography of Malcolm X

Rainer Maria Rilke
“The necessary thing is after all but this; solitude, great inner solitude. Going into oneself for hours meeting no one - this one must be able to attain.”
