You are a sovereign soul who is capable of filling the world with something different by adding your consciousness to this world and giving something special - your uniqueness." ― Natasha Rendell, Nathon's Keys to Freedom

"It is a beautiful thing to be on fire for justice… there is no greater joy than inspiring and empowering others––especially the least of these, the precious and priceless wretched of the earth!" ― Cornel West, Black Prophetic Fire
