Sunday Dinner: Ordinary Acts



“We believe in ordinary acts of bravery,

in the courage that drives one person

to stand up for another.”


Veronica Roth




“Endurance precedes success.”


Wayne Chirisa




“I’m not saying it’s going to be easy;

I’m saying it’s going to be worth it.

If it was easy, you would’ve done it by now”


B. Dave Walters




“I am the bended, but not broken.

I am the power of the thunderstorm.

I am the beauty in the beast.

I am the strength in weakness.

I am the confidence in the midst of doubt.

I am Her!”


Kierra C.T. Banks

“What difference does it make to the dead,

the orphans and the homeless,

whether the mad destruction

is wrought under the name of totalitarianism

or in the holy name of liberty or democracy?”


Mahatma Gandhi





“Who are the learned?

Those who practice what they know”






“If  liberty means anything at all,

it means the right to tell people

what they do not want to hear.”


George Orwell
