"Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don’t know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn’t you. That isn’t you at all."
Leila Sales, This Song Will Save Your Life (via larmoyante)
"If Black people knew their glorious history they’d be more inclined to respect themselves"
Marcus Garvey (via afrikan-mapambano)

"The lesson I have to teach is this: Leave all creative energies uninhibited. Merely organize society to act in harmony with this lesson. Let society’s legal apparatus remove all obstacles the best it can. Permit these creative know-hows freely to flow. Have faith that free men and women will respond to the Invisible Hand. This faith will be confirmed. I, Pencil, seemingly simple though I am, offer the miracle of my creation as testimony that this is a practical faith, as practical as the sun, the rain, a cedar tree, the good earth."
Leonard E. Read, from “I, Pencil,” Library of Economics and Liberty online (via apoetreflects)
