Before today my body was useless.Now it's tearing at its square corners.It's tearing old Mary's garments off, knot by knotand see - Now it's shot full of these electric bolts.Zing! A resurrection!

You did this.Pure genius at work. Darling, the composer has steppedinto fire."

The anticipation of the game to come. But that was when all I had to lose was my life."

If we can't have ham, we will boil chitterlings; if we are given rotten peaches, we will make cobblers; if given scraps, we will make quilts; take away our drums, and we will clap our hands. We prove the human spirit will prevail. We will take what we have to make what we need. We need confidence in our knowledge of who we are."
