Dear friends, we may well sing to our Beloved when it is near the time of our departure. It draws near, and as it approaches, we must not dread it, but rather thank God for it.
Conventional people are roused to fury by departure from convention, largely because they regard such departure as a criticism of themselves.
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
