I'm so pissed off, I'd actually take a working position with Al'Quaeda over my current work, because eventhough I love my work, I hate working for the people I work under. People from a care organization that is run by the church, forbid me to actually care about people, and treated me like a terrorist for being human and for being the kind and friendly person I was raised as.
I also see the point now in the quote of Muhammad Ali, who once said "At home I'm a nice guy: but I don't want the world to know. Humble people, I've found, don't get very far".
So many quotes of very well known people surrounded me today. I find them to be true. But sadly most other people won't agree.
"Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system." ~Bruce Lee~
"However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you don not act by them?" ~Siddhartha "Buddha" Gautama~
"We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection." ~Dalai Lama~
"Whoever stands by a just cause cannot possibly be called a terrorist. ~Yassir Arafat~
"Talking isn't doing. It is a kind of good deed to say well; and yet words are not deeds. ~William Shakespeare~
"We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty." ~ Agnes "Mother Teresa" Gonxha Bojaxhiu~
And not to forget a song that has been circling my mind ever since I first heard it:
Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on
I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he's a victim of the times.
I wear the black for those who never read,
Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
About the road to happiness through love and charity,
Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me.
Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose,
In our streak of lightnin' cars and fancy clothes,
But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back,
Up front there ought 'a be a Man In Black.
I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold,
I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been,
Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.
And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,
Believen' that the Lord was on their side,
I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
Believen' that we all were on their side.
Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
And things need changin' everywhere you go,
But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
You'll never see me wear a suit of white.
Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black!
I live by it.
