I remember these quotes from my early years as a young activist on the arts and culture scene in Toronto, and it was wonderful to be reminded of them today. I found them on this blog; if you haven't had a chance to check it out, definitely swing by . . .
"When I dare to be powerful - to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid."
-- Audre Lorde
"If you are free, you are not predictable and you are not controllable."
-- June Jordan
The second one resonates quite strongly with me at this juncture in my life. Do either of the above quotes mean anything to you?
