Favorite Quotes:

“Love, live life, proceed, progress.” Lil Wayne

“There is nothing more dangerous than someone who wants to make the world a better place.”  Banksy

“Show up.  Never give up.  Always look up.”

Here in this community called La Realidad, where everything is lacking but desire, rain falls relentlessly. The roar of the downpour drowns out the voices making leaden pronouncements or endless speeches, but we get the gist of it despite the thundering, because the urge for justice and luminous diversity of the world are well worth the effort.”  Eduardo Galeano
