Alice Walker: 'I feel dedicated to the whole of humanity'
Alice Walker: “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.”
Don't wait around for others to be happy for you. Know you have accomplished something great and keep getting better. Make your own happiness!
One of my favorite poems and the idea of expecting nothing has been with me since the book the Mircrobe Hunters. More sustaining for me than thinking you can have the sun, the moon, and the stars.
