Two Quotes

With the political and economic (oh hell, let's just call it what it is, shall we?) war between the classes, AND the more natural disasters in Japan and elsewhere, two quotes have been playing tag in my head.

Pray for the dead, and fight like hell for the living.
--"Mother" Mary Jones

If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution.
--Emma Goldman

Do something. Do it here and now and visible to the world. Do it also, and as well, in the magical and spiritual. And don't forget to add joy.

(Twice now, I've composed grand, and somewhat pretentious, all encompassing and advice laden endings for this post. And twice, those endings have vanished. I can take a hint.)

Sometimes the fewest words say the most, eh?


Rose Weaver said...

Most excellent, completely agree, and well stated!

I've always loved that Emma Goldman quote. Indeed: take a stand, but don't forget to enjoy yourself while you're at it.

I just can't BELIEVE the word verification is "militia". Synchonicity abounds!
