New Year's Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved.

Only dreams give birth to change.
Sarah Ban Breathnach

Susan B. Anthony
One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.

I want to be a good leader, not a good lady leader. I don't want to be known simply as the woman who gave birth.
A miracle is really the only way to describe motherhood and giving birth. It's unbelievable how God has made us women and babies to endure and be able to do so much. A miracle, indeed. Such an incredible blessing.
There is an electric fire in human nature tending to purify - so that among these human creatures there is continually some birth of new heroism. The pity is that we must wonder at it, as we should at finding a pearl in rubbish.

John Henrik Clarke

Abolitionists believe that, as all men are born free, so all who are now held as slaves in this country were born free, and that they are slaves now is the sin, not of those who introduced the race into this country, but of those, and those alone, who now hold them and have held them in slavery from their birth.
Elijah Parish Lovejoy
A man is great by deeds, not by birth.
