There are only two forces in the world, the sword and the spirit. In the long run, the sword will always be conquered by the spirit.

Bessie-isms and Quotable for August 25, 2015


*The wise parent simply sends their disobedient child out into the world, knowing it will well punish them for their obstinacy.
