"If a human being dreams a great dream, dares to love somebody; if a human being dares to be Martin King, or Mahatma Gandhi, or Mother Theresa, or Malcolm X; if a human being dares to be bigger than the condition into which she or he was born—it means so can you.

. I am a human being, nothing human can be alien to me.' That's one thing I'm learning." — Dr. Maya Angelou
