The Cobblestone Path


"Come to the edge," he said.  They said, "We are afraid."  "Come to the edge," he said again.  He pushed them... And they flew.  
- Guillaume Apollinaire

First, do what is possible, and soon you will find yourself doing the impossible.  

- Francis of Assisi 


A leader is useless when he acts against the prompting of his own conscience, surrounded as he may be by people holding all kinds of views.  He will drift like an anchorless ship if he has not the inner voice to hold him firm and guide him.  
- Gandhi 



You may be assured that we won't ever let your words die.  Like the words of our Master, Jesus Christ, they will live in our minds and our hearts and in the souls of black men and white men, brown men and yellow men as long as time shall last.

-Ralph Abernathy


If you walk the Cobblestone Path in fear of falling, you'll begin to stumble along. If you hesitate while in the State of fear, you'll know not where you stand. Thus, you'll create doubt in your heart and hand. However, with your eyes fixed on the light, you'll see the path ahead is clear. Then, standing tall and proud you'll express to the world aloud; we're here!  We're about to leave the wilderness for the Promised Land, my dear.
