  • Genet had been right at least about one thing. Blacks should be used to play whites. For centuries we had probed their faces, the angles of their bodies, the sounds of their voices and even their odors.Often our survival had depended on the accurate reading of a white man’s chuckle or the disdainful wave of a white woman’s hand.

Yes, Yes, it’s that time again! Don’t you just love coming here and seeing a new quote? I do! Well enough of the gabing here it is;

It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. The quotations, when engraved upon the memory, give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.

I’ve traveled the world twice over,

Met the famous; saints and sinners,

Poets and artists, kings and queens,

Old stars and hopeful beginners,

I’ve been where no-one’s been before,

Learned secrets from writers and cooks

All with one library ticket
To the wonderful world of books!

I know you think reading’s not cool but, look it can be!

Here it is; Yes, Yes, the quote for the day:

 

Literacy is not a luxury, it is a right and a responsibility. If our world is to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century we must harness the energy and creativity of all our citizens. 

 – President Clinton on International Literacy Day, September 8th 1994
