“...Have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God." ― Alice Walker, The Color Purple

"What am I in the eyes of most people - a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person - somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low.

Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me."
Vincent Van Gogh
