„He thrived with passion and compassion, humor and style. We had him whether we know who he was or did not know, he was ours and we were his.“

—  Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
Context: Though we are many, each of us is achingly alone, piercingly alone. Only when we confess our confusion can we remember that he was a gift to us and we did have him. He came to us from the creator, trailing creativity in abundance. Despite the anguish, his life was sheathed in mother love, family love, and survived and did more than that. He thrived with passion and compassion, humor and style. We had him whether we know who he was or did not know, he was ours and we were his.

„... there is always inequity in life. Some men are killed in a war and some men are wounded, and some men never leave the country, and some men are stationed in the Antarctic and some are stationed in San Francisco. It's very hard in the military or personal life to assure complete equality. Life is unfair.“

—  John F. Kennedy 35th president of the United States of America 1917 - 1963
