Quote of the Day

It's fitting that I came across this quote on the same day I began reading June Jordan's "Poetry for the People: A Revolutionary Blueprint." The quote opens a really wonderful documentary, The Philosopher Kings, that I am reviewing for the LA Weekly.

"Do you think the porter and the cook have no anecdotes, no experiences, no wonders for you? The walls of their minds are scrawled all over with thoughts. They shall one day bring a lantern and read the inscriptions." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
