    africa's wailing children-sometimes I wished it was possible to extend my arms around all of africa's children and to let them feel the love and hope for a brighter day-from uncertainty-lack of food and water-good health and housing-from tribal wars- and to enjoy my reggae music in love and peace. I will continue to pray.

  3. Batman:

    Gotham has fallen silent. The night is no longer broken by the sounds of crime. Children are no longer waken by the sudden crack of a gunshot. There are no more cries in the darkness. No tires screech as wailing sirens chase desperate men and women through narrow streets. In a way it is a Gotham I've always dreamed of. But this is no dream. This is a perversion. This is a nightmare. It is the silence of fear. A silence only broken by the sound of marching feet. A sound that echoes around the world. Marching feet. The rhyme of dictators. Our world is ruled by iron fist of the man of steel.

  4. Kevin Smith:

    We were trying to make it even before the heart attack happened, we were getting close, then the heart attack happened and pushed us back like a year or something. But after the heart attack, the movie just became informed by it, because they told me,' Hey, you got a 20 % chance of living tonight' -- which is like' You've got an 80 % chance of dying, motherf-cker.' And so all I could think about was, like,' Oh, s ---, this is the end.' And I wasn't upset, I wasn't wailing and gnashing teeth. I was like,' You know what ? I had a really good run, and I'm only 47, and that part sucks, but I can't complain.'.

    All these people who are wailing and gnashing of teeth know that there are two ways of doing what they want to do, one, is to change the government and the other is to change the law. If they do either of those that will then have an effect.
