Katal Quotes of the Week

“To tell the truth is to become beautiful, to begin to love yourself, value yourself. And that’s political, in its most profound way.” —June Jordan

“If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move.”—Matthew 17:20“

“Though they conspire, fake us to make us retire
With the burning desire we make it out of the crossfire
Thoughts are higher, elevating and focused
While the path is narrow, for those like us.”
