Hanging on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; You are the one who gets burned.

What I've come to learn is that the world is never saved in grand messianic gestures, but in the simple accumulation of gentle, soft, almost invisible acts of compassion.

December 27, 1966: Happy 47th birthday, Chris Abani! The Nigerian author has been jailed repeatedly for writing what was seen as anti-government fiction such as his first novel, Masters of the Board, a political thriller published when he was just 16.

I thought that quote looked familiar.

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.

Don't confuse your path with your destination. Just because it's stormy now doesn't mean you aren't headed for sunshine.

Face front, true believers!

Stan Lee


December 28, 1922: Happy 91st birthday, Stan Lee! The comic book legend got his start filling inkwells and fetching lunch at Timely Comics, which would eventually become Marvel. He went on to create characters like Spider-Man and the X-Men.
