Lena Mary Calhoun Horne (June 30, 1917 – May 9, 2010) was an American singer, actress, civil rights activist and dancer. Horne joined the chorus of the Cotton Club at the age of sixteen and became a nightclub performer before moving to Hollywood, where she had small parts in numerous movies, and more substantial parts in the films Cabin in the Sky and Stormy Weather. Due to the Red Scare and her left-leaning political views, Horne found herself blacklisted and unable to get work in Hollywood. (source – – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lena_Horne)

Mahatma Gandhi

Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.

William Shakespeare 14

“In thy youth wast as true a lover, As ever sighed upon a midnight pillow”

“Love is not love that alters when it alteration finds”

“She will die if you love her not, And she will die ere she might make her love known”

“This bud of love by summer’s ripening breath, May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet”

Henny Youngman

Do you know what it means to come home at night to a woman who’ll give you a little love, a little affection, a little tenderness? It means you’re in the wrong house, that’s what it means.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

That is the true season of love when we believe that we alone can love that no one could ever have loved so before us and that no one will love in the same way as us.
