Quote by B. B. King
The blues was like that problem child that you may have had in the family. You was a little bit ashamed to let anybody see him, but you loved him. You just didn't know how other people would take it.
This quote reflects the perception and love for blues music. It compares the blues to a problem child in a family, something that brings both shame and attachment. The speaker acknowledges that they may feel a bit embarrassed to share the blues with others, unsure of how they would be received. However, despite the hesitation, they express a deep love and affection for the music, emphasizing the complex and multifaceted nature of the blues.
To believe in a child is to believe in the future. Through their aspirations they will save the world. With their combined knowledge the turbulent seas of hate and injustice will be calmed. They will champion the causes of life's underdogs, forging a society without class discrimination. They will supply humanity with music and beauty as it has never known. They will endure. Towards these ends I pledge my life's work. I will supply the children with tools and knowledge to overcome the obstacles. I will pass on the wisdom of my years and temper it with patience. I shall impact in each child the desire to fulfill his or her dream. I shall teach.
