langston-hughes-feature-cover

This Saturday’s Life Quotes are snippets from the great American poet Langston Hughes (1902-1967):

“Folks, I’m telling you,
birthing is hard
and dying is mean-
so get yourself
a little loving
in between.”

 

“I stay cool, and dig all jive,
That’s the way I stay alive.
My motto,
as I live and learn,
is
Dig and be dug
In return.”

 

“Hold fast to dreams
for if dreams die
life is a broken-winged bird
that can not fly.

Hold fast to dreams
for when dreams go
life is a barren field
frozen with snow.”
