Fires can’t be made with dead embers, nor can enthusiasm be stirred by spiritless men. Enthusiasm in our daily work lightens effort and turns even labor into pleasant tasks. – James Baldwin

    James Baldwin’s work and life has always been very influential for me. My favorite and most inspiring is “Everybody’s Protest Novel” The personal and literary growth is astounding, and the implications it had on his personal life demonstrated such a passion for such growth.

    Good Choice!
