    Paul Robeson... omg.  I discovered him when I was a teenager.  And was so upset that he was dead by the time I had discovered this great voice.  

    His voice still gives me chills.  Most incredible voice.  He was black man with a definite point of view, and was not hesitant to voice it during a time when black men were not supposed to speak up.

    All the suffering of this world arises from a wrong attitude.The world is neither good or bad. It is only the relation to our ego that makes it seem the one or the other - Lama Anagorika Govinda
