Girl who dances in a cage

Quote of the Day:

This conversation between a father and son is from the book "Lion's Blood" by Steven Barnes:

"You are on the cusp. And crossing it is always difficult and often feels like death itself. This is the moment, this is your time. It is not sex that makes a boy a man, nor feats of arms, nor wealth, nor worldly responsibilities."

"What, then?"

"The understanding that other human beings have a spirit, an essence equal in the eyes of God, whatever their station in life. We must measure our actions and reactions in this world lest we pay dearly. It is the measured consideration of every word and action, and their consequences, that makes a man a man. Nothing less."
