Lyndon Johnson biographer Robert Caro tells Dave Davies about how how civil rights leaders of the era regarded Johnson:
They come in suspicious, you know. Johnson always wanted to meet with people one-on-one. … A friend of his said, ‘One-on-one he’s the greatest salesman who ever lived.’ So a group of civil rights leaders — Martin Luther King, Roy Wilkins, James Farmer — want to meet with him. One of his secretaries says, ‘Should I schedule them as a group?’ And he says to her, ‘No, one at a time,’ and each one has the same reaction. … I think it’s Roy Qilkins who says this: that ‘[I] went in there suspicious and then Johnson pulled up almost knee-to-knee me and leaned into my face and told me how much he wanted civil rights and for the first time I had real hope that this bill was going to pass.’”

Spirituality is not to be learned by flight from the world, or by running away from things, or by turning solitary and going apart from the world. Rather, we must learn an inner solitude wherever or with whomsoever we may be. We must learn to penetrate things and find God there.

I was such a “Noah” as a basketball player
Noah better act like he got some sense before they drag you out by that pony tail
what can i say?
