Shimmer of Gold

"A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. 
Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. 
But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, 
the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture."
-Abraham Joshua Heschel 

"I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. 
There was such a glory over everything. 
The sun came up like gold through the trees, 
And I felt like I was in heaven."
-Harriet Tubman
