Quotes tagged “Freedom”
On a corner with a sign bleeding from their gums
Talking about you don't support a crack head?
What you think happens to the money from your taxes?
Shit the Government's an addict
With a billion dollar a week kill brown people habit
And even if you ain't on the front line
When massah yell crunch time, you right back at it
Plain look at how you hustling backwards
At the end of the year, add up what they subtracted
Three outta twelve months your salary pays for that madness
Man, that's sadness
What's left? get a big ass plasma
To see where they made Dan Rather point the damn camera
Only approved questions get answered
Now stand your ass up for that national anthem”
Ellen: As I put it in, I realize that the bars that are against the window— because I had it against the window to see fresh air— were wide enough for it to go out. And it had been like that all along.
Howard: But you never would leave?
Ellen: The bird was looking at me like, 'Wait a minute.' And I’m looking at the bird like, 'Wait a minute, don’t go. This is where you belong, and it’s a beautiful cage.' The bird who was me says, 'I don’t belong here,' and flies out. I was like, 'No matter how pretty this cage is, I’m not going to live in it.' I was doing well financially. I was doing well professionally. But I felt I was not free.”
