Helen Gray Cone Quote

Picture Quote:

Bind her, grind her, burn her with fire, Cast her ashes into the sea, — She shall escape, she shall aspire, She shall arise to make men free; She shall arise in a sacred scorn, Lighting the lives that are yet unborn, Spirit supernal, splendor eternal, England!  - Helen Gray Cone

Quote of the day

I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps Oh look at that! Then — whoosh, and I'm gone... and they'll never see anything like it ever again... and they won't be able to forget me — ever.
