Believing as we do in growth, and in a new generation, both of those who create and those who enjoy, we call all young people together, and as young people, who carry the future with us, we want to wrest freedom for our actions and our lives from the older, more comfortably established forces. We claim as our own everyone who reproduces directly, and without falsification, whatever it is that drives him to create.

The great poet Walt Whitman was responsible for my outlook on life. During my dismal days of want and hunger in Desden, his Leaves of Grass was and still is my comfort and encouragement.
