Judy Collins Quotes / Quotations

Do what you love, and you will find the way to get it out to the world.
Quotation of Judy Collins


For many centuries, suicides were treated like criminals by the society. That is part of the terrible legacy that has come down into society's method of handling suicide recovery. Now we have to fight off the demons that have been hanging around suicide for centuries.
