Folksinging Activist Pete Seeger Was Born 99 Years Ago Today


“And there’s a wonderful parable in the New Testament: The sower scatters seeds. Some seeds fall in the pathway and get stamped on, and they don’t grow. Some fall on the rocks, and they don’t grow. But some seeds fall on fallow ground, and they grow and multiply a thousandfold. Who knows where some good little thing that you’ve done may bring results years later that you never dreamed of?”

— Pete Seeger (May 3, 1919 – January 27, 2014)
