"Many a society would do well to learn from the circus. The disarray that occasionally plagues us - most specifically our politics - often referred to as a circus is, in fact, no circus at all." #TakeBackTheCircus #MakeAmericaGrinAgain #Ringmaster #Ringlingbros #debatenight #Clinton #Trump

"Think about it: You have all these different types of people with all these unique abilities who come together to create something very beautiful. We live together, we work together; there’s no hierarchy here. “Circus” comes from the Latin root for “circle,” and we operate that way. The working person is just as iconic as the performer and is just as necessary.
It’s a really fascinating thing—especially being Black. If you’re good, your talent literally transcends everything here. When you’re 40 feet in the air attempting to triple somersault, the last thing you’re thinking about is what color that person is, what god they worship, what country their from, if they speak English, if they’re gay or straight. You just want them to catch you."

"Excitement, doubt, and curiosity are expected as we venture toward this new era. I don’t know what the future will hold, but I do know that for over 145 years Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey has made a tradition of re-imagining itself, all the while consistently creating unparalleled memories for children of all ages, for many generations. The show will go on..." #ringlingbros #ringmaster #elephants #conservation #moreelephantslesscancer

"By now it was clear that the sawdust was flowing liberally through her veins, and those plans she had back in Philadelphia took a back seat to this much-welcomed detour."

"Bernice Collins was mesmerized, and for her, there was no turning back. She had to be a part of the world of the circus."
