People Have Said

My task which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word to make you hear, to make you feel — it is, above all, to make you see. That — and no more, and it is everything. — Joseph Conrad

There but for fortune go you or I. Joan Baez

Stories Matter. Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign, But stories can also be used to empower and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people, But stories can also repair that broken dignity. — Chimamanda Adichie 

Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. . . . When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand — Brenda Ueland

Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying. — Studs Terkel

If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? — 1 John 3:1
