“It's okay to disagree with the thoughts or opinions expressed by other people. That doesn't give you the right to deny any sense they might make.

Learn to recognize good writing when you read it, even if it means overcoming your pride and opening your mind beyond what is comfortable.”

T.F. Hodge
“Deep within, there is something profoundly known, not consciously, but subconsciously. A quiet truth, that is not a version of something, but an original knowing. What this, absolute, truth [identity] is may be none of our business…but it is there, guiding us along the path of greater becoming; a true awareness. It is so self-sustaining that our recognition of it is not required. We are offspring’s of such a powerfully divine force – Creator of all things known and unknown.”

“Citizenship is more than an individual exchange of freedoms for rights; it is also membership in a body politic, a nation, and a community.

Criss Jami, Killosophy
