Walt Whitman
“WE two boys together clinging,
One the other never leaving,
Up and down the roads going, North and South excursions making,
Power enjoying, elbows stretching, fingers clutching,
Arm'd and fearless, eating, drinking, sleeping, loving.
No law less than ourselves owning, sailing, soldiering, thieving,
threatening,
Misers, menials, priests alarming, air breathing, water drinking, on
the turf or the sea-beach dancing,
Cities wrenching, ease scorning, statutes mocking, feebleness
chasing,
Fulfilling our foray.”
Walt Whitman

Desmond Tutu
“A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.”
Desmond Tutu

Clare Ansberry, The Women of Troy Hill: The Back-Fence Virtues of Faith and Friendship

“To become a true global citizen, one must abandon all notions of 'otherness' and instead embrace 'togetherness'. The world is no longer white, black, yellow and brown. Through love, tribes have been intermixing colors to reveal a new rainbow world. And as more time passes, this racial and cultural blending will make it harder for humans to side with one race, nation or religion over another. Therefore, practical wisdom should be used to abandon any cultural, social, religious, tribal, and national beliefs of alterity altogether. This is the only way mankind will truly evolve. Segregation is a word of the past. Unity is the key to a peaceful future.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Banana Yoshimoto
“Why were we so far apart, even when we were together? It was a nice loneliness, like the sensation of washing your face in cold water.”
Banana Yoshimoto, The Lake

Jean Ferris

"We know we're in exactly the right place," he finished.”
Jean Ferris, Once Upon a Marigold

“To become a true global citizen, one must abandon all notions of 'otherness' and instead embrace 'togetherness'.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“I will tell you what we shall do: if ever you need to rescue Catherine, or you Berkley, Maximus, I will help you, and you will do as much for me. Then we do not need to worry, I do not suppose anyone could stop all three of us, at least not before we can escape”
Naomi Novik, His Majesty's Dragon

“When two brothers are busy fighting, an evil man can easily attack and rob their poor mother. Mankind should always stay united, standing shoulder to shoulder so evil can never cheat and divide them.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

David Foster Wallace
“Nothing brings you together like a common enemy.”
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

Wallace Stegner
“There must be some other possibility than death or lifelong penance ... some meeting, some intersection of lines; and some cowardly, hopeful geometer in my brain tells me it is the angle at which two lines prop each other up, the leaning-together from the vertical which produces the false arch. For lack of a keystone, the false arch may be as much as one can expect in this life. Only the very lucky discover the keystone.”
Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose

Anthony Liccione
“The distance of a voice, is only a short time away from touch.”
Anthony Liccione

Bill Gates

Bill Gates

“Language is still separating us even though technology is bringing us closer together.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

A.S. Byatt
“Randolph Henry Ash: “What is it? My dear?”
Christabel LaMotte: “Ah, how can we bear it?”
Randolph Henry Ash: “Bear what?”
Christabel LaMotte: “This. For so short a time. How can we sleep this time away?”
Randolph Henry Ash: “We can be quiet together, and pretend – since it is only the beginning – that we have all the time in the world.”
Christabel LaMotte: “And every day we shall have less. And then none.”
Randolph Henry Ash: “Would you rather, therefore, have had nothing at all?”
Christabel LaMotte: “No. This is where I have always been coming to. Since my time began. And when I go away from here, this will be the mid-point, to which everything ran, before, and from which everything will run. But now, my love, we are here, we are now, and those other times are running elsewhere.”
A.S. Byatt, Possession

“I won't let my best friends do silly,stupid,annoying,funny things

“Thanks to Karen Connelly who read earlier versions of this manuscript and to Ronald Hatch my editor and publisher.”
Nancy Holmes, Mandorla

“I've written you sixty-seven love poems.
Here’s another one for you.
But really, for me.
These poems are the candles that I light
with the fire you have ignited in me.
I place this candle here and another there
so even if the stars have argued with the moon
and are sulking away in a corner,
you can still find your way to me.
Sixty-eight poems now. What
does the future hold for us?
Joy? Disappointment? Gentle caresses? And subtle neglect?
I hope the good is more than the bad. Much more.
For what is the point of love
if by lighting these candles
our own flame loses its brightness?
I know the good is more than the bad.
Much more.
I cannot wait to write you sixty-nine.”
Kamand Kojouri
