David Kinnaman
“The motivation of transparency is important. The culture teaches people to be candid and blunt, but this usually revolves around self-centeredness – you have a right to express your true feelings and your rage. This is an entitlement. Instead, the Christian way to approach transparency is to realize out candidness should be motivated by a desire to have a pure heart before God and others.”
David Kinnaman, unChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks about Christianity... and Why It Matters

Holly Schindler
“When he looks back at me, his eyes travel around my face the way fingers dart through the bottom of a drawer, searching for batteries in a blackout.”

“If you remove Al Sharpton’s blackness, he disappears. He’s transparent. There’s nothing there because he bases his whole life on his blackness. Me, I’m a black man; but my blackness has submission to my Christianity.”
Ken Hutcherson

“Evil is nourished and grows by concealment.”

Kamand Kojouri

so you no longer cast a shadow
but instead let the light pass through you.”
Kamand Kojouri

Kathryn Schulz
“Here, then, are some ways we can try to prevent mistakes. We can foster the ability to listen to each other and the freedom to speak our minds. We can create open and transparent environments instead of cultures of secrecy and concealment. And we can permit and encourage everyone, not just a powerful inner circle, to speak up when they see the potential for error.
These measures might be a prescription for identifying and eliminating mistakes, but they sound like something else: a prescription for democracy. That's not an accident. Although we don't normally think of it in these terms, democratic governance represents another method—this time a political rather than an industrial or personal one—for accepting the existence of error and trying to curtail its more dangerous incarnations.”
Kathryn Schulz, Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error

T.K. Naliaka
“Transparency is critical in public health and epidemics; laypeople become either effective force-multipliers or stubborn walls.”
T.K. Naliaka

“Telling the difference between transparent and invisible is an acquired skill. Until you've practiced, you can't make the choice between looking through and looking at.”
David Whiteland, Book of Pages

Sam Harris
“Honesty can force any dysfunction in your life to the surface. Are you in an abusive relationship? A refusal to lie to others – How did you get that bruise? – would oblige you to come to grips with this situation very quickly. Do you have a problem with drugs or alcohol? Lying is the lifeblood of addiction. If we have no recourse to lies, our lives can unravel only so far without others noticing.

Telling the truth can also reveal ways in which we want to grow but haven’t.”
Sam Harris, Lying

“Tell the truth about any situation & you are delivered from lack of progress, but become hypocritical or lying, and you may be in bondage for life.”

Curtis Tyrone Jones
“Give it air & let the scar on your soul reveal itself, because, like the body, it too was made to heal itself.”
Curtis Tyrone Jones

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“If you think you can stand to know what you’re made of, try kneeling before God.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Nithin Purple
“The early dew-falls that did a pristine coating,
over the woods with its finest transparency,
glazed as like its wet white-glassy earrings that hung on the ears of wild flowers—unlatched my fancy.”
Nithin Purple, Venus and Crepuscule: Beauty and Violence on Me Thrown

“Why do the powerful always insist on having a “back story” to justify whatever they do? Why can’t they—just once—do something for the simple reason that it is the right thing to do, in itself, for reasons understood and accepted by all? In politics, laws are passed to secretly serve hidden agendas, for without such agendas many lawmakers would never find the motivation to support anything at all.”
Clifford Cohen

Delora Argiro O'Brien
“It is in the deconstruction of ourselves that we begin to build our lives.”
Delora Argiro O'Brien

“If the food that one ate the night before were somehow able to be seen and identified through one’s clothes throughout the day, millions of employees would each fast ten or so days before their payday.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Curtis Tyrone Jones
“We're only lucky enough to see the wonders of nature's canyons because they're gracious enough to show us the places they've been damaged.”
