“The heart of their [Walsingham Witnesses] religion seemed to lie in disproving the religion of others.”
Rosemary Mahoney, The Singular Pilgrim: Travels on Sacred Ground

“No, Rose!' he shrieks, hopping up and down on the bed. 'Don't leeeeeave! Watch My Little Pony with me!' He jumps to the floor, grams my hand, and leads my back to the bed, and when I sit again he puts an arm around my neck in what is part hug, part half nelson. He breathes on my nose. He is desperate to keep me here, desperate to share his interest with someone... Who could blame anyone, child or adult, for wanting to enrich his experience by sharing it with a friend, a caring witness? We all want that.”
Rosemary Mahoney, Selfish, Shallow, and Self-Absorbed: Sixteen Writers on The Decision Not To Have Kids

“One of the greatest obstacles for blind children, not just in Tibet but everywhere in the world, is that they are seldom treated equally with sighted children, that they are perceived as being helpless, as somehow special and different. "In families and the community beyond, very little is expected of the blind child. This reinforces in them the feeling that they are useless and incapable. Special isn't good either way.”
