Abhijit Naskar
“Work, work and work, until you see the change manifesting as reality, which everybody else only wishes for with their hands joined and head bowed as meek, mind-less, second-hand worshipers and slaves of illusory masters.”
Abhijit Naskar, Let The Poor Be Your God

“We rarely hear about clients who come in and ask for the newest social worker. That's too bad because, to me, new social workers are a gift.”
Danna R. Bodenheimer, On Clinical Social Work: Meditations and Truths From the Field
