musings

I was asked — among other things — to share my ‘favorite quotes.’  In other words: I had to find a quote that represented a certain philosophy of mine. So I chose a few…

“There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single issue lives.” (Audre Lorde)

“Perhaps one day the world, our world, won’t be upside down, and then any newborn human being will be welcome. Saying, ‘Welcome. Come. Come in. Enter. The entire earth will be your kingdom. Your legs will be your passport, valid forever.’” (Eduardo Galeano)

“We suffer from an incurable malady: Hope.” (Mahmoud Darwish)

“Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.” (Cree proverb)
