“God and I are like two fat people in a tiny boat, we keep bumping into each other and laughing” – Rumi

“They have tried to prove our democracy an empty fraud, and our nation a consistent oppressor of underprivileged people. This may seem ludicrous to Americans, but it is sufficiently important to worry our friends.  The United States is not so strong, the final triumph of the democratic ideal is not so inevitable that we can ignore what the world thinks of us or our record.”    Truman’s Committee  on Civil Rights quoted in Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States.

“I believe in all that has not yet been spoken.” Rainer Maria Rilke
