The fear and unease that arise from mistrust and suspicion, seeing other people in terms of “us” and “them”, is not easily overcome by just closing your eyes or saying a prayer. It’s real concern for others that breeds trust and leads to friendship and a sense of security. Inner peace, a practical source of peace and confidence, depends on warm-heartedness and a concern for others’ well being.
- John Dewey

"What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place."
- Kurt Vonnegut
