It is the ability of citizens to care that creates strong communities and able democracies.
Illness is the night side of life, a more onerous citizenship. Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place. ~ Susan Sontag
If you want to change the world … find the piece of your city that needs fixing, find the issue that you think is important — be it environment, be it social, be it cultural, what is it that you’re passionate about — and start to participate in the city that you live in and use the tools given to you through your training to articulate alternate realities which could inspire others and maybe shape the future of your city in one small way. ~ Gregory Henriquez
We’re living in a dispensation that is endlessly reinforcing the idea that we are not citizens but economic players. And under that dispensation it’s in nobody’s interest, especially those in power, to encourage or foster the idea that there’s any class difference. ~ Tim Winton
