I've traveled enough to realize there are brilliant people in every community who know solutions. They don't need saviours, they need allies.
The great lesson is that the sacred is in the ordinary, that it is to be found in one’s daily life, in one’s neighbours, friends and family, in one’s backyard. ~ Abraham Maslow
This is one of those moments when the barriers between who’s a regular person and who’s an activist need to break down. Capitalism has succeeded in convincing us that we’re not worth saving, that we can honestly look each other in the eye and say, ‘We can never do it.’ The job of any social-justice movement is to hold up another image of society and say, ‘We can be more.’ ~ Naomi Klein
Just as one tree standing alone would soon be destroyed by the first strong wind which came along, so it is impossible for any person, any family, or any community to stand alone against the troubles of this world. ~ Hereditary Haida Chief Skidegate, Lewis Collinson
