Though justice be thy plea, consider this,
That, in the course of justice, none of us
Should see salvation: we do pray for mercy;
And that same prayer doth teach us all to render
The deeds of mercy.
Aunque la justicia sea tu punto de apoyo, considera bien esto: que en estricta justicia ninguno de nosotros encontrará salvación, rogamos para solicitar clemencia, y este mismo ruego, mediante el cual la solicitamos, nos enseña a todos que debemos mostrarnos clementes

To change readers' minds, you need to speak to their hearts. Telling stories is not just the best way to accomplish that - it's the only way. Poet Maya Angelou put it succinctly when she said: There's a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth."
Daphne Gray-Grant. The power of the personal story

Sunday, April 15, 2012 doesn't take millions of admirers to start a movement than can change the world....What is needed is a few people who have been personally transformed and are committed enough to the cause to be willing to in some way or another put their lives in the service of extending it into every domain of life.

Broken Splendor by Makoto Fujimura
We have a language to celebrate waywardness, but we do not have a cultural language to bring people back home.
