Reaching Out

Two of my favorite quotes:

“If a writer’s experience and subjectivity is useful we need to think why? Here I am suggesting that these experiences are of little use if they are not put to work in service of reaching out to others. ”

–Les Back, The Art of Listening (page 160)

“. . . hope is established in the accumulation of small acts that defy division, hatred and mutual misunderstanding . . . .

–Back, 167
