  • “He wanted to see the truth of his life no matter what is was or what it lost him. This was a matter of moral survival.”
  • “The moral demand of dialogue is that each grants equal authority to the other voice. Committing yourself to dialogue with people is more than recognizing their inherent dignity and defending their rights; it’s being willing to allow their voices to count as much as yours.”

[Arthur Frank, The Renewal of Generosity: Illness, Medicine and How to Live (2004).]

  • “If we look at the world in the form of a circle, let us look at what is on the inside of the circle as experience, culture and knowledge: let us look at this as the past. What is outside of the circle is yet to be experienced. But in order to expand the circle we must know what is inside the circle. It has been the art that has brought us back to our roots. I am proud to be one of those people chosen to put the puzzle back together and move on. The challenge is ours to keep expanding the circle.”

[Robert Davidson (guud san glans), Four Decades: An Innocent Gesture.]
