Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it. --Gandhi
"We had a Good Shepherd convent in our village in England, near London. This was, of course, a Magdalene laundry. It had high walls with spikes on the top. You could only see the roofs of the buildings from outside."
“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.” -- — Goethe
