“Outfit yourself for the reality you want – not the one you’re in.” – from The Dreamers photo shoot in W magazine, March 2017

This quote seems very apropos even though it was spoken fifty years ago:

“I’m not the least fearful of any foreign enemy so long as we have within ourselves not hate but human understanding, not passion and prejudice but reason and tolerance, and not ignorance but knowledge and the willingness to use that knowledge.” – Governor John Connolly in 1966

Pope Francis told a Swedish newspaper in November that every human being transmits hatred through malicious speech and is potentially a terrorist by simply using abusive language.

Here’s the quote:

“I am speaking of a deceitful and hidden form of terrorism that uses words as bombs that explode, causing devastation in peoples’ lives…It is a way of creating space for yourself by destroying others.” – Pope Francis

Does a universal language exist? The ancients had pictographs, we have emojis!

“…emojis are universal in the strictest sense. Emojis have no gender, no race and no agenda.” – Liam Stack is quoted in the NY Times article “Emoji Bible Translates Scripture Into Smileys”
