"The farthest star and the mud at our feet are a family; and there is no decency or sense in honoring one thing, or a few things, and then closing the list. The pine tree, the leopard, the river and ourselves — we are at risk together, or we are on our way to a sustainable world together. We are each other's destiny."

—Mary Oliver, quoted in "Allow hatred to be enfolded by love" by Dominican Sr. Margaret Galiardi
