I was reminded of something I read some time ago that was written by William Schulz, the Executive Director of Amnesty International USA, a group that works for people imprisoned for their beliefs. He said: ” I think we who work for justice and come face to face regularly with its negation are at risk of losing that which animates all healthy beings: the capacity to respond to the graciousness draping the world in colors vivid and electric, the warmth of the sun, a lover’s touch. If we neglect to notice these, why attend to anything else? E.B.White said, “every morning I awake torn between a desire to save the world and a desire to savor it. This makes it hard to plan the day.” But if we forget to savor the world, what possible reason do we have for saving it? In a way, the savoring must come first.
Essentially 3 awesome quotes mixed together, if my sources are correct they are the thoughts of Mary Spilde, William Schulz and E.B White. I hope by posting this it becomes useful to somebody
