Quote of the Day

I could see that, because the Gandhians listened, they were listened to.  Because they depended on generosity, they created generosity.  Because they walked a nonviolent path, they made one seem possible.  This was the practical organizing wisdom they taught me:
  • If you want people to listen to you, you have to listen to them.
  • If you hope people will change how they live, you have to know how they live.
  • If you want people to see you, you have to sit down with them eye-to-eye.
 -- Gloria Steinem, My Life on the Road, p. 37
