“The universe is composed of subjects to be communed with, not primarily of objects to be used.  As a subject, each component of the universe is capable of having rights.”

~Thomas Berry, 1914 – 2009, from Evening Thoughts: Reflecting on Earth as Sacred Community, Appendix 2, pg. 149

“I think that one of our most important tasks is to convince others that there’s nothing to fear in difference; that difference, in fact, is one of the healthiest and most invigorating of human characteristics without which life would become meaningless.  Here lies the power of the liberal way:  not in making the whole world Unitarian, but in helping ourselves and others to see some of the possibilities inherent in viewpoints other than one’s own; in encouraging the free interchange of ideas; in welcoming fresh approaches to the problems of life; in urging the fullest, most vigorous use of critical self-examination.”

~Adlai Stevenson, 1900 – 1965

“We need the courage of the young.  Yours is not the task of making your way in the world, but the task of remaking the world which you will find before you.  May every one of us be granted the courage, the faith and the vision to give the best that is in us to that remaking!”

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”

~Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1882 – 1945
