Ira Glass Advice to Creators

True Warrior***

Tell me, what is that you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? 

-Mary Oliver, Poet

You Cannot live a political life, you cannot live a moral life if you’re not willing to open your eyes and see the world more clearly. See some of the injustice that’s going on. Try to make yourself aware of what’s happening in the world. And when you are aware, you have a responsibility to act. 

-Bill Ayers, cofounder of the Weather Underground


We Will have to build that resistance from whatever comes to hand: whispers and prayers, history and dreams, from our bravest words and braver actions. It will be hard, there will be a cost, and in too many implacable dawns it will seem impossible. But we will have to do it anyway. So gather your heart and join with every living being. With love as our First Cause, how can we fail?

-Derrick Jensen, Deep Green Resistance

Somebody, after…

Somebody, after all, had to make a start. What we wrote and said is also believed by many others. They just do not dare express themselves as we did.

-Sophie Scholl, The White Rose Society
