Happy Birthday, Dorothy Day. Nov 8th, 1897.

“I wanted life and I wanted the abundant life. I wanted it for others too. I did not want just the few, the missionary-minded people like the Salvation Army, to be kind to the poor, as the poor. I wanted everyone to be kind. I wanted every home to be open to the lame, the halt and the blind, the way it had been after the San Francisco earthquake. Only then did people really live, really love their brothers. In such love was the abundant life and I did not have the slightest idea how to find it.” -Dorothy Day, The Long Loneliness

One Response to Life

  1. “The hubris of the human species. Our wisdom is less than crabgrass which knows in its grassy soul the limits to which it can spread.
    It is time to transcend weed consciousness and think only of one World in which all may flower – without choking out the flowering of any neighbor, be they bird, beast, stone – whatever race, whatever creed… we all beat with one Heart.”
    -Nicholas Pierotti, Our Daily Bread
