Cornel West

"Never confuse knowledge with wisdom. By wisdom I mean wrestlng with how to live."
--Cornel West (African American Wisdom)

"Love is a choice--not simply, or necessarily, a rational choice, but rather a willingness to be present to others without pretense or guile." --Carter Heywoard (A Passion for Justice)

"As an entry in any intergalactic design compeitition, industrial civilization would be thrown out at the qualifying round." --David Orr (Orion Jan/Feb 2004)

"There is also in each of us the maveric, the darling stubborn one who won't listen, who insists, who chooses preference or the spritied guess over yardsticks or even history. I suspect this maveric is somwhat what the soul is, or at least that the soul lives close by." --Mary Oliver (Long Life & other essays)
