September 26 “Relationships move at the speed of trust, but social change moves at the speed of relationships.” ~ Jennifer Bailey, Faith Matters Network, and Greater Bethel AME Church in Nashville, Tennessee.


September 19 “Social reality is a superpower that emerges from an ensemble of human brains. It gives us the possibility to chart our own destiny and even influence the evolution of our species. We can make up abstract concepts, share them, weave them into a reality, and conquer just about any environment​—​natural, political, or social​—​as long as we work together. We have more control over reality than we might think. We also have more responsibility for reality than we might realize.” ~ Lisa Feldman Barrett, Seven and a Half Lessons About the Brain.


September 12 “Whatever a man trusts in, that he makes his God, whether it is gold or silver, or the honors and pleasures of this world; if he trusts in these things, he makes them his God.” ~ Stephen Crisp, 1628-1692


September 5 “The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” ~ Abraham Lincoln
