“I want to live in a society filled with people who are curious and concerned about each other rather than afraid of each other. I want to live in a world full of brave people who are willing to risk not only adventure but emotional intimacy. I want to live in a world full of explorers and generous souls rather than people who have voluntarily become prisoners of their own fortresses. I want to live in a world full of people who look into each other’s faces along the path of life and ask, Who are you, my friend, and how can we serve each other? For that to happen, we must all be travelers—in the world, in our own communities, and even in our imaginations.”

Elizabeth M. Gilbert

The above quote was taken from the article “Elizabeth Gilbert’s Life-Changing Story from Indonesia (That You Haven’t Heard),” which is well worth a read.

What is wordless Wednesday? “On Wednesdays all over the internet, bloggers post a photograph with no words to explain it on their blog. Hence the ‘wordless’ title. The idea is that the photo itself says so much that it doesn’t need any description.” —wiki.answers
