1. "Dorothy's coming up. I think she's tight.""That's great." I picked up my bathrobe. "I was afraid I was going to have to get some sleep."She was bending over looking for her slippers. "Don't be such an old fluff. You can sleep all day." She found her slippers and stood up in them. "Is she really as afraid of her mother as she says?""If she's got any sense. Mimi's poison."Nora screwed up her dark eyes at me and asked slowly: "What are you holding out on me?""Oh, dear," I said, " I was hoping I wouldn't have to tell you. Dorothy is really my daughter.

2. "Everything I've read about Christians in prison for their non-violent witness to Christ rings true. Whether it's St. Paul, St. Edmund Campion, Dorothy Day or Dr. King, the experience remains the same: God comes close to those in prison. God's spirit is unleashed on the person who suffers imprisonment in a spirit of obedient love. God is a God of prisoners, a God of the poor, a God of the oppressed--but most of all, as the life of Jesus testifies, a God of nonviolent resisters. God is a God of nonviolence and peace."
Author: John Dear
3. "It was Toto that made Dorothy laugh, and saved her from growing as gray as her other surroundings. Toto was not gray; he was a little black dog, with long silky hair and small black eyes that twinkled merrily on either side of his funny, wee nose. Toto played all day long, and Dorothy played with him, and loved him dearly."
Author: L. Frank Baum
4. "Perhaps it is no wonder that the women were first at the Cradle and last at the Cross. They had never known a man like this Man—there never has been another. A prophet and teacher who never nagged at them, never flattered or coaxed or patronized; who never made arch jokes about them, never treated them as "The women, God help us!" or "The ladies, God bless them!"; who rebuked without querulousness and praised without condescension; who took their questions and arguments seriously; who never mapped out their sphere for them, never urged them to be feminine or jeered at them for being female; who had no axe to grind and no uneasy male dignity to defend; who took them as he found them and was completely unselfconscious. There is no act, no sermon, no parable in the whole Gospel that borrows its pungency from female perversity; nobody could guess from the words and deeds of Jesus that there was anything "funny" about woman's nature. Dorothy Day, Catholic social activist and journalist"

Today's Quote

Onde é que dói na minha vida,para que eu me sinta tão mal?quem foi que me deixou feridade ferimento tão mortal?Eu parei diante da paisagem:e levava uma flor na mão.Eu parei diante da paisagemprocurando um nome de imagempara dar à minha canção.Nunca existiu sonho tão purocomo o da minha timidez.Nunca existiu sonho tão puro,nem também destino tão durocomo o que para mim se fez.Estou caída num vale aberto,entre serras que não têm fim.Estou caída num vale aberto:nunca ninguém passará perto,nem terá notícias de mim.Eu sinto que não tarda a morte,e só há por mim esta flor;eu sinto que não tarda a mortee não sei como é que suportetanta solidão sem pavor.E sofro mais ouvindo um rioque ao longe canta pelo chão,que deve ser límpido e frio,mas sem dó nem recordação,como a voz cujo murmúriomorrerá com o meu coração..."
