Solitude is the place where we can connect with profound bonds that are deeper than the emergency bonds of fear and anger.
Coward: One who, in a perilous emergency, thinks with his legs.
What I've learned is that unless it's an emergency, like a fire or brain surgery, hierarchy is not necessary and may be damaging. If you have a hierarchy, you're repeating the strengths and weaknesses of one person without allowing for the accumulative strength of a group.
Never invest emergency savings in the stock market.

Particularly conservative Christians, I was very angry that they were not involved more in the AIDS emergency.

Anyone that's involved in development has discovered that all the good work that's been done in development has been undone by the AIDS emergency.

Women who have it all should try having nothing: I have no husband, no children, no real estate, no stocks, no bonds, no investments, no 401(k), no CDs, no IRAs, no emergency fund - I don't even have a savings account.
