Yuan T. Lee
You're an idealist, and I pity you as I would the village idiot.
When you truly accept that those children in some far off place in the global village have the same value as you in God's eyes or even in just your eyes, then your life is forever changed; you see something that you can't un-see.
Emigration, forced or chosen, across national frontiers or from village to metropolis, is the quintessential experience of our time.

There was a village watercolour society and they'd come and paint in my field. I watched them from the window, the way they would struggle this way and that to find the perfect moment. God has made every angle on that beautiful, and I felt that tremendously.
We live in a global village. No country can live in isolation of others like Robinson Crusoe.
When I was in south Sudan, people used to rap in my village. But the rapping was more in the mother tongue, Nuer.
I grew up in Sierra Leone, in a small village where as a boy my imagination was sparked by the oral tradition of storytelling. At a very young age I learned the importance of telling stories - I saw that stories are the most potent way of seeing anything we encounter in our lives, and how we can deal with living.
I keep a very low profile in Switzerland. There are only about 2,000 people in the village I live in, so it's a quiet town.

Early on, I was so impressed with Charles Dickens. I grew up in the South, in a little village in Arkansas, and the whites in my town were really mean, and rude. Dickens, I could tell, wouldn't be a man who would curse me out and talk to me rudely.
I had a world of people raising me; it was like a little village.
If you would be known, and not know, vegetate in a village; if you would know, and not be known, live in a city.
Charles Caleb Colton
Two days after the Boston marathon bombings, there was a drone strike in Yemen attacking a peaceful village, which killed a target who could very easily have been apprehended.

Creative people who can't help but explore other mental territories are at greater risk, just as someone who climbs a mountain is more at risk than someone who just walks along a village lane.
R. D. Laing

This is going to make me sound ancient, but I remember Juhu Beach when there weren't any buildings on it. You'd go through countryside and arrive at this amazing beach. I remember driving from Delhi to the Qutab Minar through countryside. Mehrauli was a little village - that's all gone.
The computer is my favourite invention. I feel lucky to be part of the global village. I don't mean to brag, but I'm so fast with technology. People think it all seems too much, but we'll get used to it. I'm sure it all seemed too much when we were learning to walk.
My only worry about tweeting and modern technology is how it has crept into even the darkest corners of the absolute global village we live in.
I'm every woman. It takes a village to make me who I am.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
