“‘Humanism’ is to be human, to think, to analyze, and to probe. To respond and to be stimulated by all living things – beasts, fowl, and fishes. To respond through touch, sight, smell, and sound to all things in nature – both organic and inorganic-to colors, shapes, and textures – to not only look at a blade of grass but to really see a blade of grass. These things, to me, are what life and living are all about. I would call it “Humanism.'”

“Candor is a compliment; it implies equality. It’s how true friends talk.”
