Terry Tempest Williams: The Human Heart Is the First Home of Democracy

Photo by Molly
The human heart is the first home of democracy. It is where we embrace our questions. Can we be equitable? Can we be generous? Can we listen with our whole beings, and not just our minds, and offer our attention rather than our opinions? And do we have enough resolve in our hearts to act courageously, relentlessly, and without giving up - ever - trusting our fellow citizens to join with us in our determined pursuit of a living democracy?

- Terry Tempest Williams
