Rebecca Solnit

When you don’t hear others, you don’t imagine them, they become unreal, and you are left in the wasteland of a world with only yourself in it, and that surely makes you starving, though you know not for what, if you have ceased to imagine others exist in any true deep way that matters.
- Rebecca Solnit

...there was an old woman in Occupy Wall Street I always go back to who said, “We’re fighting for a society in which everyone is important.”
