All- If people all over the world…would do this,
One- It would change the earth.” ~ William Faulkner

Quotes & Readings

“Trump does not so much struggle with the truth as strangle it altogether. He lies to avoid. He lies to inflame. He lies to promote and to preen. Sometimes he seems to lie just for the hell of it. He traffics in conspiracy theories that he cannot possibly believe and in grotesque promises that he cannot possibly fulfill. When found out, he changes the subject—or lies larger.” ~ David Remnick The New Yorker

“We have a responsibility to the truth, our industry needs it and our clients deserve it. We have developed a terrible habit of telling half the truth, half the time. We speak in dreadful jargon that obscures what it pretends to clarify. We have also become too congenial, too respectable and too polite. We are in desperate need of troublemakers. We need shit disturbers, we need hell raisers. We need the kind of quarrelsome, pugnacious, opinionated people that make the arts vibrant and interesting… even if their crazy, even if their wrong, even if their obnoxious. They keep us honest and keep us on our toes.” ~ Bob Hoffman, speaking to the marketing/advertising community

“In a room where
people unanimously maintain a conspiracy of silence,
one word of truth
sounds like a pistol shot.” ―Czesław Miłosz

Seed of Truth

“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it..” ~ Naomi Wolf

Say together: I speak my truth, even if my voice shakes, my knees buckle, and the earth trembles beneath me.
