that recognizes the equality of all,
and pays honor to the sacredness of interconnection.

in front of the heart and bow the head slightly.

It is a wonderful advantage to a man,
in every pursuit or avocation,
to secure an adviser in a sensible woman.
In woman there is at once a subtle delicacy of tact,
and a plain soundness of judgement,
which are rarely combined to an equal degree in man.

will have a sensitive regard for your character, honor, repute.
She will seldom counsel you to do a shabby thing:
for a woman friend always desires to be proud of you.

and that is good.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We tend to label people - Genius, Idiot,

merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.

only a fixed quantity of each resource -
a limited amount of food, of money,

inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.
