“We often fear that the Revolution needed is too big for what we can give. Too much  change is required inside, outside. And we are too small. But all that is required is that you step into the truth of your life. And speak it, write it, paint it, dance it. That you shine your light on your truth, for the world to see. And as hundreds, then thousands, then millions do this—each sparking the courage of yet more—suddenly  we have a world alight with truth.”   —Lucy H. Pearce, Burning Woman
