“The opposite of poverty is not wealth. The opposite of poverty is justice.”

“I saw the suffering and I let myself feel it… I saw the injustice and was compelled to do something about it. I changed from being a nun who only prayed for the suffering world to a nun with my sleeves rolled up, living my prayer.”

Sister Helen Prejean, This I Believe II (via emotional-algebra)

She joins Bryan Stevenson at LIVE from the NYPL this month: http://www.nypl.org/events/programs/2014/10/28/bryan-stevenson?nref=56896

“For me, there’s a power in tracking the way that fictions are made, the way that lived experience becomes material for fiction. And for me that requires a first person who’s me and not me so that I can kind of make the process of the way lived experience gets transposed into fiction a part of the work.”
