Tied together

The Artdog Quote of the Week

I ran across this quote in a column by Michael Gerson, who quoted one of my favorite modern philosophers:

Our country–indeed, our world–seems riven by factions, divided into mutually hostile camps. Yet I dare to hope that many of us retain enough of our grip on reality to remember this.

Amongst all the shouting and all the fear-mongering, please hold tight to this idea. We are all inescapably “tied in a single garment of destiny”–and thus “I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be.”

Humanity becomes inhumanity when we turn on each other. Let’s not, okay?
