“If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world, and that his heart is no island cut off from other lands, but a continent that joins to them.” ~ Francis Bacon

A Quote from Harry Hay

On the path towards acceptance and finding a welcoming place for ourselves in the world that we live in and indeed creating that welcome place in the world that we create for ourselves and within ourselves.

“We know how to live through their eyes.
We can always play their games,
but are we denying ourselves by doing this?
If you’re going to carry the skin of
conformity over you, you are going to
suppress the beautiful
prince or princess within you.”
Harry Hay
