"Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind.” 
-Rigoberta Menchú Tum, Guatemalan social reformer, Nobel Peace Prize laureate
