Different Doorsteps


“The artist’s world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep.”

Paul Strand



As the traveler who has once been from home is wiser than he who has never left his own doorstep, so a knowledge of one other culture should sharpen our ability to scrutinize more steadily, to appreciate lovingly, our own”

Margaret Mead



“To consider persons and events and situations only in the light of their effect upon myself is to live on the doorstep of hell”

Thomas Merton
