A quote from Julia Alvarez


“Reading and thoughtfulness and openness are the best way, I should think, to begin to address the richness that is in each of us.”–Julia Alvarez



  1. That quote reminds me of a written statement postulated by founding father James Madison-“the increase and diffusion of knowledge dissolves fear and tyranny”. Thomas Jefferson wrote-“enlighten the people generally and tyranny and oppression of the body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day”. Knowledge can breed openness and thoughtfulness should it be employed in the affirmative direction.
