Kingsolver: "What I want is so simple..."

Barbara kingsolver quote

My boss Jon Foley at the California Academy of Sciences shared this wonderful quote from the author Barbara Kingsolver in her book Animal Dreams, which really speaks to my condition right now:

“The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof. What I want is so simple I almost can’t say it: elementary kindness. Enough to eat, enough to go around. The possibility that kids might one day grow up to be neither the destroyers nor the destroyed. That’s about it. Right now I'm living in that hope, running down its hallway and touching the walls on both sides.”

We all could use more hope and more kindness, especially now.
