Five Quotes from Dorothy Day



“I have long since come to believe that people never mean half of what they say, and that it is best to disregard their talk and judge only their actions.”

“The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us?”

“The legal battle against segregation is won, but the community battle goes on.”

“We have all known the long loneliness, and we have found that the answer is community.”

“Words are as strong and powerful as bombs, as napalm.”
