QUOTA of QUOTES “My dreams are not, and never have been, limited by the shape of the map of India, or any country. … The dream worth dreaming is to see our world moving toward a shared understanding of justice, however slowly, instead of racing away from it at the pace we are.”—Acclaimed author and activist Arundhati Roy. (CNN)








“Unfortunately, it is the natural consequence of allowing the proliferation and unregulated use of semi-automatic weapons which can be used to shoot indiscriminately into crowds and kill and maim dozens.”—Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois, issuing a statement following the July 4 shooting in Highland Park, Illinois, that claimed seven lives. (Salon.com)








“There are only TWO single moms in Congress. Retweet if you’re ready for the third.”— Tweet from Reema Rasool, a Democrat running for Congress from Long Island, New York.









“This is a dark, dark time in our country. An extremist, Republican-controlled Supreme Court has gutted Roe v. Wade, doing something truly unprecedented, which is taking away a constitutional right that has been the law of the land for over half a century.” — Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, revealing that she once had an abortion after learning that her pregnancy would be high risk. (Seattle Times)
