worth the keeping

“It can be safe to say that when we learned to speak to, and listen to, rather than strike or be struck by, our fellow human beings, we found something worth keeping alive, worth the possessing, for the rest of time.  Might it possibly have been the other way around – that the promptings of friendship guided us into learning to express ourselves, teaching ourselves, between us, a language to keep it by?”                – Eudora Welty –




"A word is a bridge thrown between myself and an other - a territory shared by both" - M. Bakhtin
