“What’s wrong with the world,” Nana explained, “is that people stopped listening to their hearts… “Not everybody stopped listening,” she continued, “but enough people did to make a difference. We’ve got so much in this life that all we know how to do is want more. So we concentrate on the wrong things–things we can see–as being the measure of a person. We think if we can win something big or buy something snazzy it’ll make us more than we are. Our hearts know that’s not true, but the eyes are powerful. It’s easier to fix on what we can see than listen to the still, small voice of a whispering heart.” Nana turned her eyes on me like a vet looking for fleas: “A heart will say amazing things if it’s given half a chance.” ~ Joan Bauer, Squashed
