"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?"    - Jesus ; Matthew 6.28-30


"Romanticism cultivated a reverence for the individual. It eschewed the Enlightenment focus on universals for a focus on particularities. The romantic movement highlighted the differences, as opposed to the similarities, between peoples."    - Kelly Douglas Brown ; Stand Your Ground; Black Bodies and the Justice of God (p. 16)


"'Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind.' 'And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that make one circle.' In our quest to make sense of the miracle of our lives we, at some point, consciously or otherwise, make a choice . . .  To say that we believe in compassionate action is to say that we define our meaning in terms not of what we can accomplish for ourselves, but of what we can accomplish with and for others. And we welcome all, all whose spiritual paths have brought them here, to strive for a life built on compassionate action."    - Steven Greenebaum ; The Interfaith Alternative: Embracing Spiritual Diversity


"Human beings are made for each other and no people can realize their full humanity except as they participate in its realization for others."    - God of the Oppressed ; James H. Cone


"Do not get any gold or silver or copper to take with you in your belts—no bag for the journey or extra shirt or sandals or a staff, for the worker is worth his keep. Whatever town or village you enter, search there for some worthy person and stay at their house until you leave. As you enter the home, give it your greeting. If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you."    - Jesus ; Matthew 10.9-15


"Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."    - Jesus ; Matthew 8.20


"So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the gentiles run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."    - Jesus ; Matthew 6.31-34


"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"    - Jesus ; Matthew 6.25-27
