October Empathy

  • "What is real to me is the power of our awareness when we are focused on something beyond ourselves...Our ability to shift our perceptions and seek creative alternatives to the conundrums of modernity is in direct proportion to our empathy. Can we imagine, witness, and ultimately feel the suffering of another?"
    —Terry Tempest Williams, 2011 MSU Friends of Stegner Lecture Series
  • "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
    —Maya Angelou, one of America's greatest voices of contemporary African-American literature, in addition to being a celebrated poet, memoirist, educator, historian, filmmaker and civil rights activist, recipient of the MSU Presidential Medal for Global Leadership in 2011
