  • "The hardest thing about democracy is the boring and irritating process of listening to people you don't agree with, which is tolerable only when each side strives not to hurt the other's feelings." -- Mary Karr
  • "There are many reasons for our troubles. But the deepest reason is inequality: the forms of political, cultural, and economic polarization that have been widening, not narrowing for decades. Inequality, like slavery, is a chain that binds at both ends." -- Jill Lepore
