Famous quotes by naomi shihab nye:

    I’m not interested in
    who suffered the most.
    I’m interested in
    people getting over it.

    I can never see fashion models,
    lean angular cheeks, strutting hips
    and blooming hair, without thinking of
    the skulls at the catacombs in Lima, Peru.
