A Quote by Lewis Thomas on change, evolution, individuality, literature, meditation, music, people, play, poetry, society, and understanding

We pass the word around; we ponder how the case is put by different people, we read the poetry; we meditate over the literature; we play the music; we change our minds; we reach an understanding. Society evolves this way, not by shouting each other down, but by the unique capacity of unique, individual human beings to comprehend each other.

Lewis Thomas (1913 - 1993)
