And that marks Democrats’ first job in this new era: We will stand up to bigotry.  There is no compromise here.  In all its forms, we will fight back against attacks on Latinos, African Americans, women, Muslims, immigrants, disabled Americans  —  on anyone.  Whether Donald Trump sits in a glass tower or sits in the White House, we will not give an inch on this, not now, not ever.
— Senator Elizabeth Warren

Perhaps the logical question to ask at this point is: Why Go?  The answer is that when a man has been there and undergone the baptism of solitude he can’t help himself.  Once he has been under the spell of the vast, luminous, silent country, no other place is quite strong enough for him, no other surroundings can provide the supremely satisfying sensation of existing in the midst of something that is absolute.  He will go back, whatever the cost in comfort and money, for the absolute has no price.

From his book: “Their Heads are Green and Their Hands are Blue: Scenes from the Non-Christian World
