We sometimes just speak without communicating anything. Overwhelmed by duties, worn out, always in a mad rush, consumed by the daily grind, stressed out, harried, bored with this lackluster drudgery, caught up in this search for ideals, which are rather mere attempts to survive—sometimes we are no longer able to recognize, among all of life’s challenges, the power of words to overcome our limitations and set us free from our fears.

Carmen Firan, from “Habitus”
