We cannot live in a world that is interpreted for us by others. An interpreted world is not a hope. Part of the terror is to take back our own listening. To use our own voice. To see our own light.

— Hildegard of Bingen, 1098-1179, from book “How to Think Like a Woman – Four Women Philosophers Who Taught Me How to Love the Life of the mind” by Regan Penaluna
