Naomi Klein published a short and sweet piece in The Nation with her speech at Occupy Wall Street in October 2011. I just wanted to quote my favourite part of it so it is locked into my memory bank:

There are some things that don’t matter.

  • What we wear.
  • Whether we shake our fists or make peace signs.
  • Whether we can fit our dreams for a better world into a media soundbite.

And here are a few things that do matter:

  • Our courage.
  • Our moral compass.
  • How we treat each other.
