Xenophile

"Xenophilia isn't just codified in our metaphysics. Biology suggests that it is rooted in our DNA."     
-Paul Salopek


Love what is different. Let the differences enrich your lives. For our world is constructed not of separations, but from a continuous cultural tapestry woven on a fabric of land and sea, circling the sun in a vast solar system, within a potentially infinite universe. 


What might you love that you didn't know you could?

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion." -Nelson Mandela


"Strong people stand up for themselves. Stronger people stand up for others."
