"If you want to communicate with people, you have to work at it all the time, every waking minute. You have to work at it really hard, because many people are afraid. If you think you've done enough when you do 50 percent of the work, that won't make it, because to touch some people you may have to do 100 percent of the work. You can't ever say, 'Well, I've tried hard enough.' You have to keep trying and keep on trying, remembering that folks really do want to be touched. They really do want to be communicated with."
Stephen Gaskin, An Out In My Heart, p. 110
