Back in April, I shared a short quote by Pearl S. Buck that I'd found in a dictionary.
Today, following links around, I stumbled on a new blog, Soli Libri, that has the quote in context. The longer quote is much better than the snippet shared in the dictionary. It's a great appeal for recognition that "there is a sacred quality of life which none of us can fathom. All peoples feel it, for in all societies it is considered a sin for one human being to kill another for a reason of his own." The blogger also notes that Buck's brand of feminism was quite a different thing from what feminism has become. (And how!)
Update: Amanda at Wittingshire has more.
