Life is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley. But always, if we have faith, a door will open for us, not perhaps one that we ourselves would ever have thought of but one that will ultimately prove good for us.

- A. J. Cronin

Then move toward, not away from, the groups that make you uncomfortable. In a funny, impassioned, important talk, she shows us how.
