Anaïs Nin by Irving Penn (1970) "There are two ways to reach me: by way of kisses or by way of the imagination. But there is a hierarchy: the kisses alone don’t work.” (from:” Henry and June”)

"I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humour, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming." – attributed to both Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe and Haim G. Ginott

Frightening conclusion? I am the decisive element.
