“Be very appreciative of what is different in your thinking that has value, because we need the outsiders. Outsiders may bring the value that the insiders don’t see. It’s invisible. My work sometimes is to make visible what is right under people’s noses. And they go, ‘Are you kidding? I didn’t see it.’ I go, ‘I know. Now what? Now that you see it, you can’t unsee it.’” — Dorothy Siminovitch
