“What is more central to our freedom than this ability to distance ourselves from oppressive givens in order to reinterpret them, to give them meaning and to digest them so as to live them out with dignity? Without this ability to empathize with situations different from our own, could we love the otherness of the other with the necessary respect? To say nothing of the most striking aspect of our imagination: creativity, a gift that makes us for all our weakness, just lower than the angels."
— Wheaton College Professor Leland Ryken
