Born this day in 1914, Barbara Ward was a British economist and early proponent of sustainable development. Corita included Ward’s sobering words in her 1982 serigraph, “community.”

Celebrating Daniel Berrigan, born this day in 1921.
Berrigan was a Jesuit priest, anti-war activist, poet, and great friend of Corita’s. Although he passed away last year, his words live on in 19 of Corita’s serigraphs.
“The world is perhaps too large for men today to cope with. We say "yes” to it as best we can and turn again in our unrisen flesh and minds, to the unfinished business of living.“

that man loves, 1967

Happy birthday to Soren Kierkegaard, born this day in 1813.
Included in a detail of Corita’s 1966 work, “(tame) hummed hopefully to others,” is the following quote by the existentialist philosopher:

“Deep within every man there lies the dread of being alone in the world, forgotten by God, overlooked among the tremendous household of millions. That fear is kept away by looking upon all those about one who are bound to one as friends and family; but the dread is nonetheless there and one hardly dares think of what would happen to one if all the rest were taken away.
