Hospitality does not seek power over others. Cruelty does. Cruelty deliberately causes harm, especially by crushing a person's self-respect ... The opposite of cruelty is hospitality, a sharing of power.

~ Richard M. Gula ~

from his book
To Walk Together Again

I'd say the orange boys do a pretty good job of sharing power with me...most of the time. We all live together quite hospitably.

I never thought of hospitality as a sharing of power. I like that.
