Men and Women
Question: What should every man know about women?
Lisa Witter: I’m not sure it’s how much what I wish men knew about women that they don’t, I think men can do a better job of really listening to women. I think a lot of times, you know, there’s an old Chinese saying called “Ting” and it means to listen with your heart, your ear and your mind and I think sometimes when people listen they don’t listen with their full selves, you know, this is what emotional intelligence is all about and I think women give a lot of, you know, something like 70% of communications is non verbal and that can be completely irrational to some people like “Tell me exactly what you wanna say.” So I think if men would listen with their heads, heart and mind altogether, I think they’d have better relationships with, you know, their partners, their mothers, whoever it is. But I also think that the world would be a much better place.
Lisa Witter advises men to listen with their full selves.

For Damien Echols, tattoos are part of his existential armor.
- In prison Damien Echols was known by his number SK931, not his name, and had his hair sheared off. Stripped of his identity, the only thing he had left was his skin.
- This is why he began tattooing things that are meaningful to him — to carry a "suit of armor" made up the images of the people and objects that have significance to him, from his friends to talismans.
- Echols believes that all places are imbued with divinity: "If you interact with New York City as if there's an intelligence behind... then it will behave towards you the same way."
