to love. to be loved. to never forget your own insignificance. to never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. to seek joy in the saddest places. to pursue beauty to its lair. to never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. to respect strength, never power. above all, to watch. to try and understand. to never look away. • The Cost of Living • Arundhati Roy
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education. • Martin Luther King, Jr.
