— Carter G. Woodson
"Philosophers have long conceded … that every man has two educations: that which is given to him, and the other that which he gives himself. Of the two kinds the latter is by far the more desirable. Indeed all that is most worthy in man he must work out and conquer for himself. It is that which constitutes our real and best nourishment. What we are merely taught seldom nourishes the mind like that which we teach ourselves."
"We don’t live in a culture that is very sensitive to vulnerability."
"You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place…you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again."
— Azar Nafisi
Sometimes in our lives
What was never said matters,
more than what was said.
