Chris Rock
“You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named "Bush", "Dick", and "Colin." Need I say more?”

Laura Ingalls Wilder, Writings to Young Women from Laura Ingalls Wilder: On Wisdom and Virtues

“Personne n'est capable réellement de penser à personne, fût-ce dans le pire des malheurs. Car penser réellement à quelqu'un, c'est y penser minute après minute, sans être distrait par rien, ni les soins du ménage, ni la mouche qui vole, ni les repas, ni une démangeaison. Mais il y a toujours des mouches et des démangeaisons. C'est pourquoi la vie est difficile à vivre.”
Albert Camus, The Plague

Debatrayee Banerjee
“Little Moments that bloom in Christmas hue.

How beautiful the night shines in the hue of dreams, as if lulling along a distant breeze, wrapped in a cold warmth of a solitary winter's eve!

To me, Christmas is always about a bunch of happy moments, simple yet ornate in a colour of joy, something that connects our hearts to all that is pure and pristine, all that is beautifully simple and soulfully happy.

And if we look closely, we can find those moments, every day in our regular lives, from sipping on our early morning coffee to munching on our midnight snack, from taking a moment to gaze at the sunset to simply sitting silent listening to our soul, beautiful unfiltered unadulterated moments that often go unnoticed yet remain forever warmed up in the cold embrace of our heart, frozen in a niche of a dream called Life.

After all, Life is a beautiful dream.

La vie est un beau rêve

Stay in Love.”
Debatrayee Banerjee

George Saunders
“But it came as a surprise to me, and I found it interesting, when this nice and presumably liberal woman suddenly lurched off toward, I guess, a sort of suburban fascism. In the end, she pulls herself back, but we might imagine other people who wouldn’t be able to, whether because of their disposition or the extremity of whatever it was they felt victimized by. What turns a person into an extremist? It often seems to originate with some small thing that happened to her personally, which then gets projected out onto the culture.”
George Saunders

Morgan Harper Nichols
“Peace is the river in the desert, not on the other side of it.
Today I am still seeking that river. And not just a river far off somewhere that I must arrive at, but the river that runs wild and free in my inner life. The river that carves its way through my need for understanding and reminds me to slow down and breathe.”
Morgan Harper Nichols, Peace Is a Practice: An Invitation to Breathe Deep and Find a New Rhythm for Life

Rick Pryll
“[Neruda’s] work captures the everyday life of regular people in the Little Quarter. Completely changed but unchanged, its cobble and brick outlines, the colorful contents whirling in a time-lapse blur.”
