Josh Kilmer-Purcell
“Truth isn't beauty. It isn't even always true. Truth is nothing more than consistency of message.
I learned that from advertising.”
Josh Kilmer-Purcell, The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers: An Unconventional Memoir

“Being privileged doesn't mean that you are always wrong and people without privilege are always right. It means that there is a good chance you are missing a few very important pieces of the puzzle.”
Ijeoma Oluo, So You Want to Talk About Race

“If you start buying your own bullshit, you risk becoming management material.”
Josh Kilmer-Purcell, The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers: An Unconventional Memoir

Beverly Cleary
“She was not a slowpoke grownup. She was a girl who could not wait. Life was so interesting she had to find out what happened next.”
Beverly Cleary, Ramona the Pest

W. Kamau Bell
“When art sets racism in the past, no matter how good it is, it allows white people in the audience (and others) to say to themselves "Wow! That racism sure was bad way back then!" It's what happens when people go see 12 Years a Slave. My response is always, "Yeah, you wanna know another time when racism was bad? Earlier today.”
W. Kamau Bell, The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell: Tales of a 6' 4", African American, Heterosexual, Cisgender, Left-Leaning, Asthmatic, Black and Proud Blerd, Mama's Boy, Dad, and Stand-Up Comedian
