"I pretty much only understand what the moderator is saying" Dec 26, 2015 11:03PM

“The classroom was a jail of other people’s interests. The library was open, unending, free.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates

John Dewey
“We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience.”
John Dewey

Susan Orlean
“In Senegal, the polite expression for saying someone died is to say his or her library has burned. When I first heard the phrase, I didn’t understand it, but over time I came to realize it was perfect. Our minds and souls contain volumes inscribed by our experiences and emotions; each individual’s consciousness is a collection of memories we’ve cataloged and stored inside us, a private library of a life lived.”
Susan Orlean, The Library Book

Le Ly Hayslip
“In the West, for example, people believe they must 'pursue happiness' as if it were some kind of a flighty bird that is always out of reach. In the East, we believe we are born with happiness and one of life's important tasks, my mother told me, is to protect it.”
Le Ly Hayslip, When Heaven and Earth Changed Places: A Vietnamese Woman's Journey from War to Peace

“Words: with them you can do and undo as you please.”
Elena Ferrante, The Story of a New Name
