Random quote of the day:

“Highlight reels are about that one person. After a barrage of highlight reels, you get the sense that you can do it without a team. But music thrived the most when groups were involved. People lose sight of that—that community makes the world run.”

Random quote of the day:

“I really want to keep my mind open to all possibilities. If I make up my mind in advance what I believe about something … I stop listening. We all stop listening once you’ve made up your mind … I want to be curious. I want to maintain my curiosity about what the answers to the question might be. And I want to hold out for the possibility that someone will surprise me.”

—Gwen Ifill, interview, Television Academy Foundation, Oct. 20, 2011

Random quote of the day:

Random quote of the day:

“Choose your leaders
with wisdom and forethought.
To be led by a coward
is to be controlled
       by all that the coward fears.
To be led by a fool
is to be led
by the opportunists
who control the fool.
To be led by a thief
is to offer up
your most precious treasures
       to be stolen.
To be led by a liar
is to ask
to be told lies.
To be led by a tyrant
is to sell yourself
and those you love
into slavery.”

—Octavia Butler, Parable of the Talents

Random quote of the day:

“But there are none so frightened, or so strange in their fear, as conquerors. They conjure phantoms endlessly, terrified that their victims will someday do back what was done to them—even if, in truth, their victims couldn’t care less about such pettiness and have moved on. Conquerors live in dread of the day when they are shown to be, not superior, but simply lucky.”

Random quote of the day:

“Disadvantaged white people are not erased by discussions of disadvantages facing people of color, just as brain cancer is not erased by talking about breast cancer. They are two different issues with two different treatments, and they require two different conversations.”
