“Say who you are… in your life and in your work. Tell someone out there who is lost, someone not yet born, someone who won’t be born for 500 years…. you’ll help that person be less lonely in their world because…”

Art of Quotation

“Say who you are, really say it in your life and in your work. Tell someone out there who is lost, someone not yet born, someone who won’t be born for 500 years.

Your writing will be a record of your time. It can’t help but be that. But more importantly, if you’re honest about who you are, you’ll help that person be less lonely in their world because that person will recognize him or herself in you and that will give them hope.”

“Whatever you do with your life-whatever you end up achieving or not achieving-the great gift you have in you to give to the world is the gift of who you alone are;

Jan 15, 2018: ” The saving of our world from pending doom will come… through the creative maladjustment of a nonconforming minority. “

Art of Quotation

“This hour in history needs a dedicated circle of transformed nonconformists.

Our planet teeters on the brink of annihilation; dangerous passions of pride, hatred, and selfishness are enthroned in our lives; and men do reverence before false gods of nationalism and materialism.

The saving of our world from pending doom will come,

not through the complacent adjustment of the conforming majority, but

through the creative maladjustment of a nonconforming minority.”

Martin Luther King, Jr., activist, religious figure, advocate, civil rights

“Bogus news isn’t the real problem: The problem is that we undervalue the type of critical thinking needed to spot it.”

Art of Quotation

“Bogus news isn’t the real problem: The problem is that we undervalue the type of critical thinking needed to spot it.”

Fake news is running rampant on the internet, but blaming social media sites like Facebook for not filtering it out doesn’t address the larger issue at hand. Bogus news isn’t the real problem: The problem is that we undervalue the type of critical thinking needed to spot it.
