Fantastic book 📙

If adults commit adultery, do infants commit infantry? If olive oil is made from olives, what do they make baby oil from? a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian consume? A writer is someone who writes. But fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce, hammers don't ham...If the plural of tooth is teeth, shouldn't the plural of booth be beeth? If they wrote a letter, perhaps they also bote their tongue.

"Lo esencial es valorar positivamente el respeto y la diferencia, no como un mal menor y un hecho inevitable, sino como lo que enriquece la vida e impulsa la creación y el pensamiento, como aquello sin lo cuál una imaginaria comunidad de los justos cantaría el eterno hosanna del aburrimiento satisfecho" Etanislao Zuleta

La imaginación es el amor : el vínculo entre lo visible y lo realmente existente. Imaginar es estar atento a lo que hay, buscar el lazo entre las cosas, reconocer y desbrozar los caminos que llevan de una a otra, y abrir caminos diferentes, que lleven de otra a otra. Es moverse a través de las cosas y con ellas: vinculandolas, vinculándose.

"Il reste, bien sûr, quelques menus faits qui résistent. Savoir l'invention de l'arithmétique et de la géométrie par les Egyptiens. Savoir la dëcouverte de l'astronomie par les Assyriennes. Savoir la naissance de la chimie chez les Arabes. Savoir l'apparition du rationalisme au sein de l'islam a une époque où la pensée occidentale avait l'allure furieusemet pré logique." Aimé Césaire

Americanah | Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

“If you don't understand, ask questions. If you're uncomfortable about asking questions, say you are uncomfortable about asking questions and then ask anyway. It's easy to tell when a question is coming from a good place. Then listen some more. Sometimes people just want to feel heard. Here's to possibilities of friendship and connection and understanding.”

― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Americanah

“Racism should never have happened and so you don't get a cookie for reducing it.”

“Academics were not intellectuals; they were not curious, they built their stolid tents of specialized knowledge and stayed securely in them.”
― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Americanah
