Favorite Intimate Connections Quotes

1. "Only by acknowledging the full extent of slavery's full grip on U.S. Society - its intimate connections to present day wealth and power, the depth of its injury to black Americans, the shocking nearness in time of its true end - can we reconcile the paradoxes of current American life."
Author: Douglas A. Blackmon
2. "One time I listened to Farmer give a talk on HIV to a class at the Harvard School of Public Health, and in the midst of reciting data, he mentioned the Haitian phrase "looking for life, destroying life," Then he explained, "It's an expression Haitians use if a poor woman selling mangoes falls off a truck and dies." I felt as if for that moment I could see a little way into his mind, It seemed like a place of hyperconnectivity, At moments like that, I thought that what he wanted was to erase both time and geography, connecting all parts of his life and tying them instrumentally to a world in which he saw intimate, inescapable connections between the gleaming corporate offices of Paris and New York and a legless man lying on the mud floor of a hut in the remotest part of remote Haiti. Of all the world's errors, he seemed to feel, the most fundamental was the "erasing" of people, the "hiding away" of suffering. "My big struggle is how people can not care, erase, not remember."

Today's Quote

Voi alege doar oameni care nu tind decît sa se epuizeze sau despre care am constiinta ca se epuizeaza. Atît si nimic mai mult. Nu vreau sa vorbesc pentru moment decît de o lume în care gîndurile, ca si vietile, n-au viitor. Tot ceea ce-l face pe om sa munceasca si sa se zbuciume se foloseste de speranta. Singura gîndire care nu minte este, asadar, gîndirea sterila. In lumea absurda, valoarea unei notiuni sau a unei vieti se masoara dupa gradul ei de sterilitate."
Author: Albert Camus
