Quotes About Through A Childs Eyes

"Two months in Shanghai, and what does she have to show for herself? She had been full of plans on the plane ride over, had studied her phrase book as if cramming for an exam, had been determined to refine her computational model with a new set of data, expecting insights and breakthroughs, plotting notes for a new article. Only the time has trickled away so quickly. She has meandered through the days chatting with James instead of gathering data. At night, she has gone out to dinners and bars. [James] Chinese has not improved; her computational model has barely been touched. She does not know what she has been doing with herself, and now an airplane six days away is waiting for her." - Author: Ruiyan Xu

Quotes About Tutsi

"In 1933-34, the Belgians conducted a census in order to issue ‘ethnic identity cards, which labelled every Rwandan as either Hutu (85%) of Tutsi (14%) or Twa (1%). The identity cards made it virtually impossible for Hutus to become Tutsis, and permitted the Belgians to perfect the administration of an apartheid system rooted in the myth of Tutsi superiority… Whatever Hutu and Tutsi identity may have stood for in the pre-colonial state no longer mattered; the Belgians had made ‘ethnicity the defining feature of Rwandan existence." - Author: Philip Gourevitch

Tener el suficiente valor para (aparentemente) hacer el juego sin traicionarse, sin perder el juicio; sin perder ese hilo casi inapresable que es el verdadero sentido, el que nadie conocía, y que nunca serviría para alimentarlo, para complacer a su familia, ni para disminuir el estruendo de las poleas, ni la claridad aterradora." - Author: Reinaldo Arenas
