Quotes About Shteyngart

"Lets start with my surname: Shteyngart. A German name whose insane Sovietized spelling, eye-watering bunching of consonants (just one i between the h and t and you got some pretty nice "Shit" there), and overall unattractiveness has cost me a lot of human warmth. "Mr., uh, I cant pronounce this … Shit … Shit … Shitfart?" the sweet Alabama girl at reception giggles. "Is, uh, a single bed okay for you?" What do you think, honey, I want to say. Do you think a Shitfart gets to share a bed?" - Author: Gary Shteyngart

Quotes About Following Blindly

"Im reading a book that actually scares me. It is not a form of fear that is embodied in some irrational phobia of a specific object, living being, or an event, but a fear of words, of actions of beings towards one another, how one word or command wrongly distributed can destroy someone or many people. How following blindly into the paths of something you truly believe is right without any rationale to back it up or the thought of the consequences it can cause may blindly lead others to their death. How in that moment, thinking youre doing it for the right reasons, you ignore all the laws of nature that tell you that human life is sacred and that no one mans ideals can ever compensate for its loss. To have the power to destroy and cause suffering without much care. This is a fear of what humanity is turning into, and such a future truly scares me." - Author: Aliaa El Nashar

Quotes About Left Friends

"no, no, its not all random, if it really was all random, the universe would abandon us completely. and the universe doesnt. it takes care of its most fragile creations in ways we cant see. like with parents who adore you blindly. and a big sister who feels guilty for being human over you. and a little gravelly-voiced kid whose friends have left him over you. and even a pink-haired girl who carries your picture in her wallet. maybe it is a lottery, but the universe makes it all even out in the end. the universe takes care of all its birds." - Author: R.J. Palacio

Quotes About Renegade

"But artists arent the only marginalized folks controlling real estate. Think about the colonizing role that wealthy white gay men have played in communities of color; theyre often the first group to gentrify poor and working-class neighborhoods. Harlem is a good example. Gays have moved in and driven up rents, as have renegade young white students, who want to be cool and hip. This is colonization, post-colonial-style. After all, the people who are "sent back" to recover the territory are always those who dont mind associating with the colored people! And its a double bind, because some of these people could be allies. Some gay white men are proactive about racism, even while being entrepreneurial. But in the end, they take spaces, redo them, sell them for a certain amount of money, while the people who have been there are displaced. And in some cases, the people of color who are there are perceived as enemies by white newcomers." - Author: Bell Hooks
