Intelligence is simply talking to many people

Words of Others II

I never want the world to know everything about me. I mean, that’s why I wear big, baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. Nobody can be like, ‘Oh, she’s slim-thick, she’s not slim-thick, she’s got a flat a**, she’s got a fat a**. No one can say any of that because they don’t know. - Billie Eilish in 2018 or 19

... throttling the pace of the Blood Orange project to give fans room to breathe, to crafting whole albums the public never gets to hear, to distributing them to friends on cassettes and quietly moving on. - About Dev Hynes

... Thus it should come as no surpise that Trobrianders, like people in other parts of the world, give meanings to things that make them worth more than their cost in labor and the material of which they are made. Long yams, bundles of dried banana leaves, and strings of polished red shell discs all occupy a deep and meaningful place in Trobriand life. These are the things that cross boundaries between people, that connect one villager socially and polically with another. Malinowski wondered why men give so much attention to their yam displays. Yams, we now know, are the objects that create relatedness as they cross clan boundaries, establishing long-term relationships between individuals that lead to other advantages, such as land rights, protection, assistance, and other kinds of wealth. Only from this perspective can we understand the political implications of a chief's yam house standing empty or yams becoming weapons as men measure them against each other in a fight for dominance.

We didn't love freedom enough. - Solzhenitsyn

Is there anything that you regret up to this point?

-Regrets? Of course, I have. Had I known this issue would drag out for so long, I wouldn't have come forward. If no one knew, then I could've just lived quietly. At the age of 14, when I should've been studything, I was taken away. Not being able to study is my deepest regret. If I ever got money from the Japanese government, with that money, I was going to pay for the education of the students who can't afford to do so, so they can study. That was my plan. But I'm 92 now. There is no resolution in sight.

-So if Japan admits to wrongdoing, do you have the heart to forgive?

-I do. They say 'Hate the sin, not the sinner.' This isn't something Abe did. It's what the former emperor did. ... You might be hearing this for the first time, but for me, it's so painful to talk about it. At this age, when I should be at peace the Japanese government keeps dragging out this issue. So, whenever I have to talk abou this over and over, I'm heartbroken beyond belief. - Former comfort woman Kim Bok-Dong

Las mezquitas son lugares de erudiciòn y para impartir justicia, por tanto se desarrolla en ellas tanto la vida privada como pùblica.
