Things I enjoyed in August 2020

Quotes

Daryl David collected over the years a lot of racist items, while he convinced dozens of Ku Klux Clan members to leave the clan:

People always say to me, Daryl how can you have this stuff? Why don‘t you burn it? As shameful as it is, you don’t burn our history, regardless, the good, the bad, the ugly. And the Ku Klux Klan is as American as baseball, apple pie, and Chevrolet.

Diogenes Laërtius, Lives of the Eminent Philosophers

If you control language, you control thought.

George Orwell

The fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascists.

Unknown

Nothing happens to you. It happens through you.

Ben Ichinose

Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response.

Viktor Frankl
