I'm just trying to cultivate courage.

  • Ezra Klein, Editor in Chief of Vox.com in Esquire’s The Mentorship Project, a series of fifty interviews with men about the mentors who made them who they are today. (via futurejournalismproject)
  • "My brother, in almost every conversation we’ve ever had about work, he’s always said to me, “You have to be humble.” I mean, the job of a reporter is kind of omnidirectional self-abasement, right? You’re going to experts who know more than you about the thing in its kind of structural terms. You’re going to people who are being affected by it in ways that you aren’t, so they know more about how it feels and how it’s working in a way, and certainly their lives, than you do. You’re going to an editor who has a better sense than you do for story structure and how things need to be if they’re going to work. You’re going to readers who ultimately are the judge of your success. I mean it’s a funny position in that way, because you really need to be able to learn from all kinds of different people."

  • "[F]rom now on why not agree that science and the oil industry both have opinions. Oh, and before you tell your kids to wash their hands after they take a shit so they don’t spread disease, maybe we should spend an equal amount of time hearing from Big Fecal."
  • "This is a subtle truth: whatever you love, you are."
  • Martin Luther King Jr. (via quantumfemme)

  • "I’ve told the kids in the ghettos that violence won’t solve their problems, but then they ask me, and rightly so; “Why does the government use massive doses of violence to bring about the change it wants in the world?” After this I knew that I could no longer speak against the violence in the ghettos without also speaking against the violence of my government"
  • When people say they are not feminists because *they love men**

    Congratulations on missing the point and reproducing old stereotypes of feminists.
