Quotations: Part Nine

I’ve been sharing quotations on Facebook and then recapping on this blog. These quotations typically come from my own reading/learning/listening and therefore have significant meaning in my life (or at least to a life I aspire to).

.

Spend the afternoon, you can’t take it with you. – Annie Dillard

.

The illusion that we understand the past fosters overconfidence in our ability to predict the future. – Daniel Kahneman

.

A reliable way to make people believe in falsehoods is frequent repetition, because familiarity is not easily distinguished from truth. – Daniel Kahneman


I would beg to disagree, but begging disagrees with me . . .
Kick me under the table all you want, I won’t shut up. – Fiona Apple

.

Myriad forms of injustice became visible in ways that made it seem normal to recognize them and easy to forget by what toil they became visible (which always raises the question of what else we do not yet see, and for what failings future eras will rebuke us). – Rebecca Solnit

.

I think it’s tragic that people still have to march, protest, and fight for rights that I’ve had for over sixty years. – (I said that.)
