Until the lion has his historian, the hunter will always be the hero.

African Proverb 

This proverb exists in different forms in many parts of Africa

"Until lions start writing down their own stories, the hunters will always be the heroes" (Kenya and Zimbabwe).

I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’

Happy 7th birthday, Deathly Hallows!

You did not understand what I am. I am love. I am pleasure, I am essence, I am an idiot, I am an alcoholic, I am tenacious, I am a painter. I am simply I am…You are a shit.

Este es “El reloj del sur”, así lo ha bautizado Bolivia, país que lo ha puesto en el edificio del congreso y lo piensa poner en otros lugares con el fin de mostrar a su pueblo que las cosas se pueden hacer diferente, solo es cuestión de ser creativos y pensar mas allá.

Take 9-11. That means something in the United States. The “world changed” after 9-11. Well, do a slight thought experiment. Suppose that on 9-11 the planes had bombed the White House, suppose they’d killed the president, established a military dictatorship, quickly killed thousands, tortured tens of thousands more, set up a major international terror center that was carrying out assassinations, overthrowing governments all over the place, installing other dictatorships, and drove the country into one of the worst depressions in its history and had to call on the state to bail them out. Suppose that had happened? It did happen. On the first 9-11 in 1973. Except we were responsible for it, so it didn’t happen. That’s Allende’s Chile. You can’t imagine the media talking about this.
