Ramadan 2017: Moon Boots for the Brain

"I am not sad, he would repeat to himself over and over, I am not sad. As if he might one day convince himself. Or fool himself. Or convince others--the only thing worse than being sad is for others to know that you are sad. I am not sad. I am not sad. Because his life had unlimited potential for happiness, insofar as it was an empty white room." | Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer

"Since mankind's dawn, a handful of oppressors have accepted responsibility over our lives that we should have accepted for ourselves. By doing so, they took our power. By doing nothing, we gave it away. We've seen where their way leads, through camps and wars, towards the slaughterhouse." V for Vendetta by Alan Moore
