The cost of being wrong is less than the cost of doing nothing.”

— Seth Godin (via swissmiss)

People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction. And all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!”

– Greta Thunberg

And dangerous in this respect: that confronted with the impossibility of remaining faithful to one’s beliefs, and the equal impossibility of becoming free of them, one can be driven to the most inhuman excesses.”

— James Baldwin, Stranger in the Village (via Erica Avey)
