Berry Wendell: eredità

We can learn about it from exceptional people of our own culture, and from other cultures less destructive than ours. I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children.

Non ereditiamo la terra dai nostri avi, la prendiamo in prestito dai nostri figli.

Wendell Berry, 1971 (Fonte: Quote Investigator)


Osare: il progresso si ottiene solo così.
Oser: le progrès est à ce prix.
V. Hugo, Les misérables

We should be teaching our children the basic up-to-date, fact-based framework—life on the four levels and in the four regions—and training them to use Factfulness rules of thumb—the bullet points from the end of each chapter. This would enable them to put the news from around the world in context and spot when the media, activists, or salespeople are triggering their dramatic instincts with overdramatic stories. These skills are part of the critical thinking that is already taught in many schools. They would protect the next generation from a lot of ignorance.
H. Rosling, Factfulness
