“You Already Know Enough.”

A quick apologetic note before today’s (half-)post: If ya’ll received an email from Chickpeas & Change with an unfinished blog post that linked to a “Page Not Found,” I’m very sorry! I accidentally pressed the “Publish” instead of “Save Draft” button…oops…

Welcome to the week, everyone! Unfortunately, I’m not able to provide you with a full post today, since I was fortunate enough to spend the weekend in Brooklyn with my best friend whom I haven’t seen in three years (such an adorable reunion, if I do say so myself). I do, however, want to share a quote that has recently been ringing in my head. Hopefully it resonates with you, and if so, I would love to hear your thoughts and discuss with you in the comments (maybe even in a future post!).

“You already know enough. So do I. It is not knowledge we lack. What is missing is the courage to understand what we know and to draw conclusions.”

~Sven Lindqvist in “Exterminate All the Brutes”: One Man’s Odyssey Into the Heart of Darkness and the Origins of European Genocide (The New Press, 2007)

In solidarity, Ali.

    Love this quote, Ali. I’d love for you to revisit it in a later post. Sounds like you had a blast in Brooklyn, so jealous you got to spend some time up there!

      Glad it resonated with you, Rachel! I have to flesh out my thoughts a bit more concretely before I write anything on the blog, but I’m sure it will at least subconsciously inform my writing. 🙂
