"I don’t know whether Hillary Clinton’s previous books were good or bad. I didn’t read them, because I assumed they were normal politician-books.

From sex object to gritty woman: “Stock photos — generic images that appear in places like ads, billboards, magazines and blogs — reflect the culture at a moment in time.” (The New York Times)

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on how to write and how to read: “When it’s difficult, what keeps me going is the possibility of joy.” (Literary Hub)

Remembering Edith Windsor: “She lawyered up, she fought, she won, and she paved the way for legal gay marriage in every state.” (Vogue)

Do artists and designer have an obligation to be political?: “Everything that we, as culture producers, create is cultural data that others consume. Regardless of a maker’s intentions, art is political once it is available to any audience.” (Design Sponge)
