AFORISMI MEMORABILI – QUOTES TO REMEMBER

Uno stupido che cammina va più lontano di dieci intellettuali seduti.
(Jacques Séguéla)

I NOSTRI AFORISMI – OUR QUOTES

 

La “volontà di potenza” renzista più che una degna pulsione infinita verso il rinnovamento, pare una sub-categoria delle filosofie motivazionali new-age in virtù delle quali se “thoughts become things” (i pensieri diventano cose) perché le parole non possono diventare fatti? Detto altrimenti, sembrerebbe che sia perfetta convinzione della corte renzista e di Matteo Renzi in particolare, che basti affermare l’essenza della realtà (pardon, di una data realtà, quella di cui sono convinti e di cui intendono convincere il popolo italiano) per definire quest’ultima. Da qui a venirne fuori con le anelanti e usate dichiarazioni che hanno costellato questi ultimi 30 mesi di laissez-faire politico, economico, amministrativo, il passo è breve: “Il Jobs Act è stato un successo”, “L’Expo è stato un successo”, “La Riforma costituzionale cambierà l’Italia”, “L’Italia è ripartita”… e in ultimo proprio l’odierno “Abbiamo dimostrato di non essere il problema”.

(Dal “Diario dai giorni del golpe bianco” di Rina Brundu, prossimamente).

girl-risingFor fans of inspirational nonfiction such as I Am Malala and Chelsea Clinton’s It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going!, here is a full-color book inspired by the powerful documentary film Girl Rising about educating girls across the globe.

Worldwide, over 62 million girls are not in school.
But one girl with courage is a revolution.

Girl Rising, a global campaign for girls’ education, created a film that chronicled the stories of nine girls in the developing world, allowing viewers the opportunity to witness how education can break the cycle of poverty.

Now, award-winning author Tanya Lee Stone deftly uses new research to illuminate the dramatic facts behind the film, focusing both on the girls captured on camera and many others. She examines barriers to education in depth—early child marriage and childbearing, slavery, sexual trafficking, gender discrimination, and poverty—and shows how removing these barriers means not only a better life for girls, but safer, healthier, and more prosperous communities.

With full-color photos from the film, infographics, and a compelling narrative, Girl Rising will inspire readers of all ages to join together in a growing movement to help change the world.

Praise for the film:
“The documentary every mother, sister, daughter, should see, as well as the men who love and support them.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Delivers . . . tangible hope that the world can be healed in a better future.” —Meryl Streep

Girl Rising stands as a testament to the power of information.” —The Los Angeles Times
