Quotes

“To think deeply in our culture is to grow angry and to anger others; and if you cannot tolerate this anger, you are wasting the time you spend thinking deeply. One of the rewards of deep thought is the hot glow of anger at discovering a wrong, but if anger is taboo, thought will starve to death”

~ Jules Henry

*Aside: Methinks, I have reached the tipping point. It’s great to know that this anger welling up inside of me is attributed to thinking deeply about issues. #Angry.Ghanaian.Girl.
