A Girl Who Travels.

“A girl who travels will need someone that questions her, not too little, and not too much. She’ll need someone to read her, but also really listen to her. Because she’ll want to do the same. She’ll want a person that shares an interest but at the same time stays genuine to who they are. Not drown in a puddle of narcissism. And not drown in a lake of fascination.”

-Lauren Klarfeld, writer. 

If you are successful…

“If you are successful, it is because somewhere, sometime, someone gave you a life or an idea that started you in the right direction. Remember also that you are indebted to life until you help some less fortunate person, just as you were helped.”

– Melinda Gates (Philanthropist)

“Whatever you want in life, other people are going to want it too. Believe in yourself enough to accept the idea that you have an equal right to it.”

“Sea lo que sea que quieras en la vida, otra gente también lo quiere. Cree en ti misma lo suficiente como para aceptar la idea de que tú tienes el mismo derecho a ello.”

– Diane Sawyer, Journalist.

Persistence.

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

– Calvin Coolidge (30th US president, 1872-1933)

The key players…

The key players who could bring immigration reform to the front line right now are the high tech moguls. Money moves mountains.

The problem is that their agenda focuses on foreign talent and not on the millions of undocumented immigrants who do not work on high tech. Yet, these millions of so called unskilled workers do move mountains at a fundamental level of the US economy, and one may argue that it all depends on how the word “skill” is defined.

Comprehensive Immigration Reform must  include the interests of both foreign talent and other workers, high tech or not.

If Mark Zuckerberg and other high tech moguls can fully assimilate this, they will set a precedent, moving forward and setting free the elephant in the room in a way that politicians and immigrant rights groups have not been able to, trapped in their own games.

Culture is all that we create.

Culture is all that we create, every moment. Art is an expression of the self that cannot be qualified as high or low, good or bad, for it reflects a perspective. Having “culture” It is not about knowing who did what, or what is that form, thing, and movement called. It is about becoming an ocean of knowledge and experiences. Furthermore, having a life full of culture and art is not only about visiting museums, seeing monuments, or buying exotic pieces of art; for if any of that does not transform you into a more understanding, caring person, if it does not cause you to feel your emotions, if it does not move you to love humanity more and to hope for peace and equality, or to understand that nobody, as a whole, isn’t better or worst than anybody else…Culture and art become a thing, a label, a souvenir, an ornament that wraps up class and money. Travel is that special opportunity to experience different ways of life, to set foot into unknown lands, to immerse in other cultures, to witness how people act and behave, and what conventions they follow.

Culture is all what humanity creates. Art is one of many expressions from humanity, Travel is the bridge to a human being’s expansion.

Each one of us can create and express, and we do so inevitably many times in our life without even knowing it. Through art, travel, and culture our passing by this world get bigger, more solid, better lived, for us and for others.
Culture and Art and Travel.
