And yet we still have to be taught to look, and to tell our stories. …Despite the utter absence of us, it’s still an internal revolution to say wait a minute, we are not only worthy of great art, but the source of great art.

The really important kind of freedom involves attention and awareness and discipline, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them over and over in myriad petty, unsexy ways everyday.
That is real freedom. That is being educated, and understanding how to think.
"This is Water" - David Foster Wallace (via themedicalchronicles)
