Unique manifestations

Artdog Quote of the Week

“Other cultures are not failed attempts at being like you.”

There are people in this world who don’t see it that way. They can’t look beyond their own frame of reference, and they resist seeing their own privilege, which simultaneously insulates them and quarantines them from full participation with the rest of the world.

Sadly, they miss more than they know.

I hope you’ll also check out Wade Davis’s website. Davis is an anthropologist and author who works with National Geographic, so he really knows what he’s talking about in this quote.
