I use Wikipedia and Wikiquote regularly, but I really need to explore the Wikimedia Foundation's offerings in more depth!

LB: THIS * ∞

Had our art show last night. Heard a lot of praise for student talent. More than once I had to assert

"They worked really hard."

"This shows a lot of practice."

"[Visual Art Teacher] has high standards and pushes the students to reach them."

Rather than launch into a rant about education, I will say simply this:

When you praise someone - anyone - for a successful project, PLEASE praise the WORK they put into the project, including the training they went through to be able to do the work - and NOT their "talent" or "smartness" or "giftnedness".

There is a note pinned up next to the void:
"The void holds no data about you, does not wish to contact you, and does not care who you are, or what you scream."
Somehow, I find this oddly comforting. I leave, without screaming.
