Quotable: Laila Lalami

As a child you grow up with idealist ideas of doing the right thing; save the whales, etc. This doesn’t last for everybody when reality of life hits. Though a few people in the world are commendable for living up to their ideals and keep on beating up the system. Sometimes with success. For us the majority this quotation from Secret Son is so true. It’s a part of growing up you could say.

“You know what they say: If you’re not an idealist at twenty, you have no heart, and if you’re an idealist at thirty, you have no brain.”

From: Secret Son by Laila Lalami
