“Too many young folk have addiction to superficial things and not enough conviction for substantial things like justice, truth, and love.” – Cornel West
The only beef I have with this quote is that I don’t think it’s just the “young folk” who have an addiction to superficial things. I’m pretty sure the quest for “more”, “better”, and “the best” does not discriminate with age. (And, I guess I actually have beef with two things about this quote. Is he really saying young people don’t have conviction about LOVE?! Has he ever met a young person in love? Now they have conviction.)
What do you think? Do you agree or disagree with this quote?
