Thought for the day - “Too Asian to be American, too American to be Asian?”

"What I had wanted to impart was my conviction that a plurality of cultures and contexts, while initially confusing, brings the world closer, since it is already very much in us. In my own life as a writer, I like to think that I can navigate cultural rivers with distinct and powerful currents, rivers at once glorious and dark, smooth and tricky, with rapids, unexpected twists and beautiful vistas, with benign and dangerous creatures." says Luis H.
