QUOTA of QUOTES “The virus is going to be around for a long time. We can learn to live with the virus. We can learn to live with it in a way that won’t kill thousands of Americans every day, won’t shut down our healthcare system.”—Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University’s School of Public Health, who was recently appointed as White House Covid-19 response coordinator. (Nieman Reports)






“We are Americans, and all we hope is to be recognized as that, to finally give meaning to the lives we have lived here so far.”—Athulya Rajakumar, 23, a ‘dreamer’ who aged out of her mother’s green card application when she turned 21, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship and Border Safety.

“My main focus is to help strengthen hearts—and not just physical hearts, but emotional hearts, because I think (you) can only be heart healthy if you’re taking care of your emotional  health as well.”—Shree Saini, 26, of Seattle, who survived heart surgery and severe burns from a car accident to become the first Indian-American to win Miss World America and finish as first runner-up at Miss World 2021.

“The great thing about music is that language doesn’t matter. Melody is king. You have a good melody, you might not understand a single word in that language, but that melody will be stuck in your head.”—Kush Nijhawan of Louisville, Kentucky, who performs in the cross-genre group Twinjabi with his twin brother, Neil, and blends Hindi, English and Spanish in the lyrics.
