As a public service, I share with you this NY Times op-ed by Brian Morton. Now, please emend as needed all second-hand proclamations and attributions. Misquotations that push a scrubbed-down, feel-good message miss the point of truly complex or truly good ideas. Not long ago I attended a lecture by Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mohandas Gandhi. Not only did the flyers for the lecture have printed on them the misguided, and misquoted, statement, “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” but when asked by a young boy in the audience what his favorite Gandhi saying is, Arun himself reiterated it. I hope this drives home the importance of consulting primary sources.
