“It’s easy for the victims to say they forgive. The guilty cannot forgive themselves.” —

Deborah Feldman, a former Hasidic Jew, relaying the words of her German boyfriend’s mother about the Holocaust (I Need to Talk About Anne Frank - The Moth)

I don’t completely love this author after reading her book Unorthodox, but she speaks well and this Moth story is worth listening to.

A Q&A column in the Wall Street Journal rubbed me the wrong way this morning:

Dear Dan, 
One of the not very well-paid cleaners working in my office sometimes chats with me about her life, including her family’s financial difficulties. Last week, she told me that she had just got a puppy. I was shocked that she would take on the responsibility of caring for a pet when she doesn’t have the money to take care of her family. How could someone in her situation be so careless and irresponsible with money? —Andrea

I could only think of this photo and Facebook comment from Humans of New York last month that gave me a strong dose of perspective and compassion. 
My views on dogs and money seem to have shifted as of late.
