Pernicious is stronger than injurious; that which is injurious is capable of doing harm; that which is pernicious is likely to be destructive.

    There was this thing that manifested itself in the Muslim community where we had to put on this really toxic smile everywhere we went to let everyone around us know that we aren't a threat, acting is a space where I can allow the rest of myself to exist. I don't always have to be this smiley person. I can be bad, mischievous, I can be angry. It allows the rest of my humanity to thrive, which as a kid I really longed for.

  5. Socrates:

    I do nothing but go about persuading you all, old and young alike, not to take thought for your persons or your properties, but and chiefly to care about the greatest improvement of the soul.
