If we did not have Covid to talk about - what would we be doing? 

Building housing for all? Free Transit? Food Courts and Arboretums? Burning Man everywhere all the time?

For decades I recalled how the middle east countries told their citizens that all their problems were from the fact Israel existed.

Seems we always gotta have a some reason we simply don't have any time to house the homeless, plant trees, build bike lanes.


Hmm, not sure you got the same thing out of that quote, as i did.

Among many other attributions, Goethe also had these...
 

Few people have the imagination for reality.
 
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
 
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
 
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
 
Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.
 
The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.
 
Love does not dominate; it cultivates.
 
Doubt can only be removed by action.
 
Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.

"The blues don't sound like sadness. It sounds like suffering through something. And suffering through something ain't sadness. It's fighting the sadness off with strength. That's what the blues sounds like. It's a tougher sound than sadness. It's the sound of carrying on somehow."
- Buddy Guy (1982)

“Wise men are not pacifists; they are merely less likely to jump up and retaliate against their antagonizers. They know that needless antagonizers are virtually already insecure enough.”
 Criss Jami

“In his face there came to be a brooding peace that is seen most often in the faces of the very sorrowful or the very wise. But still he wandered through the streets of the town, always silent and alone.”

I get that. But it's Carl Jung.

I can be accused of the same thing I'm sure.
