Optimism...As we grow up...


Optimism is a political act.  Those who benefits from the status quo are perfectly happy for us to think nothing is going to get any better.  In fact, these days, cynicism is obedience.

Alex Steffen, The Bright Green City


As we grow up, we put away our laughter and our silliness and our childish noises, the great sensory hilariousness of our young lives. We pick up a few notions about proper behavior, like what books to read and how to go about getting married and buying a home and being police and having cocktail parties…and the next thing you know, the little child – who was also an enormously alive sensory apparatus – is just another boring adult going to work in a seersucker suite with a briefcase.   John Rosenthal, Amazing Conversations
