“SINGING INTO A MICROPHONE AND LEARNING TO PLAY AN INSTRUMENT…THAT\’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR PEOPLE TO DO… IT\’S NOT ABOUT WHAT GOES ON IN A COMPUTER. IT\’S ABOUT WHAT GOES ON IN HERE AND HERE (POINTS TO HEART AND HEAD.)”
– Dave Grohl on Fast CoCreate
An old-fashioned French online guide to proper comportment shoots down that very modern way of thinking, which many view as an encroaching threat in France as well: â€œPhilosophers may say that politeness is the greatest form of hypocrisy,â€ it states. â€œBut if saying hello, apologizing, thanking, helping those in need, being attentive to others, are signs of hypocrisy, then we accept that epithet, and can offer no defense.â€
Judith Warner – “Why American Kids Are Brats”
Excellent. An easy choice, indeed.
“We keep bringing more magic into the world, but rising expectations mean that there’s more disappointment as well.
That’s part of the deal of being in the world.
The alternative, I’m afraid, isn’t to choose a path where we make everyone happy and always exceed their expectations. Nope. The alternative is to hide, to fail to engage and to produce nothing.
A pretty easy choice.”
