Excuse Me Sir, You Dropped Your Pocket
When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.
- Jonathan Swift (1667-1745)
Maybe is Powerful Motivation
Excuse Me, Sir, You Dropped Your Pocket
Inspired by Jonathan Swift's (1667-1745) quote, "When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him". The titled responsion accentuates the duplicity of this tranquil urban space. Dropping a pocket is a momentary distraction from the complexity of the genius out for a stroll. Flâneur away my friend, flâneur away!
You may not be a genius but thinking you are is a convincing forme (Plato) of self-talk, soothing perhaps and yet the persistence of maybe is manifest in the minds of millions. How do these alliterative and incremental states of becoming parallel with this signature quote below from Paulo Coelho? Pinning the attribute of identity on Swift's version is aristocratic in its resonance, I prefer Coelho's universal approach. What are your thoughts?
"When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." - Paulo Coelho (1947-present)
