A world

“Let us face a pluralistic world in which there are no universal churches, no single remedy for all diseases, no one way to teach or write or sing, no magic diet, no world poets, and no chosen races, but only the wretched and wonderfully diversified human race.”

-Jacques Barzun

    We need unity and not uniformity. I mentioned it in one of my posts, we need to give to kids as many different colours as we can buy, because then while drawing they learn about the beauty of diversity, and learn to be tolerant later in life when they grow up.

    “. . . only the wretched and wonderfully diversified human race.”

    I’m here to represent the wretched. Someone else will have to speak for the wonderful.

    Sometimes all that separates the wretched from the wonderful is a nice clean pair of skivvies. For me it depends on the day. Today I am wretched, by the way.
