Early this May, I spotted this ‘insightful’ comment in the Ladies, on the back of the door, of the deli, next to the Big Apple Hostel, in New York City. (What a mouthful!).
“The world is full of two kinds of men:
Religious men without intelligence
& intelligent men without religion.”
I will remember that when I snapped the picture I forgot to turn of the flash on the camera and some elderly lady probably thought it was some wierdo in the bathroom. Two years later, I still remember her saying “Oh, come on!”. Self amusement ensues as I scuttle out of there, fast. But I digress.
The door became temporary educational and quoteworthy canvas because it held other pearls of wisdom, such as:
Life must be lived as Play” – Plato
And another of my favorites:
“If your mind is narrow,
Small things will agitate you.
Make your mind an ocean.”
It’s strange how we can find inspiration in the most unlikely of places.
