And vice versa

“To think continuously about changing the world is to spend your life looking at what is bad in it.  To be attached to the world is to be attached to the world as it is, and not for any reason, because reasons can always be countered.  To consider the world from first principles, to think about how well it would work if everything were different, is to be ready to throw away everything you know.  Radical idealism and a sense of limitless possibility are the brighter facets of absolute rejection.” — Larissa MacFarquhar, “Requiem for a Dream”
