“In comparison with the Genesis myth, the modern myth in which humanity is marching to a better future is mere superstition. As the Genesis story teaches, knowledge cannot save us from ourselves. If we know more than before, it means only that we have greater scope to enact our madness. But – as the Genesis myth also teaches – there is no way we can rid ourselves of what we know . . . The message of Genesis is that in the most vital areas of human life there can be no progress, only an unending struggle with our nature.”
― John N. Gray, The Silence of Animals: On Progress and Other Modern Myths

I am I
You are you
I was not born to live up to
your expectations
You were not born to live up
to mine
So you go do your thing
and I will go and do mine
If by chance we should meet
that would be BEAUTIFUL 🥰💯🫂❤

I've always found the first of these quotes a 'so-true' guiding principle (not that I always follow it)

Regarding the second quote, as someone who builds things with nuts, bolts, metal & wood, when starting a new project I say to myself "The journey of a thousand bolts starts with a single nut" ... Here's one of the journeys:
