A television commercial very well worth remembering.
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
(Jack Kerouac – From his book: On The Road)
Is that apropos? I like to think it is.
(I was reminded of this old commercial after tracing back an incoming link from the Sumptuous! – reflecting a world too special to waste blog in a post there entitled Thinking differently where the author there drfrank claims to have rediscovered it from the "blog of Steven Brant, a New York based consultant who’s trying to use systems thinking to meld the domains of sustainable development and conflict prevention. The entry there containing it was a great one entitled "Al Gore: "Think Differently" To Create A Better World")
