Currie's Gratitude 3 March 2014

The first ingredient to being wrong is to claim that you are right. Geniuses have a knack for raising new questions. Hence by the public they are either admired for their creativity or, even more commonly so, detested for disturbing the daily peace of mind.  [Criss Jami]

It’s a thoughty experience finding quotes for words that mean something to me. Enough of something to make art and write about them.

Take DISRUPTION. I’m glad for my head BEing bent this morning. To BE swayed this way and that.

In times such as ours, however, when there is too much order, too much management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption. [Tom Robbins, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues]

I wonder sometimes if it is wise to BE disruptive. I don’t guess that we can see this ahead of time. It’s the rear view mirror that reveals disruption’s wisdom.

The First Amendment was designed to allow for disruption of business as usual. It is not a quiet and subdued amendment or right.  [Naomi Wolf]

This particular quote made me see why I wanted to explore DISRUPTION in the first place.

I love you, Currie

Disruption of the status quo can be a good thing, I think. :)
