Cry of the Homebuilder

Post by Bruno Ogorelec » Sun May 18, 2008 12:29 pm

I have found this on the web. The author is unknown and the poem apparently quite old.

We the willing
Led by the unknowing
Have done so much
for so long
with so little.
We are now qualified
to do anything,
with nothing.

Probably off topic, but somehow those classics reminded me of these classics:

Imagine having so little "back then." Here's a cartoon that illustrates how comical the technological divide has become.

My mantra is similar:
Everything for nothing in zero time, all for the unworthy.

The machinists mantra "You can ask for light, strong and cheap but you can only have two".
