I attended the transportation focus group last Friday, which is part of the Comprehensive Plan update process. The community conversation is happening at a pretty high level. But to create the kind of changes we need, the work has just begun. A few quotes came to mind.
“The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”— Albert Einstein
“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” — Mark Twain
‘Learn all you can about where you are. Make common cause with place. Resolve to work with it for a long time…to make a living is to have enough.’ –Wendell Berry interviewed by Bill Moyers
