TAL quote

27 May 2008

this is what we do, humans. we tinker and change and endlessly imagine a more perfect future. and at the same time, we idealize the past. so we’re trapped. progress’ constant companion is nostalgia for the way things used to be… the thing we forget about progress is that there is no master plan. it lurches forward, in the dark, accidentally, and you’re never sure where it’s taking you.

-Alex Blumberg, This American Life,¬†Pandora’s Box television episode
