Thought for Friday


Telling lies to the young is wrong.
Proving to them that lies are true is wrong.
The young know what you mean. The young are people.
Tell them the difficulties can’t be counted,
And let them see not only what will be
But see with clarity these present times.

Yevgeny Yevtushenko

I found this in Victor Papanek’s Design for the real world. Chapter 11, The neon blackboard. For the book go here.

It  seemed appropriate.
