Quote it like you mean it …

Do you also have have the feeling that our society thrives on posting quotes to social networks ... but why does no one live after them? Do people love quotes just for the sake of it? Pretentious is it? I mean if everyone would follow all these quotes of how to become or be a better version of oneself why is it there is so much betrayal and hate in our most beautiful world?

Young and able? Loves travelling?

Let us have a closer look at this one. I have no idea who came up with it, but it literally is everywhere these days and whenever I stumble upon it, I want to open the window and scream out loud out of pain: “Travel while you are young and able. Don’t worry about the money, just make it work. Experience is far more valuable than money will ever be.”

It sounds lovely and what else, encouraging, cool, in the know, able? Right, but what if you are young and disabled or old and able? Do the people who invented this quote prefer these ones to rather stay at home and watch telly or worse? Old people can be able and disabled people can get equipment which enables them. Is our world exclusive for pretty, young and healthy people who are 'able'?

Quote as you mean it. Who in their right mind wants to hurt other people's feelings ... I am sure you will somewhere find a smart quote helping you express that you won't do that. Ever.

What do you think of all this? Looking forward to hear from you.

From Berlin with love

Greetings stranger. I always try to be myself and to be a tourist as often as I can. I would love to get in contact with lots of hard travelling tourists who love to be out and about as much as I do. I am looking forward to all your comments. Thanks so much in advance.
