The human character is filled with countless flaws. A good number of them are recognized, but most are unnoticed. One of them being our need for perfection.
Everybody wants to create something great, something awe-inspiring… something that’ll give them a hell of a lot of attention. But nobody wants to do maintenance. Nobody wants to make sure that that great thing still exists in our grand-children’s time.
Greatness requires upkeep. But as I said, we are flawed, for we do not recognize this.
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
