Thought: Changing the World
Something the roommate and I were discussing earlier. It’s very perplexing to both of us when people don’t seek to do something meaningful with their existence. Though she and I both would like to change the world to some degree, albeit in very different ways, there are still tons of people who don’t possess that desire. To clarify, I also feel changing the world doesn’t have to mean that you’re becoming the next president or discovering the cure for cancer (…hopefully soon) it could be something as simple yet effective as inventing Velcro.
Which brings me to my next point: do you think Shakespeare knew? Like, did he realize that the stuff he was spending his time writing would change the world by forever impacting the English language? Did he realize that he would become timeless? I wonder.
