Reminds me of the girl in American Beauty "There's nothing worse than being ordinary".
...Just funny how people try so hard to stand out.
But Liz, I don't think there's a mediocre bone in your body.

What do you think is the difference between ordinary and mediocrity. I always thot ordinary is your circumstances, mediocrity is a state of mind. Settling, if you will. I feel strongly. Maybe I'll dedicate more to the subject..
and thanks florecita, i'm touched to the very marrow:D

Mediocrity is self-inflicted. Genius is self-bestowed.

Yeah. Right.
Yes, mediocrity is definitly self-inflicted, but genius is not self-bestowed.
It sounded nice though.

BarbarianDave said...

It wasn't me who first said it. And it can be self bestowed!

Liz said...

I would say, since genius is usually not a gift but a burden, it would be more inflicted no?

BarbarianDave said...

Ahh! Sweet!

mediocrity is something that can only be classified by those to few that dont understand the world so have to put into a glass box and ship it off to societies epicentre of misguided and often false truths. Although ordinary can be defined as: A charge or bearing of simple form, i prefer to think of it as somebody who has spent to long inside the square and can only go places once realising this.

But thats just what i think....
this reminds me however of a peice in the nsw art gallery of a line painted on a mirror that read 'no object can imply the existence of any other'.
