Moral imagination: the humility to see the world as it is, and the audacity to imagine the world as it could be.— Beautiful words from the new Acumen Manifesto. (via explore-blog)
Why do we run when it’s raining? Well, there turns out to be a lot of physics in explaining why that action is ineffectual because the same amount of rain gets on you whether you walk or run, except of course if you spend less time under the rain.
Except for this guy of course
The rain fallacy after some afterthought led me to an observation, which is not new, however it does allow for one more metaphor which describes how much we love to run. Now, some people are outright lazy such as myself, but what we all have in common is we run away from pain, toil, discomfort.. It’s a natural trait, and it probably increases our lifespan, nevertheless, when we run away from pain we are often running away from success, happiness, or even paradise.
That droplet of rain might be the one that washes away the tears. So, don’t be afraid to walk under the rain; firstly, because it’s futile to run, and secondly, because it might be just what you need.
