#2 : Bonjour Tout Le Monde

Its Saturday here, so here’s another French quote that I love:

“Utopia is simply that which hasn’t been tried before.”

Wouldn’t you agree? 🙂 🙂

  1. There is a theory (I forget what it’s called but it is well known) which states we all desire what we don’t have and when we acheive it we no longer desire it. I’m not sure I quite agree with it (I’ve acheived much of what I hoped for in life and still desire it every day – though there are still things I desire which I have yet to acheive so my own life doesn’t completey nullify the theory) but I think your quote (beautiful in the French by the way 🙂 ) is saying much the same thing. I think it is, at least, a useful way of expressing one form of utopia – but not the only one!

    1. That’s true 🙂 there are something’s that we pine for but when we get it, its not as wonderful as we imagined it to be 🙂 but sometimes, just getting even a glimpse of what we want, makes us more determined to get it 🙂

  2. I love the quote, but as I was reading the comments I couldn’t help but think that there is an unfortunate side to the interpretation you and D.K.Powell were discussing, which would be when a man/woman pursues a potential lover who at first resists causing the pursuer to redouble their efforts, only to lose interest in their objective once they succeed in obtaining it, thus producing a string of broken hearts which are left shattered in their wake. “Holy Don Juan Batman!” Lol.
