Thought For the Day: There Is Nothing So Pitiful As A Young Cynic Because They Have Gone From Knowing Nothing To Believing Nothing

“There is nothing so pitiful as a young cynic because he has gone from knowing nothing to believing nothing.”  – Maya Angelou

I had been searching for the right words with respect to Greta Thunberg.  Ms. Angelou could not have said it better.  It’s not so much anger toward this know nothing young lady with so little gratitude who has been spoon fed her lines by much older equally ignorant people but outright pity.   She knows so very little and believes even less.  What a sad state of being to live in at the beginning of her life.  As time goes on and she sees the predictions of her side fail over and over again as I have what will be left for her?  I was once a rabid sort of environmentalist too – less filled with anger toward the world but also believing that the answer is to seek how to make things better not just complain and do nothing but complain and rage.  Hopefully, life will lead her to better answers and less reliance on the people who are using her as a tool.
