According to Salvador Dalí and Margaret Thatcher I’m a loser and a failure. I came across these quotes on Tumblr (via goingurban) this morning:
“A man of forty who still rides the metro is a loser.” -Salvador Dalí
“A man who, beyond the age of twenty-six, finds himself on a bus can count himself as a failure.” -Margaret Thatcher
Now as much as I like dislike buses (and prefer the train varietal), I’ve made it pretty clear that I’m a believer in mass transit.
If anything, I think these quotes show how much the world has changed, although perhaps only in certain geographies. Depending on where you live (I’m thinking Los Angeles or, maybe, Oklahoma City), it probably still sucks not to have a car.
That’s too bad.
