O tempo e a pressa

We, who are on the cutting edge of progress, accept noise, polluted air, canned food and heart attacks as long as everything moves fast enough for us to accomplish even more. Things move too fast. Future generations will find it impossible to digest all the entertainment and all the leisure.

Thor Heyerdahl, In the Footsteps of Adam, Londres, 2001, pg 182-183

We think we have made our world smaller because we travel fast to save time. But in former times people could afford to travel slowly. They were rich in time.

Thor Heyerdahl, idem, pg 263

Eu, quando viajo, gosto de viajar devagarinho. É um tempo mais rico o que corre com vagar.

Mas no dia a dia exaspera-me "perder" tempo em deslocações obrigatórias, filas, desvios...decididamente, que o progresso traga o carro voador!
