The Wisdom of Griff

On the train this morning I was witness to the following sage words from a man named Griff.

“You know what? One day a couple is going to get married and go on their honeymoon to Mars.

Now, that won’t be in my life time. It probably won’t be in your life time. It might be in your children’s children’s lifetime. But it’s going to happen.

I truly believe that. We will visit Mars, and Venus and what-have-you. It’s going to happen. Maybe not for me, maybe not for you, but maybe your children, or their children. Boy do I wish I could see that. Good Lord, do I wish I could see that!

You see, we’re at the apex right now. We’re at a cross roads. The trick is, we’ll get there sooner or later, we just have to survive long enough to get there. Mankind creates a lot of things. The problem is we turn everything we create into a damn weapon.

Well, this is my stop. My name is Griff. It was nice talking to you. You see if you don’t talk to anybody, nobody will know that you were ever here. Alright, have a good day.”
