‘Not Always What They Seem’

Dolphins-and-Greek-Merchant-Boat-Painting

“It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much – the wheel, New York, wars and so on – whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man – for precisely the same reasons.”

– Douglas Adams, “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”

    What a beautiful thought 👋

  2. Cheers! I’ve always liked this quote, glad it spoke to you, too. Makes me think a bit about why we value what we value. Those dolphins might be on to something. 🙂
