There is a French quote : ‘Plus ca change (plus c’est la meme chose)’
The best translation of its meaning I found is that it is ‘used to express resigned acknowledgement of the fundamental immutability of human nature and institutions.’
So I will give my Friday quote a little direction henceforth – my aim is to show this quote in the literature that I love. From children’s literature, to plays, poetry, and philosophy. To show not only it working within the words, but in the writing community.
What was once said by Aristotle can probably be found in a version of its time in the latest kindle bestseller.
