Have you ever gotten the feeling there are messages inside what we see around us?

We were in Manhattan all day & as I was showing my son the sixth floor walk up apartment building we used to live at in Greenwich Village, he grabbed the camera & laughing to himself snapped this picture.

Looking for quotes about men & work I stumbled across a site that had some thought provoking ones. Check this one out.

"I see all this potential, and I see squandering... damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables—slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war . . . our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off."
Fight Club, 1999
I remember after seeing this movie I felt like it conveyed a very important message. I think this quote may sum it up a bit without having to endure the fight scenes.
