American animator and cartoonist Walt Kelly was born on 25 August 1913.
He is famous for the comic strip Pogo, created in 1945, which followed the adventures of its funny animal characters, including the title character, an opossum.
The strip, written for both children and adults, became his platform for social, political and philosophical commentary.
Here are three quotes:
“We have met the enemy and he is us.”
“Don’t take life so serious, son, it ain’t nohow permanent,”
“Looking back on things, the view always improves.”
“Abbiamo incontrato il nemico ed eravamo noi”.
“Non prendere la vita così sul serio, figliolo, non è per niente permanente”
“Guardando indietro alle cose, ciò che vediamo risulta sempre migliore.”
