“We have met the enemy and he is us.”

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.”

  1. Un bel fumetto, soprattutto vero e coerente coi giorni nostri, come dico sempre io: andava meglio quando andava peggio… Forse s9nom7n pò tropo pessimista 😒

  2. Bon Jeudi A Tous
    “Faites-vous votre objectif de faire sourire quelqu’un ce jeudi par un petit acte de gentillesse, vous pourriez changer la vie d’une personne d’une manière que vous ne réalisez même pas.”

    “Le moindre acte de gentillesse vaut plus que la plus grande intention.”

    “Les jeudis et matins ne se mélangent pas. Rien ne va avec les matins.”

    “Une des meilleures choses que vous pouvez faire jeudi est de vous tenir pour responsable de vos objectifs.”
    bisous BERNARD
