「选择了这种生活方式的『我』,这样做真的可以吗?请你告诉我『可以』。」(岡田斗司夫对「萌」的定义)

I worked at NeXT the summer of ’94. I was in the break room with 2 colleagues when Jobs walked in and started making a bagel. We were sitting at a table eating ours when he out of the blue asked us “Who is the most powerful person in the world?” I said Mandela since I had just been there as an international observer for the elections. In his confident fashion he stated “NO!…You are all wrong…The most powerful person in the world is the story teller.” At this point I was thinking to myself “Steve, I love you but there is a fine line between genius and loco…and I think I am witnessing this right now.” Steve continued, “The storyteller sets the vision, values and agenda of an entire generation that is to come and Disney has a monopoly on the storyteller business. You know what? I am tired of that bullshit, I am going to be the next storyteller.” And he walked out with his bagel.

近来富贵家儿与一二庸奴钝汉,沾沾以好事自命,每经赏鉴,出口便俗,入手便粗,纵极其摩娑护持之情状,其污辱弥甚,遂使真韵、真才、真情之士,相戒不谈风雅。

Those uncompromising compromisers have got to be stopped! Their absurd ‘two sides to every argument’ propaganda is a threat to the very fabric of society.
