Quote by Tori Amos
Our generation has an incredible amount of realism, yet at the same time it loves to complain and not really change. Because, if it does change, then it won't have anything to complain about.
This quote suggests that the current generation possesses a strong sense of realism and practicality. However, it also highlights the tendency of this generation to indulge in complaining without taking effective action or bringing about meaningful change. It implies that complaining allows individuals to vent frustrations, but if they were to initiate change, they would no longer have a reason to complain. Thus, the quote sheds light on the paradoxical nature of the generation's inclination towards both realism and complaint.
I guess we're all, or most of us, the wards of that nineteenth-century science which denied existence to anything it could not measure or explain. The things we couldn't explain went right on but surely not with our blessing. We did not see what we couldn't explain, and meanwhile a great part of the world was abandoned to children, insane people, fools, and mystics, who were more interested in what is than in why it is. So many old and lovely things are stored in the world's attic, because we don't want them around us and we don't dare throw them out.
