Quote by John Corry
One of the glories of New York is its ethnic food, and only McDonald's and Burger King equalize us all.
This quote highlights the diversity and multiculturalism of New York City, emphasizing the wide array of ethnic food options available. It suggests that while people may come from different backgrounds and cultures, fast food chains like McDonald's and Burger King provide a unifying factor by being universally accessible and familiar to all residents, regardless of their ethnicity or socioeconomic status. However, it may also hint at the potential loss of cultural authenticity or uniqueness that can occur when multinational fast food chains become dominating forces in a city known for its gastronomic diversity.
...the story of a man who saw three fellows laying bricks at a new building:He approached the first and asked, What are you doing?Clearly irritated, the first man responded, What the heck do you think I'm doing? I'm laying these darn bricks!He then walked over to the second bricklayer and asked the same question.The second fellow responded, Oh, I'm making a living.He approached the third bricklayer with the same question, What are you doing?The third looked up, smiled and said, I'm building a cathedral.At the end of the day, who feels better about how he's spent his last eight hours?
