Sign of the times?
As seen in a window of a nearby building.
What do you think?
According to Oscar Wilde:
Popularity is the crown of laurel which the world puts on bad art. Whatever is popular is wrong.
But he also said:
Popularity is the one insult I have never suffered.
Here’s Mark Twain’s take:
Everybody's private motto: It's better to be popular than right.
But Twain also says this:
Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.
Winston Churchill’s is thought provoking:
Perhaps it is better to be irresponsible and right, than to be responsible and wrong.
And Ralph Waldo Emerson:
What your heart thinks is great, is great. The soul's emphasis is always right.
