A Quote by William Carlos Williams on anger, cooking, fame, nations, thinking, and trying

Sometimes I find myself thinking, rather wistfully, about Lao Tzu's famous dictum: 'Govern a great nation as you would cook a small fish.' All around me I see something very different, let us say - a number of angry dwarfs trying to grill a whale.

William Carlos Williams (1883 - 1963)
