Quotes from Michael Leunig.
“This life is actually very exhausting. It doesn’t give humans much time to contemplate anything. We are not resting ourselves and there is the feeling we have got to keep working and pushing really hard. So I draw the person running and running and running-for no apparent reason. And suddenly I find that I have touched on something that is perhaps universal.” – MICHAEL LEUNIG
“While Australians may have uncertainties about the authenticity of their man-made culture, there can be no doubt that the land beneath their feet that stretches into the unknown beyond their horizons is utterly real and natural. It has identity and integrity. It has soul. Yet all too easily a nation that is predominantly urban in character may lose sight of its natural setting and spirit of country – and be all the poorer, sadder and less vital for such loss of connection; it may suffer some deadening loss of imagination, joyous humility and visionary innocence. A nation may turn its back on its greatest source of wisdom and underestimate how much it needs the natural world.” – MICHAEL LEUNIG
“Cacocracy – Governmental rule by the worst, the least able, the most unsuitable, despicable and incompetent people. EG: The two tramps sat on the park bench and agreed that if they were in government they would make a hash of it and cause the country to fall into despair, dysfunction, stupidity and a squalid quagmire of petty conflict. ‘Lucky we’re not in charge of the country mate’ said one of the tramps as he swigged from his bottle, ‘the system would end up being a bloody cacocracy.” – MICHAEL LEUNIG
