The Evening Paper - Media, Culture and the Modern Condition

Jul 6, 2022

A friend of mine bought me a Christmas gift, Greenlights, Matthew McConaughey’s best selling autobiography. It's based on decades of the actor’s journals. As I read the pages I think my friend was sending me a message by accident or design.


McConaughey described life as a college sophomore and his plans to be a lawyer. 


He liked the idea so much that doubt and indecision kept him up nights.


He wrote:


“When we know what we want to do,

Knowing when to do it is the hard part

So you don’t have to get on them as often

Prevent before the cure

Habilitate before the re”


Just another reminder that there is nothing new under the sun.
