Not By Plato

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”

I saw this quotation attributed to Plato the other night, ““We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” and thought it did not sound right. I like the idea, though, that it is tragic that people fear the light, which I take as a metaphor for knowledge and truth. It certainly is tragic for our planet when people fear the light that science can shed on the issue. Anyway, I was suspicious of the quote, thinking it sounded too modern and in researching, discovered that there seems to be a cottage industry in fake Plato quotes. It’s amazing and worth checking out for the sheer vastness of it all.

Also worth checking out is the wonderful selection of holographic inspired items from Collabor88. I particularly liked this top from Stories&Co by Flowey. I like that it has the fluidity of color that we would expect without the insistent sheen that is common in most selections. It’s not matte, but it is subdued and I like that very much.

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”

I added lovely boots from Ingenue which are the same color as the top, though the projector light from Soy is projecting some yellow on them. Most of the light comes from a projector I made, but the light at the bottom is from the Soy lamp. The jeans are from Bueno and a a great fit. They do not go perfectly with the tee shirt, as there’s a bit of intersection in the back, but you can compensate by wearing a slightly bigger tee. The sign is from FloorPlan, the posing stool from Purple Poses and the balloons from Half Deer.

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”

I added a fun topknot from BooN which is on sale at Hairology, the event hat gives my spell check the jimjams. It is constantly changing it to horology and I really expect one of these months, they should do some watch-themed hair styles. The fabulous feather earrings are from Zaara for Collabor88 and aren’t they fabulous?
