Grandson Meets Voltaire


“Il faut cultiver notre jardin.”
–Voltaire, Candide, “It is necessary to cultivate our (own) garden.”

As in “We must tend to our own affairs.”
Or “We must focus on growing and creating our own life, world, and beauty.”
Or (given the craziness, chaos, destruction, violence, and absurdity of Voltaire’s/Candide’s/our world),”it is our individual (and collective) responsibility to make our own way/s in life (in order to survive, to achieve some beauty, balance, and perspective).”
