About freedom, income and happiness


Of course the pink writing grabbed my attention. I photographed the wall, not far from my house, in its pre-pink state almost a year ago: http://whatisbelgium.blogspot.be/2013/04/freedom-of-street-art.html.
Today the "happiness" has been added and the other words have changed place.
Philosophy, street art or neither?

  1. It's much more than street art.
    I love it.

  4. Ha ha! Both sayings could keep a philosophy class busy for an hour. Very interesting!

    So, my husband went for a very interesting interview today and they asked if he'd be willing to move to Brussels! Of course, he said yes!

    1. I agree with your comment on keeping a class busy.
      I knew somehow that one day you'd make it over here.
      Bonne chance to your husband!

    1. The question is an open one, Diane and I guess that there is no 'right' answer.:)

    1. Is it not funny how ambiguous people are to street art, Japolina? Another philosophical theme right there...

  10. Hallo Anni,
    Ik denk eerder aan een idealistische reactie tegen een al te materialistische slogan...

  11. Bonjour Anni
    Je ne considère pas ces écritures comme du street-art mais plus pour des graffiti et en général je n'aime pas trop.
    Je reconnais qu'il y a du beau street-art et des graffiti jolis.
    Je préfère la version avec le rose.
    Bonne journée !

    1. Bonjour Claude,
      Merci pour ces paroles sages... les sujets féminins semblent préférer le rose ;)
      Bon weekend!

  12. Conclusion : happiness increases with your level of income. En Français, on dit plutôt que l'argent ne fait pas le bonheur.
