On Being Average

The greatest sin is not becoming evil, or bad, or curl, or harmful or dishonest, or a victim and a loser. But being one thing and one thing only; mediocre and average, this is the common worst.

In the following lines from Ibsen’s, “Peer Gynt” Peer is approached by the agent of death called the button dissolver he can only dissolve buttons (human beings) who did not turn themselves during their lives, into gold or silver buttons (special human beings), he can only melt those who remains average, so maybe, later on in their future life, one of them could be transformed to become silver or gold buttons. And Peer, unfortunately – is average, thus, like most, has to be melted.

Nowhere man – the Beatles:

He’s a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Doesn’t have a point of view
Knows not where he’s going to
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man please listen
You don’t know what you’re missing
Nowhere man, the world is at your command
He’s as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see
Nowhere man, can you see me at all
Nowhere man don’t worry
Take your time, don’t hurry
Leave it all ’til somebody else
Lends you a hand
Ah, la, la, la, la
Doesn’t have a point of view
Knows not where he’s going to
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man please listen
You don’t know what you’re missing
Nowhere man, The world is at your command
Ah, la, la, la, la
He’s a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody.
