Don’t forget

“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds…” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Apparently, this is the credo of the National Roads Authority’s translation department.

You see, earlier this week, the Shiputzim family spotted two road signs on one of Israel’s northern highways.

Each of the signs was more than blogworthy in its own right.

But the two signs together – situated, as they were, less than a kilometer apart - well, all I can say is that they would’ve warmed Emerson’s transcendental heart…

IMG_1858IMG_1859To remind or not to remind – that is the question…



And in other J-Blogosphere news:


  1. That's one of my favorite quotes. It is not knocking consistency, as in the signs, but unthinking consistency. An example would be someone who will insist on always taking a walk at the same time of day, even if it very hot or raining at the time.

  2. Thank you so much for linking to my roundup.
