I agree with the quote (at least partly).
But I have a question, if that's a blackboard, why didn't anybody write on it?

This one is impressive, Mick. Inspiring.

Actually, it's not a blackboard. It's called a tack board that railroad crews staple way bills to. This one has been recently refinished and painted.

John M. Mora:
The philosophical thought in some graffiti never ceases to amaze me.

The message is good although the place is not...interesting.

Carolyn Ford:
It's always been an idea of mine to connect graffiti artists with railroad companies. Subcontracting artist teams to paint entire cars could go a long way toward improving the art form while benefiting both parties.

I'm up! I'm up!

I've been photographing graffiti for many years and, despite the destructiveness and legal issues, find a lot of it beautiful in many ways.

one of my favorite quotes and the image is also of one of my favorites-- walls with graffiti - certainly apt today.
