Bathroom idealism instead of kitchen sink realism

”You Must Be The Change You Wish To See in The World”

This is written on the inside of a public restroom stall in Silicon Valley. These kind of inspirational quotes may feel somewhat misplaced in this setting, but here, it feels completely normal. Silicon Valley is pretty far from kitchen sink realism. Instead, they have their own version; bathroom idealism. Even restroom visits provide a gentle reminder that it is time to go out there, and change the world.
