quote of the day from Brazil

Friday, July 20th, 2007
“… it takes the same energy to say why something can’t be done as to figure out how to do it”

Jaime Lerner (mayor of Curitiba, Brazil)

Jamie Lerner is a fascinating character and three-time mayor of Curitiba. He’s a great advocate of sustainability while understanding the need for mobility. Curitiba is the vibrant capital of the Brazilian state of ParanĂ¡. I still remember my short visit to Curitiba with Peter during my time in Paraguay — what a beautiful city.
