‘We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it,’ always seemed to me like an odd expression, as if somehow saying it meant we can solve a problem, we just don’t want to, or that you just wanted to avoid the whole thing altogether. It seems to to make more sense to say we’ll cross that river, or gorge, or desert when it comes up. But here you have a bridge that was built to get you to the other side of something. I mean what’s the sense of having it unless you’re going to use the damn thing!
"Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead." -Louisa May Alcott
