Grandfather Says: A Quick Thought on Hubris

Original oil painting by: Grandfather’s wife

Grandfather says all human institutions succumb to hubris, eventually.

Grandfather says he thinks that’s not all bad, although he misses some of them as they excelled in their heyday.

The NBC Symphony Orchestra under Arturo Toscanini comes to mind. Hubris lay in Toscanini’s increasing dissatisfaction under NBC.

New institutions arise to have their time and place in the sun and as usual with anything he can think of, there’s good and bad in the mix.
