  • The placement & line break punctuation of this inscription @ Dupont metro Q St ticks falls so far short. It’s an insult to Whitman & a pain in the neck to everyone else. Top marks for bad idea.

  • It may not be ideal, but I still really like the quote even though I’m not a huge WW fan. I never paid attention to it for years, but happened to notice it on the one year anniversary of a coworker being killed, and it really hit me – started crying right on the escalator. I get to think of him now every time I see it.
