OMG people. I forgot Wisest Stone Day and no one reminded me! Now I'm in for it. He's never gonna shut up about this one.
Taku consulted the shiny paper map. “I think the Philosophy Department is that way,” he said, pointing over his shoulder.
The Wisest Stone stood beside the sidewalk, out of place without a coat of garish paint portraying the school’s mascot. “What is the point? They talk and talk, endlessly, and yet they never take any actions to bring about change in the world. What value is someone who always criticizes and never accomplishes?”
Taku folded the map away. “You are much as they are.”
The Wisest Stone was silent for a moment. “True. But the difference is: I am right.”
