You may have noticed the quote at the top of our blog, Life is what happens when you’re making other plans. It’s from a John Lennon song called Beautiful Boy, and we figured it did a good job of capturing our sensibility make plans, but don’t be surprised when life hands you the unexpected.
As a reader from Frankfurt pointed out, however, that’s not a wholly accurate version of the quote. The full lyric is more direct (and it uses a different conjunction): Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.
If you’re not familiar with the song, you can watch a tribute video here.
