Today is Saint Jordi's day, a big day for Catalonia. He's the patron of Catalonia and also famous for the tale of Saint Jordi and the Dragon, a very popular figure here that can be found represented in many pieces of art around Barcelona, like here, on the gates of the Guell Pavilion! Amazing, isn't it?
"Unfinished. Of all the words that you could use to describe La Sagrada Familia; brown, pointy, weird. The one that really seems to stick is unfinished. Why? Because on June 7th 1926, the architect, Antoni Gaudi – whose beard was also brown, pointy, weird, and unfinished, was run-over by a bus. And so, his greatest masterpiece would remain forever unfinished. Gaudi, to his credit never gave up on his dream. But that’s not usually how it goes. I mean, usually it isn’t the speeding bus that keeps the brown, pointy, weird church from getting built. Most of the time it’s just too difficult, or too expensive, or too scary. It’s only once you’ve stopped that you realized how hard it is to start again. So you force yourself not to want it. But it’s always there and until you finish it, it will always be…" - Ted Mosby (How I Met Your Mother; S06E03)
