Quote of the Day

“What this country needs is more people to inspire others with confidence, and fewer people to discourage any initiative in the right direction,” mused Father James Keller.

 

He may have been writing some time ago, but it seems like massive understatement today.  The country really needs leaders, and people willing to try.  Discouraging someone doesn’t require any knowledge or understanding.  Any idiot can tell us five reasons why our new ideas won’t work! But does the critic have any better ideas?  If so, pay attention, but usually not.  It takes real understanding, effort, and courage to try to change anything for the better.   It takes tenacity to persist after the nay-sayers jump in.   We desperately need changes for the better, though, so please keep trying!
