Do Nothing?

I’m a fixer, so it makes sense that my favorite quote is the one most often attributed to Edmund Burke: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

Memorial lights

Memorial lights shine on the anniversary of 9/11.

Tomorrow marks the 18th anniversary of 9/11/2001, the day that changed the world as we know it. Hindsight tells us that the signs were there and we did nothing.

Will the same thing be said of us today? The signs are all here for us to see. Whether the world as we know it is changing is not the question–it is changing. The question is whether it changes for good or for evil. All that is left is for us to do nothing.

Quote for Thought

Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever and to whatever abysses nature leads, or you shall learn nothing.”
