RIP Professor Zinn

"If those in charge of our society - politicians, corporate executives, and owners of press and television - can dominate our ideas, they will be secure in their power. They will not need soldiers patrolling the streets. We will control ourselves." ~Howard Zinn

saved them from drought, disease, avalanches,
and a thousand tempests and floods.
But he cannot save them from fools."

Live, With a Net

"Leap and the net will appear."

-Attribution unknown

I figure this is under the "nothing ventured, nothing gained" category, but it is a much deeper musing on faith. It sounds great, but boy is it hard to put into action. However, I think we can all reflect on times where we've made profound decisions fairly quickly and those decisions have stayed with us for a considerable time. In many of those cases, the "net" did actually appear. We may not have recognized the "net" as such, but we do realize its precense on reflection.
