What most people don’t understand is there are very few individuals in this world who are willing to risk anything  to achieve a goal.  Most people want safety above all.  Yet we are all beholden to those few risk-takers because they are at the cutting edge of all of humanity’s discoveries and accomplishments.  Everyone eventually benefits from these rare, risk-taking persons.  But most people don’t understand them.  They try to make them conform to usual conduct, usual rules.  But they are not usual.  They are made of the stuff of greatness.  Little minds don’t understand big dreamers.  They assume a kind of superiority whereby they demand greatness be constrained by small thinking.  A better rule is: mind your own business.  If you aren’t an eagle, just let the eagles fly.

About retiredday

I am Michael D. Day, a regular, everyday guy -- retired. I stand for God-given freedom, which means I think for myself. I believe in being civil, because the Bible teaches that we should love our enemies. But I also believe in saying it how I see it, and explaining just why I see it that way, sort of like 2 Timothy 4:2.
