Tip Of The Day - 1/9/06 - Can You Imagine?

"On June 6th, 1944 thousands of American paratroopers jumped into Normandy. Four men refused the jump. Can you imagine, can anyone imagine the rest of these men's lives? What prodigies of self-excuse, rationale, or repression they must have had to employ? Their lives, in effect, ended the moment they refused to leave the will yours and mine, and as they do in part, we each refuse the opportunity to change - we stagnate and perform ever greater prodigies of repression and hypocrisy, to explain to ourselves why we don't immerse ourselves in the mysteries of life. We all die in the end, but there's no reason to die in the middle."

- David Mamet, playwright

True it is, however, before taking any leap in faith out of your own life’s airplane it may be wise to contemplate the idea of strapping on a parachute.

But nevertheless, behold the turtle who doesn’t go anywhere until he sticks his neck out. Right?
