"The man with a new idea is a Crank until the idea succeeds."
-Mark Twain (1835-1910)
Imagine the ridicule that the Wright Brothers must have had to put up with. But did that deter them? Obviously not! Anything new and innovative might be regarded with fear or suspicion because it is untried, unproven. I guess it's just a part of our human nature to be skeptical. Thank goodness there are those among us who follow their dreams regardless of their critics! From just one idea, when it blooms, many seeds spring forth, and a whole garden of ideas can then grow and flourish! That's progress. And we can do the same thing spiritually, too.
