"The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men." attributed to Plato

"Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing." attributed to Edmund Burke

Let's between us make the world a better place.

Following on from my last post, I believe another reason for inertia is the “busyness” of so many of us – the inability to be able to sit back and reflect on individual responsibilities – how we can effect change from the bottom up – instead we look to management to make change– or Government to make laws – but that is not the right way forward.

Leo Tolstoy once said: “In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.” Most of us need to do just that once in a while, to reappraise where we are frantically hurrying, to consider the effect of our actions on those around us and on the future of the world. Perhaps we have Benjamin Franklin to blame when, at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, he declared that “Time is Money” and our busyness has been fuelled by greed ever since.

I really liked this photo - was taken in the same area where I took the picture of the crooked house in the last post!! Any idea where this is?
