A good quote

I found this quote and find it is a good one in light of my previous post. It is a quote from Neal A. Maxwell and I find it inspiring in relation to the times we are going through.

“I fear that as conditions worsen, many will react to the failures of too much government by calling for even more government. Then there will be more and more lifeboats launched because fewer and fewer citizens know how to swim. Unlike some pendulums, political pendulums do not swing back automatically; they must be pushed. History is full of instances when people have waited in vain for pendulums to swing back.”
{Neal A. Maxwell – Insights From My Life, p. 196}

Here we are in a point where we are seeing an “instance” once again and hindsight was not enough to prevent it from happening again. It is important that be do not become dependent on lifeboats that may never come and pendulums that may never swing back across the valleys of life.
