    I view, but it's all just pieces of a puzzle in the end

    "Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world. Unreasonable people attempt to adapt the world to themselves. All progress, therefore, depends on unreasonable people."
    George Bernard Shaw
    "The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
    Reichsfuhrer Herman Goering at the Nuremburg trials.

    Is that supposed to be some kind of conventional wisdom? Conventional BS. These are the excuses of tyrants.

    I don't exactly agree with his use of the word "reasonable", but that's a good quote.

    It's a phrase which means nothing. Equivalent to: "If you want something done, you gotta do it, bro!"

    It's as well not said, as said. Unless you were just trying to be poetic, in which case you could've done a lot better.
