via Facebook: QUOTE OF THE DAY … from a comment on a FB friends discussion about the hard headedness and hard heartedness of many people today:
I find myself quoting Niven and Pournelle often lately. “Think of it as evolution in action.”
The phrase is from Oath of Fealty, a 1981 novel by American science fiction writers Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.
Today, I read Jesus saying of the Pharisees, Matthew 15:14: Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”
I still want to warn people about the pit, though, even though they are not listening. And I also know that people probably think that I am also obstinate and not listening to them.
I will try to “let them alone” as Jesus advised.
