Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

To me this quote is even more appropriate in our time than in von Goethe’s.

We are a Google search away from most any information we want.

We can even find deeper knowledge and deeper truths much easier than in time’s past.

We are even more willing.

We have seen the evils of the past and (in general) are more willing to set a better path for the future.

The hard parts are the little moments.

The little moments when we choose to do the unselfish thing.

The little moments when we forgive.

The little moments when we forgo our due in lieu of another.

The little moments when we seek first to understand.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply.

Willing is not enough; we must do.

Make it a great day.
