Do something

Another quote from my book..

Inaction galvanises our opponents’ resolve, it motivates them, abets them, speeds them towards victory; as apathy dishonours ourselves and the causes we fight and die for. Doing something, even the wrong thing, is better than nothing. Doing nothing creates a vacuum, where light and sound and hope do not travel. It is the black hole that grows in the space of our cowardly hearts.

    I do rather enjoy being even a little more than doing. Doing can be an addiction. Thus I occasionally sit quietly being. (Meditation) Addressing the opponent thing, not regularly in my world. So, from my place on the world, I am wanting to acknowledge your experience with opponents and congratulate your thoughts!

    John Stuart Mill said, “Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.” However, I have also found that finding the expedient solution cause longer term difficulties. “Do something” may have unintended consequences and provide openings to ill-minded folk.

    However, I would rather read a book in which the protagonist “does something” than watches the world fall.

      The hero in my book definitely ‘does something’ and boy does he make mistakes ( a little like me really.) After all they do say . . . write what you know. Thanks for commenting and checking out my blog syddent. My book is available on Amazon

      Why not check it out?
      Thanks again.
