Vigilance Is The Price We Pay

“We think we’ve come so far. Torture of heretics, burning of witches is all ancient history and then, before you can blink an eye, suddenly it threatens to start all over again.

Villains who twirl their mustaches are easy to spot. Those who clothe themselves in good deeds are well-camoflauged.

Someone like that will always be with us, waiting for the right climate in which to flourish. Spreading fear in the name of righteousness.

Vigilance, Mr. Worf. That’s the price we continually have to pay.”

-Jean-Luc Picard

Be The Miracle

Parting a soup is not a miracle, Bruce. It’s a magic trick. Now, a single mom who works two full-time jobs, and still finds the time to pick up her kid at soccer practice, that’s a miracle. A teenager that says ‘no’ to drugs and ‘yes’ to an education, that’s a miracle. You want to see a miracle, son? Be the miracle.”

-Morgan Freeman playing God in Bruce Almighty
