If we are intended for great ends, we are called to great hazards.
The problem with this, John Henry, is that if we are not intended for great ends we can presumably save ourselves the great hazards. But if we want to be great (what else would are we trying to achieve – greatness doesn’t necessarily mean worldly success, does it?) we have no choice but to risk the great hazards – according to you – only to be destined to fail.
Still, it’s a thought worth pondering. It just needs a little unpacking, that’s all 🙂
