When Noah started to build an arc when there was no sign of rain, every one thought he was crazy. No one laughed when the rains came and Noah sailed away.
When John Yudkin tried to warn people about the dangers of sugar in 1972, everyone laughed at him. Today he’s seen as a prophet
When doctors claimed that smoking was dangerous in the 1950s, everyone discerned them. Now every packet contains warnings.
History is full of moments where people’s ideas seemed crazy at the time, but later we discover that the reverse is true once the fullness of time unfolds. Though the characters and the context will change, history has a habit of repeating itself, or as Mark Twain put it:
“History Doesn’t Repeat Itself, but it Often Rhymes”.
Wherever you are at this point in time, always remember that freedom comes from within. You can chose to return to a place of freedom whenever you chose to.
Let me leave you with some wise words from the late Steve Jobs, Co-Founder of Apple.
‘Cheers to the crazy, the outsiders, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round dowels in the square holes.
Those who see things different, they don’t like rules and they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote, disagree with them, glorify or despise them, pretty much the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things, they push the human race forward.
And when some despise them as crazy people, we see the genius in them. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.’
