The Eye Opener
Sunday, June 4, 2017

A split second separates the past, the present and the future. The course of history has been altered in a moment of decision on the part of one man. Inventions that have revolutionized our mode of living may have taken years to perfect, but the idea behind them was born in a flash of thought between the ticks of a clock.

In that great day when you determined that you had had enough, that you were whipped, the resolve took but a fraction of a second. But in that instant, you closed your past and opened your future.

A moment of thoughtlessness can put you back in the past again.
