People are afraid of the future!
« on: June 20, 2009, 05:35:33 PM »

"People are afraid of the future, the unknown. If a person faces up to it, and takes the dare of the future, s/he can have some control over his/her destiny. That's an exciting idea to me. Better than waiting with everybody else to see what's going to happen." ---John Glenn, Jr. astronaut, U.S. Senator

If you create a habit, you create character.
If you create character, you create a destiny." --Emile Herzog, French novelist

Dear Shibli,

It’s really good to get an indication about uncertainty understanding from your end! Certainly we can have a nice discussion about uncertainty and creativity. May be fear with future which is unknown helping people to live this world creatively.

I have every doubt about so called certainty or fearless future that can create anything positive or harmful!

Take chances. make your own work, take pride in it, seize the moment."
