STOP AND THINK – Man’s mind once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimension. (Oliver Wendell Holmes, 20th century U.S. Supreme Court justice)
The 19th century French writer, Victor Hugo, said, “No army can withstand the strength of an idea whose time has come.” Such ideas, once conceived, can never be forgotten. Moreover, Holmes indicates that such powerful ideas will stretch our mind so that we can never be the same. Great ideas push us to examine the thought further until it yields worthy results.
For as [a man] thinks in his heart, so is he. (Proverbs 23:7)
