“Down there – he said – are people who will follow any dragon, worship any god, ignore any inequity. All out of a kind of humdrum, everyday badness. Not the really high, creative loathsomeness of the great sinners, but a sort of mass-produced darkness of the soul. Sin, you might say, without a trace of originality. They accept evil not because they say yes, but because they don’t say no.”
― Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!
Camarón que se duerme, se lo lleva la corriente. / The shrimp that sleeps is carried away by the current. Spanish proverb
It’s amazing what can happen while we’re not paying attention. Who knows how many opportunities you can miss with a complacent attitude? Stay "awake" if you don’t want to find yourself drifting far from your intended path.
