Rules and Choices

Posted by

"I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do."
(Robert A. Heinlein)

A super quote to go with this beautifully framed and composed shot Glenn! It instantly brought back the lyrics of the old Five Man Electrical Band's sond Signs:

And the sign said, "Everybody welcome. Come in, kneel down and pray"
But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all, I didn't have a
penny to pay
So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own little sign
I said, "Thank you, Lord, for thinkin' 'bout me. I'm alive and doin' fine."
Wooo!

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

@Eric Cousineau: Thanks for the addition; you're right, this song's lyrics fit in well here.

So I am left wondering if you did or not. ;-)

True. How true! We are free, and morally responsible for whatever we do. We cannot force others to do the same; we must lead by example.
The perfect photo for the quote ... and yes, good song lyrics from Eric, too.

Neat shot of this old dock and its surrounds. I like those textures.

Great textures and grain patterns captured in the pier, which contrast nicely with the reflection off the water. We'd have one wonderful society if everyone lived by those words of Robert Heinlein!
