Vision without action is a daydream. Action with without vision is a nightmare.
~ Japanese Proverb ~
When talking about society's many problems and issues, I've run into a lot of people who will tell you everything that is wrong with the status quo and how they have the perfect solution. If given enough time, they'll bend your ear off. However, if the suggestion is made that they get involved with the process to affect change, all of a sudden their interest wanes. They can provide a million and one reasons why they choose to twiddle their thumbs from the sidelines.

In essence, all they really want to do is bitch and moan. It's a lot more fun to castigate those who are doing the actual work. And then they wonder why things keep moving in the direction they say they don't like?


  1. Actually in this case, you could say "to effect change," to bring it about. (Sorry, copy editor attack--aloha nui loa.)

  2. Maybe I'll quit using those two words altogether. I can never seem to use them correctly.
