An (Un)Rhetorical Question

Posted by Shelley on Sep 1, 2009 in Uncensored Shelley |

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.  -George Bernard Shaw

A RHETORICAL QUESTION for myself and anyone else who reads this:  Are you reasonable or unreasonable?  Are you part of the solution or part of the problem?  Is it really possible for the ENTIRE WORLD and EVERYTHING around a person to revolve around oneself?

My answer is NO (and I realize now I did not ask a rhetorical question if I answered it out loud on this blog).  The entire world, our circumstances and everyone we come into contact with will not revolve around us.   And if one thinks it can, then that person needs to recognize some irrational and selfish behavior and seek some help to resolve some serious issues that need to be addressed.  Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man (or woman).

If you (or me for that matter), are being are unreasonable, progress cannot occur.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

Shelley:
Your reasoning sounds very reasonable to me. Have a great day, Friend.
