Good morning everyone,
I hope that most of us are able to start Sunday positively and maybe the glorious sunshine will help with that.
I'm feeling quite a lot of negativity at the moment: not my own but towards that seeming myriad of people who are continuing to flout distancing and isolation rules and are congregating everywhere as they please.
Whilst they were all doing that, I was engaged in a long conversation with my granddaughter who was having a serious wobble at home, alone in her bedroom and wondering how she was going to get through her day. It took some time to cheer her up. It's something that all our community members are experiencing. But like my granddaughter, they are just getting on with it for our greater good and the opportunity to survive this crisis unscathed.
I can't say it's a topic I've ever had to find a quotation for. Either you are accustomed to obeying any necessary serious rules, and for minor infringements there's no need for much inspirational quotation.
So I had to hunt a little for something suitable.
Amazingly, (to me), there was an even distribution between those which urged people to follow rules, and those that suggested flouting them! A real education for me!
Anyway, eventually I came up with something that seems to fit the bill.
"It is a great delusion in those whose understanding has been darkened by self-love, to think that there is any obedience in the subject, who tries to draw the superior to what he wishes. - Saint Ignatius - (1491-1556).
It seems that, long term, little changes!
I hope you all enjoy your day, doing whatever keeps you safe and happy.
