Never Too Late

It is never too late to give up our fears and prejudices. No way of thinking or doing, however ancient, can be trusted without proof.

What everybody echoes or in silence passes by as true today may turn out to be falsehood tomorrow, mere smoke of opinion, which some had trusted for a cloud that would sprinkle rain on their fields.

What other people say you cannot do, you try and find that you can.

Old deeds for old people, and new deeds for new.

Henry David Thoreau
