Mark Twain - "The radical of one century is the conservative of the next. The radical invents the views. When he has worn them out the conservative adopts them."
Not the first time I have quoted the one and only Mark Twain.......This statement of his is, I believe, the bare truth! Wondering if this thought of his was considered radical at that time? ;-) Now you know why some geniuses who weren't understood by society were stated to be 'ahead' of their times... :-)
