Finding Direction: Prologue 1.0.7
There are no prescriptive actions in Living As Though There Is A Tomorrow – each of us decides what to do moment by moment. First come thinking and wishing (as Aldo Leopold says), then aiming (as Henry David Thoreau says); then come specific actions and their natural consequences. Let’s talk about our long-term goals and the consequences of our thinking and wishing in order to find the direction to go. Let’s see where the pathways lead, discover what our choices are, and then use our individual freedom to decide on our course of action.
Without Words We Cannot Think
“Life is to be entered upon with courage.” Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859)
