See if you got it right

This week I posed a number of questions and I said I would give the answers on Friday to enable you see whether or not your own answer was correct or not.

Some people got the answers right. Some did not.

In the post If you are brilliant read this, the double-edged sword I talk about is love. However, there are other double-edged swords, for instance, words, money, ambition etc. Each of them can be a double-edged sword in the sense that they can bring good and they can bring evil.

Love is something excellent; but it has also been the cause of sorrow, frustration, and even the death of many.

The second question is in the post Who said this I wanted you to tell me who was the author of the quote “If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could then better judge what to do, and how to do it.”

Congratulations to Atgofion who got the answer right.

This quote comes from the House Divided Speech by Abraham Lincoln on the 16th of June 1858. He was addressing more than 1000 delegates at the Republican State Convention in Springfield, Illinois. He was his party’s candidate for the U.S. Senate.

This quote has stood the test of time. If we do not know where we are going, how can we determine how to get there? It calls for good planning in order to better do what we want to do.

It is important to remember this when you want to do or achieve anything.
