Thought for the day

From George Gilder (via Amanda Witt at Wittingshire):

The tale of human life is less the pageant of unfolding rationality and purpose envisioned by the Enlightenment than a saga of desert wanderings and brief bounty, the endless dialogue between man and God, between alienation and providence, as we search for the ever-rising and receding promised land, which we can see most clearly, with the most luminous logic, when we have the faith and courage to leave ourselves open to chance and fate.

Reinhold Niebuhr summed up our predicament:

Nothing worth doing is completed in one lifetime.
Therefore we must be saved by hope.
Nothing true or beautiful makes
complete sense
in any context of history.
Therefore we must be saved by faith.
Nothing we do, however virtuous,
can be accomplished alone.
Therefore we are saved by love.

These are the fundamental laws of economics, business, technology, and life. In them are the secrets of wealth, and poverty.
