Question of the Day #325

Doc, a regular at the pub, everyone once in a while comes up with a quote that makes me think. Last night he said:

"Basic moral decisions have two components, the right decision and how fast you do it. It stretches the soul."

I never thought about that - acting right away versus pondering a decision. Maybe you say you're going to do something, but what if you never get around to it? Does acting quickly impact the overall right decision in the end? And is it the pondering that stretches the soul or the fast action?



  1. Doing something too quickly can have negative results. Thinking things out clearly seems like the logical way to go. But doing nothing at all is probably the worst thing you can do.

    Dang, Suzanne -- this is a hard one. LOL!

  2. I used to make quick decisions that burned me. Now I make decisions by thinking it through. Doc sounds like a smart man.....
