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?
