Direction of our lives… a quote from a surprising source

society

To my surprise, this thoughtful musing is not to be found on Google:


We seek to define our lives by the directions we take, by grasping the opportunities that present themselves and making a decision about which fork in the road to take. There is either good or bad, right or wrong. But there is no middle. Life is who we are, who we forgive, who we defend and protect. Do we choose a side? Or do we throw out the line in order to play in the middle? Do we straddle the fence between what is, and what should be?

For some, this is the course they choose, trying to find the delicate balance of interest that can never exist. They choose by not choosing. They defend a center which cannot be held. And in time, they define their lives by the directions they do not take.

1) Can you identify the origin of the quote above? (and yes, I do already know where it’s from)
2) What are your thoughts about it?
