Here’s to the sane ones,
the responsible, the mature,
the unsung heroes,
the pillars of society,
the ones who see what needs to be done and do it.
They’re not fond of recognition,
and they know the world is a messy place.
You can snub them, make fun of them, or ignore them.
About the only thing you can’t do is live your life without them.
They make the human race survive.
And while some may see them as the boring ones, we see love.
Because the people who are humble enough to serve
are the ones who hold the world together.
John D. Cook “Here’s to the Sane Ones“
For society to continue it needs entrepreneurs who are a little crazy and the steady and reliable who preserve traditions and do the equally important job of keeping calm and carrying on. Even entrepreneurs bent on changing the status quo need to take care not to break what’s working, to preserve the values that foster civil society, and to appreciate those that are slower to embrace change as providing an important balance.
