Noble offers us this insight into history:
God rarely uses a pessimist to change the world…but satan OFTEN uses them to discourage those who want to change the world!
I suppose he hasn’t read Martin Luther’s biography, nor Washington’s, nor Lincoln’s.
On the other hand, Hitler and Lenin were quite the optimists.
In which case, let me posit a fifth Pajamas Axiom: People who say they want to change the world should be strongly discouraged from doing so.
