Quote by Jeanette Winterson
It's true that heroes are inspiring, but mustn't they also do some rescuing if they are to be worthy of their name? Would Wonder Woman matter if she only sent commiserating telegrams to the distressed?
This quote highlights the importance of action in heroism. While heroes can be a source of inspiration, their true value lies in their ability to actively rescue and help others. Simply expressing sympathy or offering kind words is not enough to truly make a difference. The mention of Wonder Woman in the quote suggests that heroes need to engage in tangible acts of heroism rather than just providing emotional support. Thus, heroism requires not only empathy and inspiration but also decisive actions that have a tangible impact on those in need.
In the things that really matter--our covenants, the commandments, and following the prophet--we need to be completely united. In the non-essentials, we have our agency to handle things as we see fit. But, in all things, regardless of whether we make the same choices or not, we are to treat each other with dignity and respect, both of which are evidences of charity in our hearts and lives.
Don't they know science doesn't work like that? You can't just order scientific breakthroughs. They happen when you are looking at something you've been working on for years and suddenly see a connection you never noticed before, or when you're looking for something else altogether. Sometimes they even happen by accident. Don't they know you can't get a scientific breakthrough just because you want one?
