What IS, It IS WHAT IS, Elusive!

 

Time as we know it is WHAT IS, like the truth, it IS!
We wake up, wonder what the day will bring.

Are the days set in stone?

Each day a wonder, each day means something
different or ELUSIVE! (the word of the day)
Examples, A Friday to the secular “Finally Friday.”
A religious person might feel yes, finally, but also see it as
“Fervent Friday,” the day Our Lord died.
A secular; Saturday = Self Saturday, a religious-minded would think
more in line with Saintly Saturday, and a little about self.
Then there are Sunny Sunday vs. Sacred Sunday.
Mournful Monday, Moral Monday, Tired Tuesday, Trinity Tuesday
Wake up Wednesday compared to Worthy Wednesday; the news of the day brings us to Tittle Tattle Thursday,
to the religious person would desire a Truthful Thursday.
Oh, how the weeks fly and indeed are ELUSIVE!

My Take on It!

Who originally said:

“The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good Men Do Nothing.”

Was It? John F. Kennedy, Edmund Burke, R. Murray Hyslop, Charles F. Aked, or John Stuart Mill? No one seems to know for sure.

My take on the quote is this:

Evil continues because good people condone it!
