In the spirit combining one of my blogs (http://chexed.blogsopt.com/) into this one - the other one is now mostly inactive: I'm going to post a "one liner" which is something I've posted a lot of there.
Sometimes it takes being hated to be loved. Sometimes people don't like a decision you may make, but in times passing or in ages to come, people may see the wisdom of your reasoning.
To give you a fair warning, in case you've never seen my one liners before; it's rare that they're actually one line, but they're always short. Sometimes they're serious, sometimes they're other.
Edited: Everything in the paragraph with the bold sentence except the bold sentence was added on July 12, 2009.
