Got An Idea? …Hold On To It.

“All of our days are numbered.

We cannot afford to be idle.

To act on a bad idea
is better than to not act at all…

…because the worth of the idea
never becomes apparent until you do it.

Sometimes this idea can be
the smallest thing in the world,

a little flame that you hunch over
and cup with your hand

and pray will not be extinguished
by all the storm that howls about it.

If you can hold on to that flame,
great things can be constructed around it

that are massive and powerful
and world-changing…

…all held up by the tiniest of ideas.”

― Nick Cave
(from the film “20,000 Days on Earth“)
