quote of the day

Most people live, whether physically, intellectually or morally, in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul’s resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only his little finger.

-– William James

This is so true. Only when a person is faced with an extreme situation (ie. natural disaster, severe illness, etc.) are they forced to utilize more than that restricted circle. Most of us love our circle of comfort too much to extract ourselves outside of it for but a momemt.
