Laziness & Cowardice | Quote by Immanuel Kant Regarding Way too Many of You


Laziness and cowardice are the reasons such a large part of humanity, long after nature has pronounced them free of external leadership (they have come of age), nevertheless happily remain minors their whole life long; and why it is so easy for others to set themselves up as their guardians. It is so comfortable to be a minor. If I have a book which reasons for me, a partner who has a conscience for me, a doctor who decides my diet for me, and so forth, then I don't need to take the trouble myself.

~Immanuel Kant (1724 - 1804)


~~*~~
Instead of "minors" in this quote,
I substitute "sheep."
It's arguably more effective.
