In order to grasp the reality, we must see the possibilities.

But inaction itself is a kind of action, and it has consequences. Consistently and absolutely maintained, inaction would necessarily lead to swift ruin , it would be a form of suicide.

In my situation I bear responsibility for what occurs because I do not intervene , if I can do something and I don't do it, I am guilty of the consequences of my inaction.

Karl Jaspers

Reason is like an open secret that can become known to anyone at any time , it is the quiet space into which everyone can enter through his own thought.
