From “The Human Condition: A User’s Manual” by Arnold Kunst
In 1900 everybody knew there was no way a contraption could be built that could hold a man and propel itself into the air and fly. Fifty years later, everybody knew no man could run a mile in less than four minutes. Ten years later, everybody knew man could never walk on the moon. Yesterday you and I knew we would reach for the things within our grasp, and no further. Today we are called to make miracles happen and take the whole thing for granted. And when I think of ten, twenty years from now, I can hardly sit still!
