“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
― Rob Siltanen
G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F…. An elderly woman was returning home from a Thursday mid-week service at her local church. As she unlocked her door, an intruder startled her. She caught the man in the very act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled, ‘STOP! Acts 2:38!’
The burglar stopped in his tracks.
The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.
As the officer handcuffed the man to take him to gaol, he asked the burglar, ‘Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was quote a scripture to you.’
‘Scripture?’ replied the burglar. ‘I thought the lady had an axe and two 38’s!’
