An idea whose time has come may yet run out of time
Simply having an idea whose time has come does not make you unstoppable. You have to back it with an unremitting honesty of purpose, untiring persistence in making it relevant to the people and age you belong to and stake everything you have on its success for others. You do not need just vision or just courage or just talent and skill, but all of them together, plus honesty. Not many have it in them to carry all these in the requisite measure.Thats how we see so many ideas whose time had come run out of time , thanks largely to the empty exuberance or even arrogance of its authors and followers -- most of thought that had hit upon a personal treasure in just coming across an idea whose time had come.
