A Quote by Eric Johnson on change, culture, economics, friendship, god, growth, knowledge, lies, life, people, politics, reality, science, scientists, violence, and world

If there is one word which characterizes our world in this exciting last half of the twentieth century, the word is change. Change in political life - change in economic life - change is social life - change in personal life. Change is the hallmark of our times. It's not gradual, comfortable change. It is sudden, rapid, often violent. It touches and often disrupts whole cultures and hundreds of millions of people. Behind it all lies an explosive growth in scientific knowledge and accomplishment. Some 90 per cent of all the scientists who ever lived are living today and the total accumulation of scientific knowledge is doubling every ten years. But this is reality. If we remember that, then we will never flinch at change. We will adjust to it, welcome it, meet it as a friend and know it as God's will.
