A Quote by John William Gardner on achievement, belief, change, laws, machines, money, people, problems, solution, and voting

Some people seem to believe that for each problem there is a solution readily available - a solution that can be promptly achieved by passing a law and voting some money. I think of this as the vending machine concept of social change. Put a coin in the machine and out comes a piece of candy. If there is a social problem, pass a law and out comes a solution.

John William Gardner (1912 -)
