"They also serve who only stand and wait. Or lie down and wait. Or just sit in their office chair, staring blankly at the wall." - John Milton (paraphrased)
Our burden is to take bold, dramatic actions. Should those fail, your burden is to suffer bold, dramatic consequences.
Those who demand we all do more with less somehow always end up on the more side of the ledger.
