Dare to be a fool

I saw a documentary about Swedish artist Amanda Bergman and her band Amason. She and her husband combine music and running a farm. Impossible, many would say. But they try, and she comments on that by saying:

Nothing happens unless you’re a fool sometimes.

So true! A fool — according to others.

Where is the joy and progress in always being wise and playing it safe? Where would the world be today if it weren't for brave souls who went with their gut instead of reason? How much progress would have been lost if no one had been willing to face adversity?

Dare to be a fool!
