Monday Morning Quote - Gerald Burill's Aphorism

Monday Morning Quote - Gerald Burill's Aphorism 

"The difference between a rut and a grave is the depth"

This famous aphorism comes from Gerald Burill, a once Episcopal Bishop of Chicago. I think it warns that laziness and negativity is habit-forming.

This also serves as an excellent example of the aphorism form - a brief, witty statement that shows a truth (or opinion) of the world. A snap-shot of one's philosophical world view.

I could say more, but I'll let an aphorism be an aphorism.
