Sayings of a Gadfly
by Max Maxwell

A woman said, “The Bible says that if you have enough faith, all things are possible.” 

The Gadfly said, “Do you see the chessboard before you?  Take the rook on the A1 Square; and move it to the A9 Square.” 

The woman said, “That is impossible, there is no A9 Square on which to place the rook.” 

The Gadfly said, “Neither is there any place for wishful thinking to be passing itself off as faith.  Faith is not a magic wand to do the bidding of our imaginations.  Faith is present when we have the insight to recognize false limitations for the illusions they are, combined with the strength to face real limitations with integrity and courage.”
