Ability to Foresee The Future

Sometimes it is hard to look at things as they are and imagine how anything good could come out of it.

Who, looking at an egg, could imagine a magnificent eagle coming from it? An egg bears no resemblance to an eagle.

During World War II who could have foreseen that Japan and Germany would one day be friends and political-economic allies?

In my boyhood, the Soviet Union was "the evil empire" and our cold war enemy. Today the Soviet Union no longer exists and the "Iron Curtain" is ancient history. Who could have foreseen this?

Because none of us has the ability to foresee the future, we can never know enough to be hopeless. So if your situation is bad, and it looks like nothing good could possibly come out of it, hold on. Things can turn around
