This is one of my absolutte favourite quotes in all time. It’s relatively simple to understand and interpret. It’s a comment, logical argument against capital punishment and war.
I think of the Iraq war: One of the reasons President George W. Bush Jr. declared war on Saddam Hussein was that he was murdering his own people, the Iraqi. I tend to believe that the argument is anti-american in every way as the USA is famous for it’s warmongering, loose guncontrol and high level of capital punishment.

The point of this quote is quite simple. It’s common to deal with problems during ones life, and some of these problems may put us in a wrong direction. Addictions that overwhelm one or you ‘hang with you wrong crowd’. But even if you’re on the right track, you have to move even if you’re frightened to go in the wrong direction. Otherwise you will end up doing nothing. And doing nothing automatically puts you off track.
