The price of innovation

I love this quote by Scott Nearing:

“The majority will always be for caution, hesitation, and the status quo – always against creation and innovation. The innovator – he who leaves the beaten track – must therefore always be a minortarian – always be an object of opposition, scorn, hatred. It is part of the price he must pay for the ecstasy that accompanies creative thinking and acting.”

~Scott Nearing (From Loving and Leaving the Good Life by Helen Nearing)
