It isn't the experience of today that drives men mad. It is the remorse of something that happened yesterday, and the dread of what tomorrow may disclose-Dr. Wayne Dyer in "Your Erroneous Zones"
Very little purpose is served by asking questions after being struck by Earthquake. Also no use grumbling about a dam or a nuclear power plant after it has been completed, and is about to be commissioned. They are mighty people and will do it irrespective of how much you oppose. Project entrepreneurs will always say the projects are safely designed. So far people believed the engineers who said dams and nuclear power plants could be designed and constructed to withstand the strongest earthquakes affecting them. Fukushima has proved that this claim is not true. Still we must understand the kind of questions we should ask in between.
The biggest offender is one who earned his reputation in one area and steps out of his area of specialty to make judgment in another. -Dr. LLOYD S CLUFF
