Are you enjoying the summer heat, or hiding indoors, to avoid it? This week’s quote is about a different type of heat — the type of heat that you apply, when you need things done!
Monday Quote and Poster
When you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat.
The quote came from a speech that Ronald Reagan gave in 1984, and you can read the full text here.
Reagan was talking about criminals, in that section of the speech, but we could all use a little heat sometimes, to inspire us to get moving.
Whether you need some tough talk, or not, it’s Monday, and the start of a new week, so I hope that motivates us to get lots done!
The Quote in Context
Here is the paragraph from Reagan’s speech, in which he used the quote:
We have a comprehensive crime bill to correct this. It would put an end to the era of coddling criminals, and it’s been passed by the Senate. But the legislation is bottled up in the House. Now, maybe it’s time they heard from a few of you — a few million of you. You know, you don’t have to make them see the light; just make them feel the heat. I hope you realize that in my comments about some of the shortcomings of the Congress, believe me, tonight present company is excepted.
