"A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it."
(I've seen quotes only in the Religious Debate forum instead of the regular Religions & Beliefs, so I suppose I'm suppose to put my quote here.)

I can see it. . . but also, there are times when it is appropriate to go with the stream--as long as you know why you are doing it. I don't understand people who feel the need to contradict what others are saying or doing, just because they are afraid of being part of the majority. I think that sometimes it takes just as much intelligence and courage to go with the flow, in other words, if that flow is heading in the right direction. It takes intelligence and spirit to know what to do in varying situations--whether it means to flow with the stream, or swim against it.
