Polls-Public Opinion Leadership

I wonder how far Moses would have gone if he'd taken a poll in Egypt.

What would Jesus Christ have preached if he'd taken a poll in Israel?

Where would the Reformation have gone if Martin Luther had taken a poll?

It isn't polls or public opinion of the moment that counts. It's right and wrong and leadership-men with fortitude, honesty and a belief in the right that makes epochs in the history of the world.
