J. William Fulbright [Birthday Quote]

We must dare to think ‘unthinkable’ thoughts. We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world. We must learn to welcome and not to fear the voices of dissent. We must dare to think about ‘unthinkable things’ because when things become unthinkable, thinking stops and action becomes mindless.

J. William Fulbright, born April 9th 1905

    1. Based on the context I would think he means think of things that are considered ‘impossible’ or ‘unbelievable’, got to love translating older English usage into modern.
