On a New Order

When I think of pushing forward with initiating new services and knowing that I will have many people shoot me down right away, I must remember the following:

Nicolo Machiavelli, 1513 (per Paul Ridker, MD):  It must be considered that there is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle, than to initiate a new order of things. For the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the old order, and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order, this lukewarmness arrising partly from fear and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not believe in anything new until they have had an actual experience of it.
