Via Tech Republic, Roger G. Johnston Ph.D.’s security maxims:

The following maxims explain why security issues are slow to be resolved:

  • Show-Me Maxim: No serious security vulnerability, including blatantly obvious ones, will be dealt with until there is overwhelming evidence and widespread recognition that adversaries have already catastrophically exploited it. In other words, “significant psychological (or literal) damage is required before any significant security changes will be made”.

Sad, but oh so very true.

This is what the LORD says:
“A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping,
Rachel weeping for her children
and refusing to be comforted,
because her children are no more.”

This is what the LORD says:
“Restrain your voice from weeping
and your eyes from tears,
for your work will be rewarded,”
declares the LORD .

“They will return from the land of the enemy.
So there is hope for your future,” declares the LORD .

“Your children will return to their own land.”

Иеремия 31:15-17
Так говорит Господь: голос слышен в Раме, вопль и горькое рыдание; Рахиль плачет о детях своих и не хочет утешиться о детях своих, ибо их нет.

Так говорит Господь: удержи голос твой от рыдания и глаза твои от слез, ибо есть награда за труд твой, говорит Господь, и возвратятся они из земли неприятельской.

И есть надежда для будущности твоей, говорит Господь, и возвратятся сыновья твои в пределы свои
