I have written a few farewell emails in my professional career but all have been pretty conversative compared to the one sent below by a former colleague.
I wish you all inner peace, a satisfying career and a clear conscience.
Parting thought found at Isaiah 33:1.
“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”–Philosopher Edmund Burke
“They came first for the Communists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist;
And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist;
And then they came for the Jews, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew;
And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up.” — Martin Niemoller
Damn! So much for towing the line and staying positive.
