Far be it from me to tinker with the historically well-chosen words of Martin Luther King but a nip here and a tuck there and they'd be fit for Sir Clive Woodward's hapless purposes.
The great man, Martin Luther King that is, once warned his courageous followers about the importance of knowing the difference between their own rectitude and misplaced conviction.
"When you are right," he said. "You cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative." How resonant those words are today.
Woodward's conservatism - he picked 12 of his English World Cup winners in the British Lions side that collapsed before the All Blacks had even finished the haka - was his major wrong-doing and one for which he was punished severely.
The sight of an aged backrow and out of form backs trying so pitifully to wage war against the most fearsome oval-ball proposition on the planet, to the point that it could end up being the epitaph of a strategist and manager who once held the world in his hands.
Yesterday's announcement that he had made 11 changes, four positional, to the starting XV and 'dragonised' his Lions flirts with the other end of the spectrum. His newfound radicalism could be best thing he's ever done.
Seven new faces have been introduced into the side. Welshmen Gavin Henson and Shane Williams come into the backs and are joined by compatriot Ryan Jones and Steve Thompson, Donncha O'Callaghan, Simon Easterby and Lewis Moody in the pack.
Jonny Wilkinson reverts to fly-half, Gareth Thomas moves into outside centre from the wing and Josh Lewsey and Jason Robinson have swapped places with the Wasps man stepping back to his best position at full-back.
In short the team looks a lot more adventurous and finally resembles the one most people who came within a country mile of watching the Six Nations, would expect. Finally Woodward seems to have prized form above reputation.
There are as many players who won the Grand Slam with Wales as there are from the Red Rose army that finished fourth, six, with three Irishmen completing the starting line-up.
Scotland is once again without representation although Gordon Bulloch, assuming he is fit, can consider himself unfortunate not to have ousted Shane Byrne for a place on the bench.
Presumably Woodward believes Chris Cusiter is too similar a scrum-half to Dwayne Peel and for this reason has opted for the greater physical presence and experience of Matt Dawson.
Whether the coach should be applauded for his boldness is difficult to say. When he woke up yesterday morning, with Lions' 109-6 win over Manawatu to cogitate over, he had two options.
Firstly he could have continued to indulge his predilection for tactical caution and raged against the dying of the light maintaining his belief in Plan A, first, second and last.
Thankfully he made the tacit admission that he had been wrong - he can't hide behind the fact his players didn't perform because he picked and prepared them and is getting handsome remuneration to do so - and accepted the evidence of his own eyes.
Everyone knows Shane Williams should have been playing from the outset. He had both the form and pedigree to show that he could hurt the All Blacks having run them ragged in the last World Cup.
They also knew from the Six Nations that if Robinson had to play it could not be at full-back. Lewsey had proved himself a better candidate for the No 15 shirt within ten minutes of the tour starting when he scored against Bay of Plenty.
And Wilkinson may be short of match fitness having had two years away from the international scene through injury, but he has to play in his preferred fly-half slot.
Henson was a difficult choice.
Woodward's concerns about his suitability are reasonable. He hasn't illuminated the Land of the Long White Cloud in the way he did the Millennium Stadium and would have been a high risk pick.
No less so though, than the pre-Test decision to change their lineout calls amidst concern that the New Zealanders had cracked their code.
Prop Graham Rowntree admitted yesterday that they had committed suicide by doing so as they went on to lose eight of their own throws including a crucial one before half-time when Ali Williams picked-off Byrne and barrelled over for a try.
That, and the fact Woodward's conservatism flew in the face of all logical reason, severely hurt the Lions' chances.
Saturday's team does not do so and, ridiculous, as it may sound after such a defeat, the fact that it is stuffed full of in-form players with points to prove a radical reversal of fortune is not out of the question.
