“When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.”

In the Futurama episode where Bender meets God, this quote is from God itself: it means that God's intervention in human life should be light-touch. I take it to mean: when you do something the way it's supposed to be done, the best possible way, nobody will notice because it will just seem part of the “natural order” of things. In other words: doing things wrong is immediately noticeable, while the contrary is not.

Although I wholeheartedly agree when I think of this quote, I can't help but think: Doesn't this leave you in the shadow of someone else who does the right thing but goes out of their way to let the world know?
