Take a chance

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor.   Catch the trade winds in your sales.  Explore. Dream. Discover."

Mark Twain

Take a side....

WE must always take sides.   Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.  Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.

Wisdom from Publilius Syrus

Publilius Syrus, was a Latin writer, best known for his sententiae. He was a Syrian who was brought as a slave to Italy, but by his wit and talent he won the favor of his master, who freed and educated him.

Three of my favorite quotes are:

  • I often regret that I have spoken; never that I have been silent.
  • Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
  • To do two things at once is to do neither.

Living - Thoreau #getoutoftheboat

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately..... and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. Henry David Thoreau

Be in the arena - TR

It's not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena...who, at best, knows in the end the triumph of great achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. So that his place will never be with those cold timid souls who know neither victory or defeat. Theodore Roosevelt
