It’s Tuesday. Go for it!

Out-Smart

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”  ~Helen Keller

  1. It has taking me a lifetime to learn this, but it is getting more and more fun every day! Though I’m not ready to skydive yet (I have this thing about heights, lol), but I now love paddle-boarding and I’m ready to try skate-skiing! It’s just getting funner and funner! (Poor grammar, I know, but true!!! 😂) Anyway, THANK YOU for this truth and word of encouragement! Don’t think I’d skydive without a helmet though… not that I ever will! 🤔

  2. I remember Helen Keller. She could not hear nor see. Yet, she was brilliant. We can quote her all day long and not get bored. What an amazing lady. Thanks for the reminder.

    Love the Helen Keller quote! I use that one a lot in advising people to take
    a new job or consider moving to a new city,

    Helen states the obvious that we often overlook: Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. (Not that I would go outside in a Category 4 hurricane. Avoidance and foolishness are two different things!)

    Brilliant and true! Or brilliant because it is true. It reminds me of one of my favorite Benjamin Franklin quotes: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

    Gee, that little guy sure is smart. Good thing he can’t afford a breastplate. Still hope for us, I guess.
