QotD: Security is a superstition


"I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; I will not refuse to do the something I can do. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature."
~ Helen Keller

  2. One of the harshest lessons I ever learned was that all organisms are one heartbeat away from death. The idea that we can take some action that eliminates the possibility of bad things happening to us is pure magical thinking; it's as realistic as thinking Santa brings presents to all good little boys and girls in one night!
