Quotations of the months. April 2010.

“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

“Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.’ Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.”~Napoleon Hill

“There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.” ~Desiderius Erasmus
