To arrive at a just estimate of a renowned man's character one must judge it by the standards of his time, not ours.

Beyond your comforts

Venture out beyond where your comforts dwell. Go to the places where your fears live.

Climb outside the walls that enclose your certainties. Explore those territories where you’ll encounter realities you’ve never known before.

Some of your best possibilities are those you don’t even know about yet. Get yourself out where you can discover what they are.

Go where your skills can be tested to their limits. Go where your assumptions can be toppled, where your strengths can be honed.

You’ve learned your way so well around this community, this job, this ideology, it’s no longer a challenge. Give yourself the exhilaration of exploring something completely new.

Introduce yourself to the people, circumstances, and ideas beyond those you know so well. They will benefit greatly from the new connection, and so will you.

— Ralph Marston
