You're not obligated to win. You're obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day.
-- Marian Wright Edelman

You are not safe. You never will be.

Danger surrounds you all the time. There are dangers you can see, invisible dangers, obvious dangers, and dangers you’ll never know about.

You can mitigate some of the dangers to some extent. You can take reasonable, proven, effective precautions.

But without question the biggest danger to your experience of life is not some external threat. The biggest danger, the biggest risk comes if you are duped into thinking you can avoid all risk.

Because by attempting to avoid every risk you miss out on the adventure of living. By seeking to save yourself from everything you end up with nothing.

Whatever you have achieved, whatever fulfillment you have experienced, your courage has enabled you to do so. Keep living with that courage, and despite all the dangers, keep living true and well.

— Ralph Marston
