The true means of being misled is to believe oneself finer than the others.

Possible things

When you take risks you won’t always get positive results. But when you avoid taking risks you’ll never get any results at all.

You can’t be certain about what will happen tomorrow until it happens, tomorrow. Yet the only time you can act is right now, today.

Pretty much never will you get access to a sure thing that has any significant value. However, every moment of every day is filled with possible things.

Life’s most consequential advances are built not on what’s guaranteed, but on what’s possible. What’s possible has been good enough for everyone who has ever lived, and it’s certainly good enough for you.

Get yourself well informed, mix in some diligence and common sense. Then take a chance on what’s possible.

Not every possible thing you attempt will come to fruition. Yet when you persist, enough of them will.

— Ralph Marston
