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.

To keep our faces toward change and

behave like free spirits in the presence of fate

is undefeatable.

~ Helen Keller, who knew of what she spake.

With thanks for the heads up on this one to yoga teacher Ashley Turner:
