Security Versus Adventure

Quotes and Notes #102, February 12

“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

Living in fear is counter-productive. We can live in fear of a powerful terrorist organization only to be struck down by a microscopic bacterium. To live life fully, we must be humorous and daring. We must be able to reach out to new adventures with great expectations, and we must be able to face daily adversities without fear. That is reason enough to practice optimism. Share a smile with your banker today.

Everything is going to be all right.

John P. Schulz
