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, as quoted by Donna Shirley
We know that equality of individual ability has never existed and never will, but we do insist that equality of opportunity still must be sought.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
