A Quote by Helen Adams Keller on life, nature, security, danger, risk, and adventure

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.
