Think About This: “Our reluctance to throw ourselves into life with all that we are — to abandon ourselves, come what may — is born of the fear we may not be enough to succeed. But the truth is that within us dwells more than we take ourselves to be . . . and only by leaping do we learn of unseen wings that open only in mid-air.” ~ Guy Finley
