We pass through this world but once.
Few tragedies can be more extensive than the stunting of life,
few injustices deeper than the denial of an opportunity to strive or even to hope,
by a limit imposed from without, but falsely identified as lying within.
Stephen Jay Gould
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience
in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
You are able to say to yourself.
“I lived through this horror.
I can take the next thing that comes along.”
There is no such things as limits to growth,
because there are no limits to the human capacity
for intelligence, imagination, and wonder.
