Quote for March 10, 2006

“Ask yourself for one moment what have been your feelings of the eve of some act involving courage, has it not felt something like this? I cannot do this. This is too much for me. I shall ruin myself if I take the risk. I cannot take the leap, it’s impossible. And then supposing you have done this impossible thing, do you not find afterwards that you possess yourself in a sense that you never had before? That there is more of you? So it is throughout life…you know “nothing ventured, nothing won” is true in every hour, it is the fiber of every experience that signs itself into the memory.” J. N. Figgis
