"pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks. perhaps this person will never be dissappointed or disillusioned; perhaps she won't suffer the way people do when they have a dream to follow. but when that person looks back and at some point everyone looksback -she will hear her heart saying. "what have you done with the miracles that God planted in your days? what have you done with the talents God bestowed you? you buried yourself in a cave because
you were fearful of losing your talents.so this is your heritage: the certainty that you wasted your life."
