The Safest Course


Florence (Firenze)

Every life decision carries some risk.   We weigh the pros and cons; balance the effort against a promised prize.  Even though we want to live boldly, we are likely to favour the safest course.  Perhaps the safest course allows us to excel beyond our imagination. Michelangelo once said, “The promises of this world are, for the most part, vain phantoms; and to confide in one’s self, and become something of worth and value is the best and safest course.”
