A Ship Is Safe


A Ship is Safe

 A ship is safe  in harbour, but that’s not what ships are for.”

William G.T. Shedd

It is easy to talk about courage when the sun is shining and you are surrounded by a support network that strengthens your resolve.  In fact, courage is often masked by “group think.”  We feel security within community.  At times, it is easier to stop asking questions, to accept conventional wisdom, and to forget to exercise our minds altogether.  Yet, we are at our best when we embrace the adventure and chose courage as our steady and secure companion.

Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace.”

Victor Hugo
