Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.

Do we value privacy in any real way? Thinking about blogs, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace... all these suggest we value exposure rather more. And instead of challenging this transformation, as they are supposed to - certainly at the more thoughtful edges of the art - novelists are buying into it wholesale.
Guy Gavriel Kay
We pay a price when we deprive children of the exposure to the values, principles, and education they need to make them good citizens.
Sandra Day O'Connor

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

I had always looked down on sociology as this arriviste discipline. It didn't have the noble history of English and history as a subject. But once I had a little exposure to it, I said, 'Hey, here's the key. Here's the key to understanding life and all its forms.'
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
