Quote of the Day
We fear to know the fearsome and unsavory aspects of ourselves, but we fear even more to know the godlike in ourselves.
To give birth is a fearsome thing; there is no hating the child one has borne even when injured by it.
In practice, the ocean is the world's wildest place because of both its fearsome natural danger and how easy it is out there to slip from the boundaries of law and civilization that seem so firm ashore.
