Henry Ford

Man maintains his balance, poise, and sense of security only as he is moving forward.
Maxwell Maltz

The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was, nor forward to what it might be, but living in the present and accepting it as it is now.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
