You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.
Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, butfor the heart to conquer it.

The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.
