Danger, danger

I'm in the midst of several really good books right now. One of them is John Maxwell's book Be a People Person.

I found a quote that sums up pretty well everything when it comes to that lingering question of will I get injured if I go running today? Will a car run me down? Will a hunter (or some other crazy person shoot me?
OK, perhaps you're thinking that I've got an overactive imagination, but that's why I win poetry slams.

Anyhow, the quote is from Helen Keller:"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."
