Safer Quote of the Day

Welcome to these Safer Quotes of the Day from my large collection of positive, romantic, and funny quotes.

Avoiding danger is no safer
in the long run than outright exposure.
The fearful are caught as often as the bold.
- Helen Keller

Security is mostly a superstition.
It does not exist in nature,
nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.

Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.
To those who say, "But times are different now,"
I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.
What has changed is our attitudes.
In those years, a broken leg from falling off a swing
or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.

Expediency asks the question - is it politic?

that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular;
but one must take it BECAUSE it is right.

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort
of feeling safe with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,

knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."
- Elizabeth Warren

and loudly proclaiming, "Wow! What a Ride!"
- Hunter S. Thompson

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth,

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men
who walked through the huts comforting others,

They offer sufficient proof that everything
can be taken from a man but one thing:

to choose one's own way.
- Viktor E. Frankl
