Ships in the Harbor are Safe...

John Shedd, an American professor and author, wrote this in his book Salt From My Attic:

A ship in harbor is safe, but that's not why ships are built.

It's not a point that needs to be belaboured, but I believe we can all take a tip from it. Don't stay in your harbor of safety ... go out to explore new worlds, even if you fear a flat world, or dragons that may eat you alive ... if you don't, you'll never know what was really out there, but if you do, you may discover a whole new world.
