Words of Wisdom

"Many risks fail because they were not taken in time. Too many risks are postponed until unnecessarily elaborate preparations are made. This does not mean that one should say, "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" That is foolish and self-destructive. . . . But don't sit back waiting for the perfect moment. It almost never comes.

- Joan of Arc
