How many opportunities come along? If you wait for the right one, that’s wrong, because it may never be right, and what have you got to lose? Even if it’s a disaster, you’ve tried, you’ve learned something, you’ve had an adventure. And that doesn’t mean you can’t do it again. – Edward McCabe

A man becomes like those whose society he loves. – Hindu proverb
