  • Quote of the Day

    “One dies slowly who becomes a slave to habits, takes no chances, avoids passion, does not risk uncertainty . . . who quits before getting started, complains about bad luck, doesn’t travel or read or dream, does not trust, does not dare try, does not love . . . the opposite is to be alive.”

    - Pablo Neruda
