Thought of the Day

"I had once believed that we were all masters of our fate—that we could mould our lives into any form we pleased... I had overcome deafness and blindness sufficiently to be happy, and I supposed that anyone could come out victorious if he threw himself valiantly into life's struggle. But as I went more and more about the country I learned that I had spoken with assurance on a subject I knew little about. I forgot that I owed my success partly to the advantages of my birth and environment...

Now, however, I learned that the power to rise in the world is not within the reach of everyone."

"People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant."

~ Helen Keller
