best. quote. ever.

This by the holy father, shamlessly lifted from the comments on barbie’s blog.
“I guess risk comes much easier with age. To stare victory and defeat in the eye, and treat both imposters the same? Until you’ve lost it all, and come back again, there is no perspective. The threat of punishment is a much greater deterrent than the punishment itself.
So all you [people] that are scared of getting hurt, go for it! Get hurt!
Be outrageous! Ask for, shoot for the impossible. Small dreams are for safe mediocre people. Big dreams are for risk takers.”
Just in case anyone was wondering, my dad totally rocks.
