Fly free. Reign supreme

Shun the demons of doubt.
Break loose the shackles of security.
Leap off the island of comfort,
into the ocean of chance.
Sailing the expanse of opportunity.
Just as history assures,
indeed fortune favours the brave.

I deleted the comment above without clicking on the link. It looked like spam, possibly a virus. If it wasn't please let me know.

It wasn't! It was a Calvin and Hobbs cartoon!

Apologies for deleting your comment. I didn't realise what Calvin and Hobbes was and the link looked suspect.

How did you find a comic strip so directly relevant?! Perhaps you are a Calvin and Hobbes fan(atic)?

I am.

Google this:

"You've taught me nothing except how to cynically manipulate the system."

I'm thinking of becoming a teacher.

I plan on responding to the previous comment after reading this book: 'Three Cups of Tea', by Greg Mortenson. I think there is something in this for me; I love mountains, facilitating education could possibly be my calling in life and, well, as they say, "make tea not war". :)>

I should be starting it some time in the next few days insha-Allah.

Still reading this book. It's pretty good but longer than expected. They should turn it into a movie!
