Throw caution to the wind! Risk being your whole, unadulterated, unprotected, awesome self!

from Edna St. Vincent Millay:

“My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends —
It gives a lovely light!”


“Safe upon the solid rock the ugly houses stand:
Come and see my shining palace built upon the sand!”
