Wanderful Words No. 13: Danger is Everywhere, Push on Through

by Ekua on January 15, 2010 in wanderful words

This week, Lauren Quinn‘s post on Cuban national heros inspired me to find this quote:

“In truth, men speak too much of danger. Let others be terrified by the natural and healthy risks of life! We shall not be frightened! Poison sumac grows in a hard-working man’s field, the serpent hisses from its hidden den, and the owl’s eye shines in the belfry, but the sun goes on lighting the sky, and truth continues marching across the earth unscathed.”

– Jose Marti

No problem, your Cuba posts have been awesome 🙂 I found this quote through the link on your post to a Jose Marti quote site. We definitely need to find time to meet up in the next month or so!
