    Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.
    —H.G. (Herbert George)

    Very early in our children’s lives we will be forced to realize that the “perfect” untroubled life we’d like for them is just a fantasy. In daily living, tears and fights and doing things we don’t want to do are all part of our human ways of developing into adults.
    Fred Rogers (20th century)

    My life I never held but as a pawn
    To wage against thine enemies’ nor fear to lose it,
    Thy safety being motive.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
