John Archibald Wheeler Quote
As we make our way into the world of tomorrow, with its endless frontiers and its opportunities for a deeper and richer civilization than ever before, we will meet and overcome many a new risk. But we know that the greatest risk of all is what it always has been — to be born — for then we are sure to die.
