How many of our ancestors died 
eating poisonous plants in order to 
discover the edible ones? You know,
so I can eat store-bought blackberries 
on a winter morning.

Whatever it is you’re doing,
doubt and hesitation will nip at your heels, 
and others will say what they want, 
but please, try and remember:

Civilization lumbers forward on 
the shoulders of those 
who try.
