On taking risks
"It's very easy to say no to leaving the house. I'm happy with what I got. No, I'm not going there. No, I don't want a new idea — the old idea is fine. No, I don't want a new thing — whether it's a president, an idea, a concept. No. And you're safe. You're right in your little hole; you haven't moved. And what you're doing before is what you're doing now. And that's safe. That's comforting, and you're going to die that way. 'No,' and you're put in your hole and that's fine and you're dead. 'Yes' requires you to move out of that hole. 'Yes' is like those little animals that pop their heads out and look around. But some of them don't go."
Born March 22, 1931, William Shatner is 81 years young....thanks to one of our readers for pointing this amazing fact out to me. Many have given it up by that age, Shatner is pressing on, traveling to new vistas, just like he did on Star Trek. Hats off to Wm. Shatner, he inspires us all.
