There is a time to test our wings…
to strike out on our own.
But those who go the distance
rarely choose to fly alone.
“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” – John Donne
“None of us can ever save himself; we are the instruments of one another’s salvation, and only by the hope that we give to others do we lift ourselves out of the darkness into light.” – Dean Koontz
