One of my all-time favorite quotes, from one of my all-time favorite books:

Then said Christian, you make me afraid, but whither shall I fly to be safe? If I go back to mine own country, that is prepared for fire and brimstone, and I shall certainly perish there. If I can get to the Celestial City, I am sure to be in safety there. I must venture. To go back is nothing but death; to go forward is fear of death, and life-everlasting beyond it. I will yet go forward.

John Bunyan, Pilgrim’s Progress
