"A ship is safe in harbor.  But that is not what ships are for."
-William Shedd

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

"Speaking of throwing off bowlines and catching trade winds, the first draft of  that year-long project called The Book was sent off to the publisher this morning.
I'd like to crawl up in that boat above and take a nap.  
I'm ready to stay in a safe harbor, take a break, and rest up for a while."

Congratulations. You did it! What a tremendous sense of accomplishment you'll feel after you're rested up a bit.
Love that quotation from Mark Twain. My philosophy exactly. I do things I don't even want to do, just so I won't have to wish I'd done it when I had the chance!
