One only gets to the top rung on the ladder by steadily climbing up one at a time, and suddenly, all sorts of powers, all sorts of abilities which you thought never belonged to you – suddenly become within your own possibility and you think, ‘well, I’ll have a go, too’. Margaret Thatcher
(A poem of Ayers Rock)
Take time to look, look again - feel the land through your feet; the Snake will not harm those who show the proper respect. Those who rush in must be strangers. "It will attack strangers."

To wish to act like angels while we are still in this world is nothing but folly.
Saint Theresa of Avila
Many that live deserve death. And some die that deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then be not too eager to deal out death in the name of justice, fearing for your own safety. Even the wise cannot see all ends.
J. R. R. Tolkien (1892-1973), The Lord of the Rings, book four (1954)
