Quote of the Day – May Sarton on Balance

Wow. On this day in 1859 – A French acrobat known professionally as Émile Blondin became the first daredevil to walk across Niagara Falls on a tightrope. Talk about balance, I cannot walk across the room without tripping, so to walk across Niagara Falls? Wow.

There is a proper balance between not asking enough of oneself and asking or expecting too much. – May Sarton
