Monday night at the fundraising banquet for A Women's Resource Center, speaker Dwight Bain read a quote from Christopher Columbus that everyone wanted a copy of. Well here it is:
Bold, brave, adventurous souls to accompany me on an exciting voyage. Final destination?... home. First few stops? ...uncertain, but probably off the maps and charts. Length of journey? ...unknown. Hazards and dangers? ...many. Cost to you? ...your time, money and maybe your life itself. Rewards? ...God alone knows, but God alone decides. Opportunity? the one of a lifetime! Will you come with me?
-Christopher Columbus, written in 1491
