Be Brave

“The world is changed not by the self-regarding, but by men and women prepared to make fools of themselves.”

Untitled by Jean-Michel Basquiat, 1982

More on being brave:

“We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world.”
~ Helen Keller

~ Leonardo da Vinci

~ Indira Gandhi
