Danger Defined by One of the Greats

“The greatest danger most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.”

– Michelangelo

Michelangelo was one of the great Renaissance men.

He lived in an amazing and exciting time in history and was what we now call a “jack of all trades.”
