Quotations: Security

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
Alan Cohen

It's an old adage that the way to be safe is never to be secure... Each one of us requires the spur of insecurity to force us to do our best.

The opposite of security is insecurity, and the only way to overcome insecurity is to take risks.

Security is the mother of danger and the grandmother of destruction.
Thomas Fuller

Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?
Ernest Gaines

There are one hundred men seeking security to one able man who is willing to risk his fortune.
Jean Paul Getty

There is only one security, and when you've lost that security, you've lost everything you've got. And that is the security of confidence in yourself; to be, to create, to make any position you want to make for yourself. And when you lose that confidence, you've lost the only security you can have. ... Self-confidence is self-determinism. One's belief in one's ability to determine his own course. As long as one has that, he's got the universe in his pocket. And when he hasn't got that, not all the pearls in China nor all the grain and corn in Iowa can give him security, because that's the only security there is.
Ron Hubbard

Security is not the meaning of my life. Great opportunities are worth the risks.
Shirley Hufsteddler

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
Helen Keller

The incompetent handling of the Dubai Ports deal was just the tip of the iceberg. Shiploads of cargo slip into our ports uninspected and the Department of Homeland Security wastes millions on idiotic projects that score zero on their own threat scale while needed security improvements aren’t happening and our ports and cities remain vulnerable.
Senator John Kerry

We can no longer allow America’s dependence on foreign oil to compromise our energy security. Instead, we must invest in inventing new ways to power our cars and our economy. I’ll put my faith in American science and ingenuity any day before I depend on Saudi Arabia.
Senator John Kerry

Most men love money and security more, and creation and construction less, as they get older

He who is firmly seated in authority soon learns to think security, and not progress, the highest lesson in statecraft
James Russell Lowell

There is no security on this earth; there is only opportunity.
Douglas MacArthur

Learned institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty and dangerous encroachments on the public liberty.
James Madison

The man who looks for security, even in the mind, is like a man who would chop off his limbs in order to have artificial ones which will give him no pain or trouble.
Henry Miller

Nerves provide me with energy... It's when I don't have them, when I feel at ease, that I get worried.
Mike Nichols

The search for static security - in the law and elsewhere - is misguided. The fact is security can only be achieved through constant change, adapting old ideas that have outlived their usefulness to current facts.
William Osler

Uncertainty is the only certainty there is, and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security.
John Allen Paulos

We must plan for freedom, and not only for security, if for no other reason than that only freedom can make security secure
Karl Popper

True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Security is the chief enemy of mortals.
William Shakespeare

It must be admitted that there is a degree of instability which is inconsistent with civilization. But, on the whole, the great ages have been unstable ones.
