Lion or Lamb?

The SparkPeople "Healthy Reflections" email once again provides great inspiration:


It is better to live one day as a lion than one thousand days as a lamb.

How will your life be remembered? Will your story be lost among the millions who were afraid to take a chance? Or will you leave something noble behind? There's nothing to gain by following the crowd or doing what you've always done. You may as well put yourself out to pasture. But there's everything to gain by believing that you're king or queen of the jungle, even if just for a day. (Go ahead and roar if you want to.) Each of us has an amazing opportunity to live large if we allow it. It takes leaving the comfort of our familiar meadows and walking into the unknown. Once you take that chance, you've made your days worthwhile. Even if you have few resources, adventure is around every corner, and life is waiting to be devoured. If you were to write the book of your life, would you want to read it?

Definitely a quote that I do not remotely agree with. OTOH, my own self-definition includes clever, sneaky, and exceedingly risk-averse.
