To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself.

First frost

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.
 Robert Frost

Jane Eyre is one of the best books I've ever read. Right next to pride and prejudice:) I saw that it is also one of your favorites. I ordered
Chocolat today. I figured we must have similar taste in books and I've never read chocolat. Can't wait to read it! Thanks for the suggestion:) Barefoot mama
