"Nel giro di vent'anni sarete più dispiaciuti per le cose che non avete fatto che per quelle che avete fatto. Quindi lanciatevi, abbiate il coraggio di levare l'ancora e avventurarvi oltre il porto sicuro. Lasciatevi guidare dal vento ed esplorate nuovi lidi" Mark Twain

Ma erano telefonate al 911 o al numero per le non-emergenze?
