What do you think of these superstition quotes?
“I had only one superstition.
I made sure to touch all the bases
when I hit a home run.”
American Baseball Star
(1895 – 1948)
“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.”
(1880 - 1968)
“No one is so thoroughly superstitious
as the godless man.”
Harriet Beecher Stowe
(1811 – 1896)
