If you dare nothing, then when the day is over, nothing is all you will have gained.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

 ~~~~~~~

The backyard of the old building was crowded by tombstone and grave markers. The town people had stopped burying their dead as cremation was much in vogue those days. The people wanted to get rid of these reminders of death but no one knew what to do with them. Except one young man. He came up with a brilliant idea one day and got the approval of the town committee to go ahead with the project. He worked on his project but didn’t allowed anyone to see it before completion. When it was unveiled, a collective gasp went up from the town people. What they saw was amazing. A structure made out of slabs, representing a child growing into a man. “But how did you think of it” they asked. If you dare nothing, then when the day is over, nothing is all you will have gained.” was his reply!
