Quote of the Week: from Publilius Syrus

"No man knows what he can do till he tries."

--Publilius Syrus

This is an oldie, but a goodie. You never know what you can accomplish if you don't try.

Publilius Syrus lived during the first century BC. He wrote and acted in mimes. And he was very famous as an improviser; he even won a prize from Caesar in a contest. He also wrote a collection of Sentences (Sententiae), a series of moral maxims in iambic and trochaic verse.
