Crisis

When written in Chinese, the word ''crisis'' is composed of two characters -- one represents danger, and the other represents opportunity.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA

These are the times that try men's souls.

Thomas Paine (1737-1809) English intellectual.

The time is out of joint. O cursed spite that ever I was born to set it right!

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.

We all live in a house on fire, no fire department to call; no way out, just the upstairs window to look out of while the fire burns the house down with us trapped, locked in it.

Tennessee Williams (1911-1983) American playwright.

The wise man does not expose himself needlessly to danger, since there are few things for which he cares sufficiently; but he is willing, in great crises, to give even his life -- knowing that under certain conditions it is not worthwhile to live.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
