"A ship in harbor is safe — but that is not what ships are built for.”

In 1928 John A. Shedd released a collection of sayings titled “Salt from My Attic”, with the popular aphorism. It proposes that you won’t know what you’re capable of doing until you push yourself to the limits of your capabilities. Where the greatest dangers lurk, you give yourself the greatest chance at achieving something amazing.

The first lighthouse in recorded history was Egypt’s Pharos of Alexandria, One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Built around 280 BC, the source of light was a huge open fire at its summit. It was also the tallest ever built, standing a colossal 450 feet high. The first lighthouse in America was at Boston on Little Brewster Island in 1716. And the oldest existing lighthouse in America (one that was never rebuilt) is in Sandy Hook, NJ, from 1764, and is still in operation.
