About this Quote

This quote indicates that there is no happy medium when it comes to safety. Either you have it or you don't. Similar to being a virgin, there is no in-between stage. This indicates that if you don't have safety, after that you are prone and subjected to potential threats. It suggests the relevance of taking procedures to make certain safety and security and defense, as there is no halfway point in terms of security.
