On Being Brave

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours." Ayn Rand

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." Mark Twain

Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We're afraid.”
“Come to the edge.”
"We can't. We will fall!”
"Come to the edge.”
And they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.
Guillaume Apollinaire

"And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." Anais Nin

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly;who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms,the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while DARING GREATLY so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." Theodore Roosevelt

Pay no attention to what the critics say; no statue has ever been erected to a critic.” Jean Sibelius

"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goals." Henry Ford

"The men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed. Lloyd Jones

"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear." Ambrose Redmoon

"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all." Dale Carnegie

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." Ralph Waldo Emerson

The journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” Lao Tzu; Chinese Philosopher
