Cecil Beat­on, British artist [Wikipedia]

Be dar­ing, be dif­fer­ent, be imprac­ti­cal, be any­thing that will assert integri­ty of pur­pose and imag­i­na­tive vision against the play-it-safers, the crea­tures of the com­mon­place, the slaves of the ordi­nary.

Luci Swin­doll (@luciswindoll), Amer­i­can author-speak­er, from I Mar­ried Adven­ture

It’s dar­ing to be curi­ous about the unknown, to dream big dreams, to live out­side pre­scribed box­es, to take risks, and above all, dar­ing to inves­ti­gate the way we live until we dis­cov­er the deep­est trea­sured pur­pose of why we are here.

7 Great Quotes

Seneca, Roman philoso­pher [Wikipedia]

It is not because things are dif­fi­cult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are dif­fi­cult.

Nikos Kazantza­kis, Greek writer-philoso­pher [Wikipedia]

A per­son needs a lit­tle mad­ness, or else they nev­er dare cut the rope and be free.

Hele­na Petro­va Blavatsky, Russ­ian writer-thinker [Wikipedia]

The more thou dost advance, the more thy feet pit­falls will meet. The Path that lead­eth on is light­ed by one fire — the light of dar­ing burn­ing in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain. The more he fears, the more that light shall pale.

Theodore Roo­sevelt, US Pres­i­dent [Wikipedia]

It is not the crit­ic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stum­bles or where the doer of deeds could have done 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 up short again and again, because there is no effort with­out error or short­com­ing, but who knows the great enthu­si­asms, the great devo­tions, who spends him­self for 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 he fails while dar­ing great­ly, so that his place shall nev­er be with those cold and timid souls who knew nei­ther vic­to­ry nor defeat. (from “Cit­i­zen­ship in a Repub­lic”, Speech at the Sor­bonne, Paris, 23 April 1910)

Lucille Ball, Amer­i­can come­di­an [Wikipedia]

I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done.
