Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. - Muhammad Ali

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives. - Henry David

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place. - Kurt Vonnegut

Keep in mind that dogs are naturals as animal trainers, while humans aren't, so you'd better be on your toes when you start to try out "fetch" with a new dog. - Patricia McConnel

Danger - Quotes

At the approach of danger there are always two voices that speak with equal force in the heart of man: one very reasonably tells the man to consider the nature of the danger and the means of avoiding it; the other even more reasonable says that it is too painful and harassing to think of the danger, since it is not a man's power to provide for everything and escape from the general march of events; and that it is therefore better to turn aside from the painful subject till it has come, and to think of what is pleasant. In solitude a man generally yields to the first voice; in society to the second. - Leo Tolstoy

Danger is an aphrodisiac. - Tobsha Learner

Danger was the grindstone on which the swordsman whetted his spirit. - Eiji Yoshikawa

Fear of danger is ten thousand times more terrifying than danger itself. - Daniel Defoe

It sometimes requires courage to fly from danger. - Maria Edgeworth

Nearly everything that was fun, of course, was also a little dangerous: riding roller coasters, skydiving, gambling, sex. - Dean Koontz

Our courage is greater to dare a visible than an imagined danger. A visible danger rouses our energies to meet or avert it; a fancied peril appeals from its presenting nothing to be resisted. Thus, a panic is, usually, a sudden going over to the enemy of our imagination. All is then lost, for we have not only to fight against that enemy, but our imagination as well. - Christian Nestell Bovee

Some dangers are to be courted – courted and braved as a coy mistress is to be wooed, with all the more vigour as the day makes against us. - Christian Nestell Bovee

To be dexterous in danger is a virtue; but to court danger to show it, is weakness. - William Penn

We hope all danger may be overcome; but to conclude that no danger may ever arise would itself be extremely dangerous. - Abraham Lincoln

What kind of man would live where there is no danger? I don't believe in taking foolish chances. But nothing can be accomplished by not taking a chance at all. - Charles Lindbergh

What seems dangerous often is not – black snakes, for example, or clear-air turbulence. While things that just lie there ... are loaded with jeopardy. - Amy Hempel
