?How does one become a butterfly?'' she asked pensively. ''You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.''
A man sits as many risks as he runs.
A turtle makes progress when it sticks its neck out
All of life is a risk; in fact we're not going to get out alive. Casualness leads to casualties. Communication is the ability to affect other people with words.

As the band got more successful, it was increasingly difficult to get people to take a risk with something that might jeopardize their livelihood. [On Genesis]
Audacity augments courage; hesitation, fear.
Back of ninety-nine out of one-hundred assertions that a thing cannot be done is nothing, but the unwillingness to do it.
Be bold, be bold, and everywhere be bold.
Be bold. If you are going to make an error, make a doozy, and don't be afraid to hit the ball.

Do you want to be safe and good, or do you want to take a chance and be great?
Don't be afraid to go out on a limb. That's where the fruit is.
