Hope is a bad thing. It means that you are not what you want to be. It means that part of you is dead, if not all of you. It means that you entertain illusions. It's a sort of spiritual clap, I should say.

We must risk going too far to discover just how far we can go.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.
Don't listen to those who say, you taking too big a chance. Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today. Most important, don't listen when the little voice of fear inside you rears its ugly head and says. they all smarter than you out there. They're more talented, they're taller, blonder, prettier, luckier, and they have connections. I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you, not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity, and cooperation with others, but with the strength of conviction that you can move others by your own efforts, and do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live, the chances are you'll be a person worthy of your own respects.
Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.
We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.
Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.
The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.
There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something tomorrow.
If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.
Others attempt to live cautiously in the safety of established patterns. They do not feel fulfilled, yet they have found a formula not of success (whatever that is), but of avoiding failure. This is the living death -- when security becomes the overwhelming consideration.
You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself.
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go.
You'll always miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
If you play it safe in life, you've decided that you don't want to grow anymore.
The trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
Do you want to be safe and good, or do you want to take a chance and be great?
And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
Our lives improve only when we take chances -- and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.
Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try.
Risk is essential. There is not growth of inspiration in staying within what is safe and comfortable. Once you find out what you do best, why not try something else?
Risk! Risk Anything! Care no more for the opinion of others, for those other voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.
Risk more than others think is safe. Care more than others think is wise. Dream more than others think is practical. Expect more than others think is possible.
