What makes you think I’m not talking about being smart? What? You don’t think a fat, black girl can be smart or something? Fat-shaming racists like you make me sick.
Gabourey Sidibe

Janusz Korczak
Come! Let us lay a lance in rest,
And tilt at windmills under a wild sky!
For who would live so petty and unblest
That dare not tilt at something ere he die;
Rather than, screened by safe majority,
Preserve his little life to little end,
And never raise a rebel cry!
John Galsworthy

W. S. Gilbert

George Q. Cannon
Let us go forth and resolutely dare with sweat of brow to toil our little day.

Mahatma Gandhi
Ale: Are you manipulating me again? T.C.: Try not to fall for it. I dare you.
Steve Kluger
The core political values of our free society are so deeply embedded in our collective consciousness that only a few malcontents, lunatics generally, ever dare to threaten them.

Richard DeVos
For me, fashion means dare. I don’t mind wearing a bikini. I am okay with it.
Nargis Fakhri
A Whig is properly what is called a Trimmer – that is, a coward to both sides of the question, who dare not be a knave nor an honest man, but is a sort of whiffing, shuffling, cunning, silly, contemptible, unmeaning negation of the two.
William Hazlitt
Your victory has demonstrated that no person anywhere in the world should not dare to dream of wanting to change the world for a better place.
Nelson Mandela
All of us should have free choice when it comes to patriotic displays… a government wisely acting within its bounds will earn loyalty and respect from its citizens. A government dare not demand the same.
Jesse Ventura

Vincent Van Gogh
Self-pity is the campsite of self-defeat; it is a dark refuge for those parts of us that would rather wallow in what cannot be than dare to explore what is possible.
Guy Finley

Yitzhak Rabin
There are not many intellectuals left of Harold Pinter’s stature who dare raise their voices – and with such force – against the menace of U.S. and the unrestricted use of its power. Pinter’s voice is an unceasing thunder.
Gioconda Belli

Giles Fraser

Khem Veasna
All is possible for those who dare to die!

The most difficult thing in the world is to reveal yourself, to express what you have to. As an artist, I feel that we must try many things – but above all we must dare to fail. You must be willing to risk everything to really express it all.
John Cassavetes
Volvo is like a mysterious, beautiful woman. We just look at her from far away, amazed. We don’t dare get close to her. We’re just a bunch of farm boys.
Li Shufu

It’s a good thing when you don’t dare do something if you don’t think it’s right. But it’s not good when you think something’s not right because you don’t dare do it.

John Cassavetes
We must dare to invent the future

Bonnie Hunt
Warily, she dares to allow me a smile. “It’s okay. It’s just…I’m not too good at talking to people.” She looks away again as her shyness smothers her. “So, do you think it’d be all right if we don’t talk?

Charles Churchill
You have to appreciate the finer points of your work; criticise, too, if needed. I am also my own worst and most honest critic. I can say things which nobody will ever dare say. Even the best of friends will stop at a point, whereas I can go beyond.
Kamal Haasan
Those who dare to interpret God’s will must never claim Him as an asset for one nation or group rather than another. War springs from the love and loyalty which should be offered to God being applied to some God substitute, one of the most dangerous being nationalism.
Robert Runcie
Well, I think when one has got beliefs and expresses and communicates them then one also radiates some kind of freedom that some people might not dare having.

Joyce Carol Oates
I would not dare to say that there is a direct relation between mathematics and madness, but there is no doubt that great mathematicians suffer from maniacal characteristics, delirium, and symptoms of schizophrenia.
John Forbes Nash, Jr.
The first time I did stand-up was on a dare.
Judy Gold
Theater isn’t there to provide answers. Only possibilities. I just ask the questions. But I believe hope comes from the fact that there is a potential for redemption. At the core, that’s what matters in the theater I’m attracted to. Do we dare to hope? Do we allow ourselves to hope?
Joe Mantello
When people see the laughing face, even if they’re jealous of it, their burden is lightened. But do it first for yourself. Laugh and dare to try to love somebody, starting with yourself.

My dream was to write a book and see it published. I didn’t dare imagine anything beyond that, so, I’m trying to keep my head on my shoulders.

Those men that are so remissly governed that they dare take up arms to defend or introduce an opinion, are still in war, and their condition not peace, but only a cessation of arms for fear of one another, and they live as it were in the precincts of battle continually.
Thomas Hobbes
I dare anyone to play like Charlie Watts.

Marielle Heller
A comedy isn’t about being funny…a comedy is about characters who dare to know that they may choose a happy ending after all.
Gary D. Schmidt
When I first started, it was a dare. Someone basically said, ‘You’re a tough guy… but I’ll bet you won’t get on a microphone in front of a bunch of people.’ I was terrified, but I did it. Once I broke the ice and got onstage and got some laughs, I thought, ‘That’s not so bad.’
Charlie Murphy
And indeed there will be time To wonder, “Do I dare?” and, “Do I dare?” Time to turn back and descend the stair, With a bald spot in the middle of my hair.

Arthur Miller
Banish Air from Air
Divide Light if you dare
Emily Dickinson
Britain is still seen as a beacon for decency, for democracy, for vigorous judges upholding the rule of law and, dare I say it, a free press. I respect the press in theory, but when you see some of the things it writes about you, it’s not exactly a happy relationship.
Cherie Blair
I am surrounded by flatterers and fools. It can drive a man to madness,.. . Half of them don’t dare tell me the truth, and the other half can’t find it.
George R. R. Martin
Steven, my friend who came out to me my senior year, was a huge Madonna fan. So I may know all the words to ‘Bedtime Stories,’ ‘Erotica,’ and a few more of her albums – and we may have watched ‘Truth or Dare’ a thousand times.
Jason Mraz
I urge the enactment of a civil service law so explicit and so strong that no partisan official will dare evade it, basing all rewards, promotions and salaries solely on merit, on loyalty and industry in the public service.
Arthur Capper
Adversity is the source of our deepest growth and greatest blessings; embrace it, dare to seek it.
Aron Ralston

Who dare dishonor or defile the tongue;

Or sell their glory at a market-price!

Kate Chopin
There is no suffering like a child’s, terrified by a secret which it dare not for some reason disclose.

Mohammed Reza Pahlavi
And being that happy makes me feel guilty. Because I shouldn’t be. Not while my mum is feeling the way she is. How I can dare to be happy is beyond me, and I hate my guts for it.
Melina Marchetta
the American family is failing in its job of turning out stable human beings. … It is failing because Americans do not dare to cultivate in themselves those characteristics which would make family life creative and rewarding. To do so, would ruin them financially.

Smith Wigglesworth
Dare to look up to God and say, Deal with me in the future as Thou wilt; I am of the same mind as Thou art; I am Thine; I refuse nothing that pleases Thee; lead me where Thou wilt; clothe me in any dress Thou choosest.
The concept of ‘obscenity’ is tested when one dares to look at something that he has an unbearable desire to see but has forbidden himself to look at. When one feels that everything that one had wanted to see has been revealed, ‘obscenity’ disappears, the taboo disappears as well, and there is a certain liberation.
Nagisa Oshima
In a consumer society, expectations dare not plateau, because a growing economy depends on rising expectations… The more we let our level of contentment be determined by outside factors-a new car, fashionable clothes, a prestigious career, social status-the more we relinquish control over our own happiness.
Paul Brand
Uncertainty is a quality to be cherished, therefore – if not for it, who would dare to undertake anything?
Auguste de Villiers de l’Isle-Adam

Susie Wolff
I dare you to show me one example where I haven’t discharged my responsibility seriously, professionally and appropriately.
John Key
Fear plays an interesting role in our lives. How dare we let it motivate us. How dare we let it into our decision-making, into our livelihoods, into our relationships. It’s funny, isn’t it? We take a day a year to dress up in costumes and celebrate fear.
James Spader
No candidate dares to look for a new campaign model that could really enhance the democratic process. Instead we are left with the current one which makes our candidates look like hucksters.
Greta Van Susteren
People who don’t take risks generally make about two big mistakes a year. People who do take risks generally make about two big mistakes a year.
Peter Drucker
When a pointed question is beaten back with an attack or threat of, ‘How dare you…’ it’s a reliable signal that deception is involved. Trump is a master at this.
Pamela Meyer
To endure is greater than to dare; to tire out hostile fortune; to be daunted my no difficulty; to keep heart when all have lost it; to go through intrigue spotless; to forgo even ambition when the end is gained – who can say this is not greatness?
William Makepeace Thackeray
Isi, I’m trying to say that you’ve been… no, you’re so, you’re–” He stopped. “You are,” he said. His hand found hers, and he held her finger tightly, as though he did not dare to do any more than hold her one hand, and look at her, and breathe deeply.
Shannon Hale
Aubrey’s voice when he answered was soft. “I’m one of the reasons they wouldn’t dare.
Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Just the little bit that I’ve learned about Judaism, I didn’t realize how, dare I say, intense that religion is as far as all of the things that you have to know and remember and the ritualism of it.

Robin Sharma
Jennifer Palmieri going after Kellyanne Conway and the first sound bite is a discussion of Steve Bannon and what a reprobate the Clinton people think he is and how dare you have somebody like that on your team. How dare you campaign on white supremacism. Jennifer Palmieri starts it off.
Rush Limbaugh
I am a multi-dimensional woman who pushes boundaries and dares to be herself.
Joanna Lohman
Being in an industry where money talks, everybody involved in the ‘Dare To Dream’ project came to a conclusion to sign it to Interscope.
You could be a gambler. A thief, for all I know. Besides—” He captured her hand and stopped her from walking on, holding her in place. “Besides what, you insufferable prude?” “Prude, eh? Do you need another kiss to remind you what a prude I am?” “Don’t you dare.” “Then don’t call me names.” “You started it.
Gaelen Foley
If I performed poorly, I knew the eyes of the sports world would be turned away from me. In that situation I knew the NCAA would crush me for sure. But if I could run well, they would not dare to hit me with everyone looking in my direction. I HAD to have a good race.
Gerry Lindgren
And what they dare to dream of, date to do.
James Russell Lowell
Morality is always the product of terror; its chains and strait-waistcoats are fashioned by those who dare not trust others, because they dare not trust themselves, to walk in liberty.
Aldous Huxley
The source of our suffering has been our timidity. We have been afraid to think….Let us dare to read, think, speak, write.
David McCullough
It is man’s vision of a world fit for rational, civilized humanity which leads him to dare and to suffer to build societies free from want and fear. Concepts such as truth, justice and compassion cannot be dismissed as trite when these are often the only bulwarks which stand against ruthless power.
Aung San Suu Kyi
I find no foeman in the road but fear; to doubt is failure and to dare success.
Frederic Lawrence Knowles

Elijah Parish Lovejoy
A poet dares be just so clear and no clearer… He unzips the veil from beauty, but does not remove it. A poet utterly clear is a trifle glaring.
E. B. White
It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
The Jews’ guilt of the crucifixion of Jesus consigned them to perpetual servitude, and, like Cain, they are to be wanderers and fugitives. The Jews will not dare to raise their necks, bowed under the yoke of perpetual slavery, against the reverence of the Christian faith.
Pope Innocent III
Sapere aude. Dare to be wise.
I don’t mean you have to be overbearing, but you have to stay on top of things – read the trades, know what’s going on in the town. I call it ‘dare to be stupid.’ The worst thing they can say is, ‘We got nothing for you.’ So I’ve hustled a lot.
Alex Rocco
How dare you ever in ya life walk past me without acknowledging their man as God.

Tommy Lee
One would like to stroke and caress human beings, but one dares not do so, because they bite.
Vladimir Lenin
I generally only eat one meal a day, which is pretty unusual for a restaurant reviewer. It’s not that I have a problem with food; I’ll eat anything that doesn’t involve a bet, a dare, or an initiation ceremony.
A. A. Gill
The best protection against rape, stalking, and domestic violence is to raise men who both understand that women are different, and would never dare take advantage of this difference.
Wendy Shalit
I read more and more and I came across this character, Caroline Weldon. Sometimes in history, you find these people that no one would dare create. They’re too mad.
Steven Knight
Be what you are. Give What is yours to give. Have Style. Dare.
Stanley Kunitz
Works of art always spring from those who have faced the danger, gone to the very end of an experience, to the point beyond which no human being can go. The further one dares to go, the more decent, the more personal, the more unique a life becomes.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Honestly, without art and dance, I think I would be a very safe, black-and-white thinker. I wouldn’t dare to take any risks or see so much of the world in myself and other people!
Alyson Stoner

Douglas Alexander

We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.
May Sarton
Earnest in practicing the ordinary virtues, and careful in speaking about them, if, in his practice, he has anything defective, the superior man dares not but exert himself; and if, in his words, he has any excess, he dares not allow himself such license.
However evil men may be they dare not be openly hostile to virtue, and so when they want to attack it they pretend to find it spurious , or impute crimes to it.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
How dare politicians continue to pass insane laws forcing good, law-abiding people to be defenseless and helpless.

Sensitive people faced with the prospect of a camera portrait put on a face they think is one they would like to show the world very often what lies behind the facade is rare and more wonderful than the subject knows or dares to believe.
Irving Penn
I always say, men’s ankles are kind of like men’s version of cleavage. That’s what I think, because it’s sexy. It shows, like, you dare to go there.
Jeannie Mai
I read ‘Pushing the Limit’ and ‘Dare You To’ by Katie McGarry. Fantastic stuff. I had never read young adult before, but now I’m a believer.
Lori Foster
By all means use sometimes to be alone. Salute thyself: see what thy soul doth wear. Dare to look in thy chest; for ‘Tis thine own: And tumble up and down what thou findst there. Who cannot rest till he good fellows find, he breaks up house, turns out of doors his mind.
George Herbert
When ‘Dare Me’ was first in development, it was hard to make the case for why it’d be interesting to anybody other than teenage girls. It’d often be treated, like, on first glance, ‘What is this? ‘Pretty Little Liars?’ ‘Mean Girls?” It never was that.
Megan Abbott
The manger dares us to believe the best is yet to be. And it could all begin today.
Max Lucado
To-morrow! the mysterious, unknown guest,
Who cries to me: “Remember Barmecide,
And tremble to be happy with the rest.”
And I make answer: “I am satisfied;
I dare not ask; I know not what is best;
God hath already said what shall betide.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
A cowardly populace which will dare nothing beyond talk.
[Lat., Vulgus ignavum et nihil ultra verba ausurum.]
I am convinced that most people do not grow up…We marry and dare to have children and call that growing up. I think what we do is mostly grow old. We carry accumulation of years in our bodies, and on our faces, but generally our real selves, the children inside, are innocent and shy as magnolias.
Maya Angelou
Crowded hallways, are the loneliest places, for outcasts and rebels,or anyone who just dares to be different.
Hunter Hayes
Dare to do things worthy of imprisonment if you mean to be of consequence.

Frances Wright
Everyone has a ‘risk muscle.’ You keep it in shape by trying new things. If you don’t, it atrophies. Make a point of using it at least once a day.
Roger von Oech
Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself and dares to become involved with experimenting with his own life.
Herbert Otto Gille
I wouldn’t dare compare myself to Buffon, not as a man and not as a keeper.
Wojciech Szczesny
If I dare to tear up or shed a tear, then I’m criticized for that as well! It’s a horrible double standard, but quite frankly, I don’t have time enough to fight that battle and fight crime. I chose to fight crime and ignore the rest. I just keep going to the best I can.
Nancy Grace
If you desire to be magnanimous, undertake nothing rashly, and fear nothing thou undertakest; fear nothing but infamy; dare anything but injury; the measure of magnanimity is neither to be rash nor timorous.
Francis Quarles
Ah. In my experience, when people say they don’t know whether they love someone, they usually mean no.
Michael Scott
True Dare Kiss’ is a gothic drama about a highly dysfunctional Mancunian family who, after 20 years, reconvene for the funeral of their father. I wanted to play Phil because I really liked the character, and there is an element of mystery about her – which I can’t reveal.
Dervla Kirwan
I have so many things to do today, I dare not ignore my time with God.

Be a lamp in brightness, and make the works of darkness cease, so that whenever your doctrine shines, no one may dare to heed the desires of darkness.
Ephrem the Syrian
If you’ve ever been to a poetry slam, you know that the highest scoring emotion is self-righteous indignation: how dare you judge me. So in that way, the poem, ‘What Teachers Make,’ is an absolutely formulaic slam poem designed to allow me to get up on my soap box and say, ‘Let me tell you what really makes me angry.’
Taylor Mali
There’s lots of opportunities out there in life, but if you never put yourself out on a limb and take chances you’ll never dare to be great at anything.
Brian Griese
I don’t know what it is in me that refuses to quit, but I think it’s kind of like, dare to dream.
Brett Young
It is troublesome sometimes when people get up in your face in public, you know? And say, ‘How could you, how dare you?’ Well, they don’t know me.
Shepard Smith
I’m doing modeling to stay alive. I don’t enjoy my work. I don’t find it creative. You don’t need brains, and there are no heavy qualifications. All it takes is not to be shy and to dare to make a fool of yourself. But I shouldn’t complain, because I am privileged enough to be overpaid.
Paulina Porizkova
The secret is to write just anything, to dare to write just anything, because when you write just anything, you begin to say what is important.
Julien Green
No woman dares express all she thinks.
Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
What the world wants today is twenty men and women who can dare to stand in the street yonder and say that they possess nothing but God. Who will go? Why should one fear? If this is true, what else could matter? If it is not true, what do our lives matter?
Swami Vivekananda
I wouldn’t dare to speculate as to Cleopatra’s falling in love. Her relationships are too convenient for that.
Stacy Schiff
We fight, we dare, we end our hunger for justice.
Suzanne Collins
I’m very used to stages and dressing rooms. And dare I say it, much as I like being at home, I love the buzz of a new hotel room. It never quite loses its thing.

O happiness! our being’s end and aim!
Good, pleasure, ease, content! whate’er thy name:
That something still which prompts the eternal sigh,
For which we bear to live, or dare to die.
Alexander Pope
Passionate conviction … sparks romances, wins battles, and drives people to pursue dreams others wouldn’t dare. Belief in ourselves and in what is right catapults us over hurdles, and our lives unfold.
Howard Schultz
For wanderers, dreamers, and lovers, for lonely men and women who dare to ask of life everything good and beautiful. It is for those who are too gentle to live among wolves.
James Kavanaugh
How many people would like to get up in a social prayer-meeting to say a few words for Christ, but there is such a cold spirit of criticism in the church that they dare not do it.

People with integrity do what they say they are going to do. Others have excuses.
Laura Schlessinger

H. P. Blavatsky
I go around the country sharing my story. I aim to dare other people to go deep into their own stories and hope to inspire them to think about their own world and experiences.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
it is no small comfort to me to know that God has called me to my work, putting me where I am and as I am. I have not sought the position, and I dare not leave it. He knows why He places me here-whether to do, or learn, or suffer.
Hudson Taylor
Maybe when you’re alone or no one’s looking, you dare to think, “Maybe someday I could get to work with somebody like Quentin Tarantino.” For me, it happened. And it didn’t just happen once, it’s happened twice.
Walton Goggins
You know, YOUR President, the one with the big ears-he ain’t my President – had that woman singing for him at his Inauguration. She’s going to get her [expletive] whooped. How dare Beyonce sing MY song that I been singing forever. Now I’m going to sing it for y’all.
Etta James
To know how to say what other people only think, is what makes poets and sages; and to dare to say what others only dare to think, makes men martyrs or reformers.

Nobody would dare to show Rajini sir in bad light through a film.
Adithya Menon
Let us dare to read, think, speak and write.
John Adams
I think when you are dealing with Brock Lesnar, you have to show up ready to deal with Brock Lesnar. Brock is the type of guy who is not going to give you an inch. If you are going to get anything from him, you have to take it, and he’s going to dare you to take it.
Samoa Joe
Uncalled for excuses are practical confessions.
Charles Simmons
There is a part of your brain that has to stop when you’re acting. You have to be in the moment and dare to fly. Words can’t be on your mind.
Penelope Cruz
Every man can educate himself. It’s shameful to put one’s mind into the hands of those whom you wouldn’t entrust with your money. Dare to think for yourself.
Dare to believe that good things are possible when you follow your heart.
Bryant H. McGill
Nor myrtle–which means chiefly love: and love
Is something awful which one dare not touch
So early o’ mornings.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Every day is a little life, and our whole life is but a day repeated. Therefore live every day as if it would be the last. Those that dare lose a day, are dangerously prodigal; those that dare misspend it are desperate.
Joseph Hall
If Church history teaches us anything, it is that we cannot afford to be a vacillating Church. We minister to a people who are in great need of hearing truth, we dare not make any attempt to soft pedal that glorious truth.
Martin Luther
Again and again there comes a time in history when the man who dares to say that two and two make four is punished with death. (“The Plague”)
Albert Camus

Harry Belafonte
It took the madmen of yesterday for us to be able to act with extreme clarity today. I want to be one of those madmen. We must dare to invent the future.
Thomas Sankara
I dare anyone to spend 10 years in the laugh-track that is Chuck Lorre’s hive of oppression and not suffer some form of an emotional tsunami.
Charlie Sheen
The Christian in prayer comes up close to God, with a humble boldness of faith, and takes hold of him, wrestles with him; yea, will not let him go without a blessing… They are only a few noble-spirited souls, who dare take heaven by force, that are fit for this calling.
William Gurnall
Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels – men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
Michael Jordan
I think it’s obsessions that a lot of people share, but they don’t dare to talk about openly.
Julie Delpy
A club there is of smokers–dare you come
To that close, clouded, hot, narcotic room?
When, midnight past, the very candles seem
Dying for air, and give a ghastly gleam;
When curling fumes in lazy wreaths arise,
And prosing topers rub their winking eyes.
George Crabbe
To dare is to do … to fear is to fail.
John Goddard

Valery Giscard d’Estaing
Who will dare say he has defined art?
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Our religion vulgarly stands on numbers of believers. Whenever the appeal is made–no matter how indirectly–to numbers, proclamation is then and there made, that religion is not. He that finds God a sweet, enveloping presence, who shall dare to come in?
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Shall I part my hair behind Do I dare to eat a peach I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach. I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each. I do not think that they will sing to me.

Cristina Saralegui
Some people like to call me cocky or arrogant, but I just think ‘how dare you assume I should think less of myself’
Ronda Rousey
A conspiracy is nothing but a secret agreement of a number of men for the pursuance of policies which they dare not admit in public
Mark Twain
How dare we be pessimistic? Maybe the future is better than it used to be.

The true Love Dare. To move into His presence and listen to His love unending and know the grace uncontainable. This is the vault of the miracles. The only thing that can change us, the world, is this- all His love.
Ann Voskamp
What a torment it is to see so much loveliness passing and repassing before us, and yet not dare to lay hold of it!

J. K. Rowling
Never think that Jesus commanded a trifle, nor dare to trifle with anything He has commanded.
Dwight L. Moody
I had a father who was active, present. There are people out there that never knew their fathers, didn’t have their father’s support. If I were to complain, that would be real sad. How dare I?
John David Washington

Guess, if you can, and choose, if you dare.
Pierre Corneille
What the hell is social justice? What sort of fool can imagine income equality as dictated by bureaucrats and government thugs? I dare anyone to attempt to explain those drug-inspired fantasies in meaningful terms.
Ted Nugent
Money gained on Sabbath-day is a loss, I dare to say. No blessing can come with that which comes to us, on the devil’s back, by our willful disobedience of God’s law. The loss of health by neglect of rest, and the loss of soul by neglect of hearing the gospel, soon turn all seeming profit into real loss.
Charles Spurgeon
I’m not the type to demand affirmation or to worry that I’ll be forgotten. I’m more the type to dare the world to forget me.
David Berman
An America that is militarily and economically strong is not enough. The world must see an America that is morally strong with a creed and a vision. This is what has led us to dare and achieve. For us, values count.

Dwayne Johnson
To dare: that is the whole secret of revolutions.
Louis Antoine de Saint-Just
Dream big, dare greatly and shine brightly.
Robin Sieger
My mantra is, ‘Dare to be…’ I leave it open-ended, because depending on the mood, the weather, the day, you might need a different power word. Having a power word can help steer you in the right direction, especially when things aren’t going your way.
Hilary Knight
I dare you all to write one more thing that you won’t say to my face. Because I will make you say it. In that manner. That is a threat.

Christine Feehan
Have the courage to be selfless in a world were such qualities are not admired. Dare to be differnt. Be crazy!
Frederick Lenz
He who dares not (reason), is a slave.
William Drummond
There is a time when it is necessary to abandon the used clothes, which already have the shape of our body and to forget our paths, which takes us always to the same places. This is the time to cross the river: and if we don’t dare to do it, we will have stayed, forever beneath ourselves
Fernando Pessoa
How much truth can a spirit bear, how much truth can a spirit dare? … that became for me more and more the real measure of value.
Friedrich Nietzsche
I believe that the happiest of all Christians and the truest of Christians are those who never dare to doubt God, but take His Word simply as it stands, and believe it, and ask no questions, just feeling assured that if God has said it, it will be so.
Charles Spurgeon
Live win, dare fail.
James Hetfield
There is but one coward on earth, and that is the coward that dare not know.
W. E. B. Du Bois
I would not dare so dishonor my Creator’s name by attaching it to this filthy book.
Thomas Paine
I believe that each of us comes from the Creator trailing wisps of glory. So at this wonderful, young age of 65, I don’t know yet what the Lord has for me to do. I try to live up to the energy and to the calling, but I wouldn’t dare say I have even scratched the surface yet.
Maya Angelou
I’ve had people say to me, ‘How dare you have a Twitter,’ you know, with my gimmick, I guess, and I just say, ‘It’s 2017.’ It’d be hard to find someone in America who doesn’t have a phone that has Twitter capabilities. So as a WWE Superstar, I think it’s OK that I have a Twitter, people.
Luke Harper
I had to dare a little bit. Who am I kidding-I had to dare a lot. Dont wear one ring, wear five or six. People ask how I can play with all those rings, and I reply, Very well, thank you.
Republicans have pounced. They’re outraged. They say, ‘How dare you lie about caring for the people who got hurt in the war we lied them into?’
Bill Maher
One must work and dare if one really wants to live.
Vincent Van Gogh
For many people, an excuse is better than an achievement because an achievement, no matter how great, leaves you having to prove yourself again in the future; but an excuse can last for life.
Eric Hoffer
It is natural for men to want power. But to seek power actively takes a temperament baffling to both the simple and the wise. The simple cannot fathom how any man would dare presume to prevail, while the wise are amazed that any reasonable man would want the world, assuming he could get it.
Gore Vidal
I dare not drink before a gig because I’ll get tired and blow it. So I have to sit drinking tea in a caravan.
John Bonham
One hardly dares to say that love is the core of the relationship, though love is sought for and created in relationship; love is rather the marvel when it is there, but it is not always there, and to know another and to be known by another – that is everything.
Florida Scott-Maxwell
I have found my star. She is beauty and grace. Elegance and goodness. My laughter in winter. She is courageous and strong. Bold and tempting. Unlike any other in all the universe, and I cannot touch her. I dare not even try.” [Zarek]
Sherrilyn Kenyon
It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.
Muhammad Ali
The true power is in the imagination which dares to speculate upon that which is not yet. The imagination, backed by great expectations, can bring about almost any reality within the range of probabilities.
As an artist, I feel that we must try many things – but above all we must dare to fail.
John Cassavetes
My theory is that all of Scottish cuisine is based on a dare.
Mike Myers
We must dare, and dare again, and go on daring.
Georges Danton
Go on,” he said in a low tone that was a dare. “Keep on poking the hungry wolf, see how naked it gets you.
Nalini Singh
It is a mournful fact that most men, and indeed all men of worldly character, have so much regard to public opinion that they dare not act according to the dictates of their consciences when acting thus would incur the popular frown.
Charles Grandison Finney
I dare suggest that the composer would do himself and his music an immediate and eventual service by total, resolute and voluntary withdrawal from this public world to one of private performance and electronic media.

Gail Sheehy
What rights are those that dare not resist for them?
Alfred Lord Tennyson
The Jewish nation dares to display an irreconcilable hatred toward all nations, and revolts against all masters; always superstitious, always greedy for the well-being enjoyed by others, always barbarous – cringing in misfortune and insolent in prosperity.
Don’t you dare underestimate the power of your own instinct.
Barbara Corcoran
To be an artist is to fail, as no other dare fail, that failure is his world and the shrink from desertion, art and craft, good housekeeping, living.
Samuel Beckett
Those that dare lose a day, ate dangerously prodigal; those that dare misspend it, are desperate.
Joseph Hall
They who dare to ask anything of a friend, by their very request seem to imply that they would do anything for the sake of that friend.

I pray you indulge me for a space, for I am going to set out on a speech which may have some duration, but whose theme may be gleaned from its opening phrase: how dare you.
David Mamet
Dare, will, keep silence.
William Bolitho
Who does not know history’s first law to be that an author must not dare to tell anything but the truth? And its second that he must make bold to tell the whole truth? That there must be no suggestion of partiality anywhere in his writings? Nor of malice?
Marcus Tullius Cicero
A girl can’t analyze marriage, and a woman dare not.
Una Vincenzo, Lady Troubridge
Someday we will dare to trade good for true
Andrea Gibson
Some roles are easier to choose, some roles are more difficult because they are more daring. Sometimes you have to dare.
Isabelle Huppert
The loneliest ebb of my life came on that Christmas eve, only one day after my arrival in New York. The abyss of loneliness. I ate a solitary dinner in a small cafe, and the very food tasted bitter with my unshed tears. One doesn’t dare cry in America. It is unmanly here.
Rudolph Valentino
To dare, and again dare, and forever dare!
Georges Danton
A true brave man is the one who dares to work against personal-interest.
Khem Veasna
The only way to keep from going backward is to keep going forward. Eternal vigilance is the price of success. There are three steps, and each one is absolutely essential. You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.
Charles F. Haanel
It will be! the mass is working clearer!
Conviction gathers, truer, nearer!
The mystery which for Man in Nature lies
We dare to test, by knowledge led;
And that which she was wont to organize
We crystallize, instead.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
When a man vowed to nonviolence as the law governing human beings dares to refer to war, he can only do it so as to strain every nerve to avoid it.
Mahatma Gandhi
Literature that is not the breath of contemporary society, that dares not transmit the pains and fears of that society . . . loses the confidence of its own people, and its published works are used as wastepaper instead of being read.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
In each human heart terror survives The ravin it has gorged: the loftiest fear All that they would disdain to think were true: Hypocrisy and custom make their minds The fanes of many a worship, now outworn. They dare not devise good for man’s estate, And yet they know not that they do not dare.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Jazz shouldn’t have any mandates. Jazz is not supposed to be something that’s required to sound like jazz. For me, the word ‘jazz’ means, ‘I dare you.’
Wayne Shorter
Fisherman deceives the fish with bait; this action makes the fisherman dishonest! For a fisherman to be honest, he must not put any bait to his fishhook! He who dares to be ideally honest, let him know how hard it is to be such an honest!

Robert Southey
The Russians train; they do not dare educate.
Max Lerner
What are you to us, you who are cut off from God, a fugitive for Heaven, and a slave of evil? You dare not do anything to us: Christ, the Son of God, has dominion over us and over all. Leave us, you thing of bane. We are made steadfast by the uprightness of His Cross. Serpent, we trample on your head.
Seraphim of Sarov
Maybe the man who said that his doctor had pulled him off Prozac because One Thousand Gifts and taking the dare to write 1,000 gifts was healing deep places in him and leading him to *experience* joy.
Ann Voskamp
I just feel like my audience is interested in anything that I do. Dare I say, even when I was making my science experiment videos, they lived for that.
Bretman Rock
Who’s gonna dare to be great?
Muhammad Ali
Practice rather than preach. Make of your life an affirmation, defined by your ideals, not the negation of others. Dare to the level of your capability then go beyond to a higher level.
Alexander Haig
No one will dare maintain that it is better to do injustice than to bear it.
Dare to be what your best self knows you ought to be; dare to be a bigger human being than you have ever been.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nobody can dare me to do anything that I don’t come up with on my own.
Corey Taylor
After many unhappy experiments in the direction of an ideal Republic, it was found that what may be described as a Despotism tempered by Dynamite provides, on the whole, the most satisfactory description of ruler – an autocrat who dares not abuse his autocratic power.
W. S. Gilbert
Art means to dare – and to have been right.
Ned Rorem
Stay firmly in your path and dare; be wild two hours a day!

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
All the Formula 1 teams that Dare To Be Different has come into contact with – Ferrari, McLaren, Force India, Williams – they’re all very proactive in supporting us. They allow us to contact their female staff members and they’re very conscious of wanting to help increase their percentage of women in the industry.
Susie Wolff
We judge people based on their clothes, social class, and, dare I say, ethnicity. Our comedians make light of these stereotypes regularly, and we laugh at their accuracy.
The score is not a bible, and I am never afraid to dare. The music is behind those dots.
Vladimir Horowitz
I dare say you believe I’m going to die. I bet you don’t believe you’re going to die. You know it, but you don’t believe it. Imaginatively, I think we find it impossible to believe we don’t exist.
Lore Segal
Who then will dare to say I’m weak or timid? No, they’ll say I’m loyal as a friend, ruthless as a foe, so much like a hero destined for glory.
Guess if you can, choose if you dare.
Pierre Corneille
Cowards never won heaven. Do not claim that you are begotten of God and you have His royal blood running in your veins unless you can prove your lineage by His heroic spirit: to dare to be holy in spite of men and devils.
William Gurnall
I accept reality and dare not question it.
Walt Whitman
One person, one vote sounds so reasonable and – dare I say it – democratic. But the voting process in America is anything but fair and balanced.
Richard Belzer
Dare to accomplish the things you’ve only dreamed about doing. If you can dream it, you can do it.
Denise Austin
Robert Mueller himself has perhaps the best and the cleanest reputation in all of official Washington. He is Mr. Integrity. He is Mr. Cultured. He is Mr. Mannered. He is Mr. Sophisticated. There isn’t a soul in Washington who dares utter nary a negative word about Mueller.
Rush Limbaugh
All the world says of a coxcomb that he is a coxcomb; but no one dares to say so to his face, and he dies without knowing it.
Jean de la Bruyere
You need a degree of foolishness to cause disruptive change in healthcare. Dare to dream.
Vinod Khosla
Fair play to all those who dare to dream and don’t give up.
Marketa Irglova
The last thing the world needs is another boring person or another boring brand, so embrace all the things that make you different. Alter your clothes all you want, but don’t you dare alter your inner freak – she’s got your back as much as I do.
Sophia Amoruso
Why do I even dare to think I could dream I could imagine I could hope?!
Dylan Moran
I don’t dare postulate about science, but I know that it takes both emotion and intellect in order for art to happen.
Lukas Foss
Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.
Joseph Story
The American Revolution represented the informed and mature convictions of a great mass of independent, liberty-loving, God-fearing people who knew their rights, and possessed the courage to dare to maintain them.
Calvin Coolidge
Fear is only a verb if you let it be. Don’t you dare let go of my hand!
Andrea Gibson
Fain would I, but I dare not; I dare, and yet I may not;
I may, although I care not, for pleasure when I play not.
Walter Raleigh
Choose to chance the rapids and dare to dance the tide.
Garth Brooks
It’s a real smug self-righteous punk kid saying nobody has the right to tell him what to do and how dare you put a sign up saying that I can’t go on your property?
Dave Barry
Americans are all inquisitive, which accounts for their go-aheadativeness, I dare say.
May Agnes Fleming
A thinking partner who isn’t an echo chamber… How many of us dare to have such collaborators?
Margaret Heffernan
What we know matters, but who we are matters more. Being rather than knowing requires showing up and letting ourselves be seen. It requires us to dare greatly, to be vulnerable.
BrenГ© Brown
Think of the moment you count
most foul in your life;
conjure it,
pray to it;
your face is bleak, you retract,
you dare not remember it.
Hilda Doolittle
The poorest man may, in his cottage, bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. It may be frail, its roof may shake; the wind may blow though it; the storm may enter; the rain may enter; but the King of England may not enter; all his force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement.
William Pitt
Playing gangsters is great. They usually dress you sharp. And you have a license to pretty much bully anybody. I mean, I wouldn’t dare do that at home. My wife will give me a back hander.
Alex Rocco
A man is as good as he has to be, and a woman is as bad as she dares
Elbert Hubbard
We must dare to think unthinkable thoughts.
J. William Fulbright
If we dare to come closer to our fellow human beings, we will be able to see and understand them better.
Kjell Magne Bondevik
But sometimes it’s good to dare yourself to do the unthinkable. And rather than stand in front of an audience with no clothes on, I decided to have a go at stand-up comedy.
Evan Davis
The river delights to lift us free, if only we dare let go.
Richard Bach
The fear of missing out means that today’s media, more than ever before, hunts in a pack. In these modes it is like a feral beast, just tearing people and reputations to bits. But no-one dares miss out.
Tony Blair
I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.
Pablo Picasso
There is much coldness among men because we do not dare to be as cordial as we really are.
Albert Schweitzer
I would say to any artist: Don’t be repressed in your work, dare to experiment, consider any urge, if in a new direction all the better.
Edward Weston
I feel a certain calm. There is safety in the midst of danger. What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Vincent Van Gogh
Poland is at the center of European civilization. It has contributed mightily to that civilization. It is doing so today by being magnificently unreconciled to oppression. Poland’s struggle to be Poland and to secure the basic rights we often take for granted, demonstrates why we dare not take those rights for granted.
Ronald Reagan
He is not valiant that dares lie; but he that boldly bears calamity.
Philip Massinger
What my tongue dares not that my heart shall say
William Shakespeare
Swift has sailed into his rest; Savage indignation there Cannot lacerate his breast Imitate him if you dare, World-besotted traveler; he Served human liberty.
William Butler Yeats
Both within the family and without, our sisters hold up our mirrors: our images of who we are and of who we can dare to become.
Elizabeth Fishel
I’m so afraid that all I can reach will lead me to all I dare not see.
Stephen King
That’s a valiant flea that dares eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
William Shakespeare
And you must dare to do as many things as you dream of.
Nastassja Kinski
The word ‘risk’ derives from the early Italian risicare, which means ‘to dare’. In this sense, risk is a choice rather than a fate. The actions we dare to take, which depend on how free we are to make choices, are what the story of risk is all about. And that story helps define what it means to be a human being.
Peter L. Bernstein
To lead means to direct and to exact, and no man dares do either – he might be unpopular. What authority we are given now is a trinity: the grin, the generality, and God (the Word).
Marya Mannes
Mr. Marx does not believe in God, but he believes deeply in himself. His heart is filled not with love but with rancor. He has very little benevolence toward men and becomes… furious and… spiteful… when anyone dares question the omniscience of the divinity whom he adores, that is to say, Mr. Marx himself.
Mikhail Bakunin
On the subject of money and politics and the rest, I have a DARE: Disclose who are these people; Amend the Constitution to overturn Citizens United; Reform: let’s have public financing of campaigns; and Empower.
Nancy Pelosi
If you dare to struggle, you dare to win.
Fred Hampton
There is nothing so enervating and exhausting as this hopeless waiting. I dare say this is only a transition period. I will and shall have a victory some day. If the powers that be have shown me so little favor as to place me in this world and make me what I am, the result must be accordingly.
Henrik Ibsen
Ekta Kapoor, the producer of ‘Kaahin… ‘ once told me that you’ve got to keep breaking the mould to keep yourself in the game. Hence, I dare to do something different. For instance, after years of essaying flamboyantly dressed negative roles, I took on one of a demure singer in Zee TV’s ‘Sanjog Se Bani Sangini.’
Sudha Chandran
He dares not concern himself with the future for fear of disturbing the present.
Carol Shields
I have been so copied by those people who have made fortunes that people assume I am that rich. But I did things for the excitement, the dare, the fact that it was new, not for the money. And too many times I was the first, not the beneficiary.
Grace Jones
Women too often say to themselves, ‘It’s too difficult. I’m not going to get there.’ I tell them: ‘Listen: do not question your abilities. Dare to do what you want to do and realize that you can do it.’
Isabelle Kocher
Don’t think small when you pray. God has a way to bring your dreams to pass if you’ll dare to be bold enough to ask.
Joel Osteen
Rennie didn’t quite dare to answer back, but she looked a whole book and a couple of extra chapters.
Patricia C. Wrede
In America, conscription is unknown; men are enlisted for payment. Compulsory recruitment is so alien to the ideas and so foreign to the customs of the people of the United States that I doubt whether they would ever dare to introduce it into their law.
Alexis de Tocqueville
The love that dare not speak its name has become the love that won’t shut up.
Robertson Davies
The role of the opposition leader differs from that of the chancellor. If this government is to be successful, I have to take the emotional state of all partners into account. Besides, the Social Democrats didn’t exactly present me with the motto “Let us dare to have more freedom” on a silver platter.
Angela Merkel
because it’s Spring thingS dare to do people (& not the other way round)because it ‘s A pril Lives lead their own persons(in stead of everybodyelse’s)but what’s wholly marvellous my Darling is that you & i are more than you & i(be ca us e It’s we)
e. e. cummings
As I’ve grown – dare I say it – older, I had hopes of indulging my dreams of being a sailor.
Jimmy Webb
There are few men who dare to publish to the world the prayers they make to Almighty God.
Michel de Montaigne
There’s a schizoid streak within the family anyway so I dare say that I’m affected by that. The majority of the people in my family have been in some kind of mental institution, as for my brother he doesn’t want to leave. He likes it very much.
David Bowie
When I see my opponent, I begin to shake uncontrollably. Once he hits me, I think to myself, you just hit Wanderlei Silva, how dare you hit Wanderlei Silva. Then I try to kill them.
Wanderlei Silva
There is a point at which the law becomes immoral and unethical. That point is reached when it becomes a cloak for the cowardice that dares not stand up against blatant violations of justice.
Kurt Huber
I personally would like to bring a tortoise onto the stage, turn it into a racehorse, then into a hat, a song, a dragoon and a fountain of water. One can dare anything in the theatre and it is the place where one dares the least.
Eugene Ionesco
True hopefulness and optimism is what leads one to dare. It is also what lifts one back up to dare again after a failed attempt.
Bibi Bourelly
When did you become a woman?”-Hatori How dare you ask that after you have seen me naked so many times…”-Yuki GASP! No it cant be! Yuki-kun, does that mean…” fan club girls NO! He’s my doctor…”Yuki
Natsuki Takaya
Let’s dare to release our immature fantasies of a magically faultless U.S. system and a magically protected election process. We have been lucky as a nation, but sometimes continued luck depends on action.
Naomi Wolf
I hesitate to deposit money in a bank. I am afraid I shall never dare to take it out again
Jean Baudrillard
Do you dare to accuse wine of clouding the reason? Quote me more marvelous effects than those of wine. Look! when a man drinks, he is rich, everything he touches succeeds, he gains lawsuits, is happy and helps his friends. Come, bring hither quick a flagon of wine, that I may soak my brain and get an ingenious idea.
Once again, the vice president has acknowledged that he dares to follow where Bill Bradley has boldly led. … The only consistency in Al Gore’s positions is that he has consistently been less willing to lead with bold proposals of his own, but consistently followed in the footsteps of other leaders.
Anita Dunn
Politics is not predictions and politics is not observations. Politics is what we do. Politics is what we do, politics is what we create, by what we work for, by what we hope for and what we dare to imagine.
Paul Wellstone
The unity of Christendom is not a luxury, but a necessity. The world will go limping until Christ’s prayer that all may be one is answered. We must have unity, not at all costs, but at all risks. A unified Church is the only offering we dare present to the coming Christ, for in it alone will He find room to dwell.
Charles Brent
How dare these boxers challenge me with their primitive skills? It makes me angry.
Mike Tyson
I should not dare to call my soul my own.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
That come before the swallow dares, and take
The winds of March with beauty.
William Shakespeare
I always say, dare to struggle, dare to grin.
Wavy Gravy
Master the divine techniques of the Art of Peace and no enemy will dare to challenge you.
Morihei Ueshiba
People are so intimidated by the gay movement that nobody will say why…they won’t say why they don’t want gay marriage…they don’t dare to say because homosexuality is wrong, it’s harmful for society, it’s abnormal, it’s unnatural, the people who are doing it can overcome it and should overcome it
Scott Lively
Much that is natural, to the will must yield.
Men manufacture both machine and soul,
And use what they imperfectly control
To dare a future from the taken routes.
Thom Gunn
The medical profession (is) a conspiracy to hide its own shortcomings. No doubt the same may be said of all professions. They are all conspiracies against the laity… (U)ntil there is a practicable alternative to blind trust in the doctor, the truth about the doctor is so terrible that we dare not face it.
George Bernard Shaw
Only those who have dared to let go can dare to re-enter.
Meister Eckhart
Clearly independent journalists – domestic journalists – run a high risk if they dare to take on serious investigative work.
David Remnick
Germany’s greatness makes it impossible for her to do without the ocean, but the ocean also proves that even in the distance, and on its farther side, without Germany and the German Emperor, no great decision dare henceforth be taken.
Wilhelm II
When you are young, if you can define your long-term dream, – something that you can get passionate about – solidify your values, dare to take a risk and then put a plan together to accomplish that dream… that could be the difference between success and failure in life.
Bill Capodagli
This is a dream that I have been dreaming to live! From watching ‘Double Dare’ to hosting it! I am ready for a summer of slime and nose-picking.
Liza Koshy
Perhaps the way to meet tomorrow’s challenges is not to use yesterday’s solutions, but to dare to think the previously unthinkable, to speak the previously unspeakable, and to try that which was previously out of the question.
Neale Donald Walsch
Those who dare to interpret God’s will must never claim Him as an asset for one nation or group rather than another.
Robert Runcie
If the Philippines secure their independence after heroic and stubborn conflicts, they can rest assured that neither England, nor Germany, nor France, and still less Holland, will dare to take up what Spain has been unable to hold.
Jose Rizal
Dance has become an exclusionary enterprise. To participate, one must be thinner than thin, of pleasing form, flexible, athletic and young. If you are not all these things, you will be allowed to dance in the privacy of your own living room. You just wouldn’t dare to put yourself onstage.
Clive Barnes
People who pigeonhole us for our queerness are not people I’m interested in knowing. They’re so boring. How dare you be so boring? Grow up. Get some Ray-Bans.
Ben Hopkins
I have tried (I am not sure how successfully) to write plain tales. I dare not say they are simple; there is not a simple page, a simple word, on earth — for all pages, all words, predicate the universe, whose most notorious attribute is its complexity.
Jorge Luis Borges
You must set down all the rules to your cat at the beginning of your relationship. You cannot add rules as you go along. Once these rules are set, you must never, under any circumstances, break any of them. Dare to break a rule, and you will never live it down. Trust me.
Kathy Young
Often, when a girl has a crush on a boy, her friend will dare her to speak to him or ask for a pencil, or better yet, let him know that she has a crush. Pretty risky stuff… It happens thousands of times a day in the lives of teenagers everywhere. Putting yourself out there. Daring to expose your true feelings.
Jazz Jennings
Amsterdam is a breeding ground for new creative pursuits in many areas fueled by a tolerance and openness to ideas unlike any world city I’ve been to. There is something for everyone here, especially when you dare to go off the beaten path.
Marcel Wanders
Dare to dream of your great success.
Mary Anne Radmacher
Both of you [Elie Wiesel and Frank Moore Cross] are giants, dare I say nephilim [giants; see Genesis 6:4; Numbers 13:33], in your world.
Hershel Shanks
You can spill drinks on me, even spit on me. I’ll just laugh about it. But If you dare to hurt my friends… I WON’T FORGIVE YOU!
Eiichiro Oda
I like Valentine’s Day. The trouble is the florists and the candy-makers and the card people are all advertising so much, you don’t dare let the day go by without making an offering, whether you mean it or not. Money exceeds affection.
Andy Rooney
I remember when I heard the words “Biblical criticism” in my town, it was with disdain: “Biblical criticism? How dare you?”.
Elie Wiesel
Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.
Dale Carnegie
The mere existence of ‘Buffy’ proves the declinists wrong about one thing: Hollywood commercialism can produce great art. Complex and evolving characters. Playful language. Joy and sorrow, pathos and elation. Episodes that dare to be different – to tell stories in silence or in song. Big themes and terrible choices.
Virginia Postrel
Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare.
If there are still men who really want to live in this world, they should first dare to speak out, to laugh, to cry, to be angry, to accuse, to fight-that they may at least cleanse this accursed place of its accursed atmosphere!
Lu Xun
Happy are those who dare courageously to defend what they love.
If the past year were offered me again, And choice of good and ill before me set Would I accept the pleasure with the pain Or dare to wish that we had never met?
Lady Gregory
Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I like when people do cool stuff that might be a little off-the-wall to anybody else, but they found a way to make it work for that day. I wouldn’t recommend that people wear it every day like that, but if you every once in a while just spice it up, I like that. I dare to be different.
Iman Shumpert
And now ’tis man who dares assault the sky … And as we come to claim our promised place, Aim only to replay the good you gave, And warm with human love the chill of space.
Thomas Goddard Bergin
‘Thirteen’ was really hard on my family. I wrote this movie about them and their flaws and imperfections and what it was like growing up. It was from one kid’s perspective and not a well rounded one. You get older, and it’s like, ‘How dare I portray my father as being a totally vacant, careless schmuck?’
Nikki Reed
Frodo drew himself up, and again Sam was startled by his words and his stern voice. ‘On the Precious? How dare you?’ he said. ‘Think! Would you commit your promise to that, Smeagol? It will hold you. But it is more treacherous than you are. It may twist your words. Beware!
J. R. R. Tolkien
Tis well when we dare not do a thing we think is not good and fair; but not so well when we think a thing not good and fair because we dare not do it.
Sigrid Undset
Bush is going in the wrong way. And I dare say, that is what the strategy of his administration is, is just to wipe out government’s purpose for any social and economic justice at all. And I’m going to take the country in an opposite direction than he’s taking it.
Dennis Kucinich
No man is liberated from fear who dare not see his place in the world as it is; no man can achieve the greatness of which he is capable until he has allowed himself to see his own littleness.
Bertrand Russell
In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
Michael Jackson
A committee appointed by the President of a company will report what the President wishes to hear. Would they dare report otherwise?.
W. Edwards Deming
How dare you have wino tell me not to do drugs.
Bill Hicks
At the time I write, the glory of the truffle has now reached its culmination. Who would dare to say that he has been at a dinner where there was not a piГЁce truffГ©e? Who has not felt his mouth water in hearing truffles a la provencale spoken of? In fine, the truffle is the very diamond of gastronomy.
Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
There now ensued a series of incidents which transported me to the opposite extremes of ecstasy and horror; incidents which I tremble to recall and dare not seek to interpret.
H. P. Lovecraft
James O’Keefe is a journalist, doing the work ‘real’ journalists don’t dare, and has been conducting undercover investigations for years with dozens of scalps collected along the way. The more the ‘true’ journalists who back the Democrat machine attack him, the more emboldened he becomes to pursue his next project.
Katie Pavlich
The misery of us, that are born great, We are forced to woo because none dare woo us.
John Webster
When an ecstatic is asked the question, What is it that love dares the self to do? she will answer: Love dares the self to leave itself behind, to enter into poverty.
Anne Carson
In the year 1456 … a Comet was seen passing Retrograde between the Earth and the sun… Hence I dare venture to foretell, that it will return again in the year 1758.
Edmond Halley
Nor public flame, nor private, dares to shine; Nor human spark is left, nor glimpse divine! Lo! thy dread empire, Chaos! is restored; Light dies before thy uncreating word: Thy hand, great Anarch! lets the curtain fall; And universal darkness buries all.
Alexander Pope
How dare you? How dare you create a world in which there is such misery that is not our fault? It’s not right, it’s utterly, utterly evil. Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid god who creates a world that is so full of injustice and pain?
Stephen Fry
A young man should ask himself not if it is his duty to go to the heathen, but if he may dare stay at home. The command is so plain: “Go.”
Lottie Moon
The freedom now desired by many is not freedom to do and dare but freedom from care and worry.
James Truslow Adams
No, by my soul, I never in my life
Did hear a challenge urged more modestly,
Unless a brother should a brother dare
To gentle exercise and proof of arms.
William Shakespeare
This is where you can find your soul if you dare. Where you can touch that part of you that you’ve never dared look at before. Do not come here and ask me to show you how to draw a face. Ask me to help you find the wind.
Laurie Halse Anderson
The youth who, like a woman, loves to adorn his person, has renounced all claim to wisdom and to glory; glory is due to those only who dare to associate with pain, and have trampled pleasure under their feet.
Francois Fenelon
Guess, if you can, and choose, if you dare.
[Lat., Devine, si tu peux, et choisis, si tu l’oses.]
Pierre Corneille
Christians alone are in a position to rescue the perishing. We dare not settle down to try to live as if things were ‘normal.’ Nothing is normal while sin and lust and death roam the world, pouncing upon one and another till the whole population has been destroyed.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
The slave power dares anything, and it can be conquered only by the united masses of the people. From Congress to the people, I appeal.
Charles Sumner
The adventure of the Christian life begins when we dare to do what we would never tackle without Christ.
William Penn
I have truly been inspired by the struggle and triumphs of so many women that dare to break new ground in all aspects of society, and those who have pushed the boundaries of human imagination.
Christina Koch
Luck?” Drizzt replied. “Perhaps. But more often, I dare to say, luck is simply the advantage a true warrior gains in excuting the correct course of action.
R. A. Salvatore
Sometimes life coughs up coincidences no writer of fiction would dare copy.
Stephen King
The city of Memphis has demonstrated that neither character nor standing avails the Negro if he dares to protect himself against the white man or become his rival.
Ida B. Wells
Dare to do something worthy of transportation and a prison, if you mean to be anybody.
Dare to begin! He who postpones living rightly is like the rustic who waits for the river to run out before he crosses.
Obviously, despite hard work and heroic efforts, many dreams don’t come true. But if we don’t dare to dream and then throw muscle, heart, and soul into making the dream come true, then WoW Projects-and all of the emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and financial riches that they bring will surely NOT be our lot in life!
Tom Peters
Everything is possible to him that dares.
Albert Goodwill Spalding
Construct your determination with sustained effort, controlled attention, and concentrated energy. Opportunities never come to those who wait … they are captured by those who dare to attack.
Paul J. Meyer
For style beyond the genius never dares.
Well, I dare not allow myself any illusions, and I am afraid it may never happen that Father and Mother will really appreciate my art. It is not their fault; we do not see the same things with the same eyes, or have the same thoughts raised in us by them. They will never be able to understand what painting is.
Vincent Van Gogh
There are, I dare say, many lovers who would never have been drawn to each other had they met for the first time, as, say, they met the second time.
James M. Barrie
The way Ederson plays is so brave. To dare to play like that is bravery and it also enables City to play with a much higher press. They are able to really press because they know any ball in behind he will sweep up.
Kasper Schmeichel
The music industry seems scary to me. I mean the film industry is crazy enough so the music industry to me seems like the wild, wild West. Like I would just never dare.
Anna Kendrick
I was made, by the law, a criminal, not because of what I had done, but because of what I stood for, because of what I thought, because of my conscience… If I had my time over I would do the same again. So would any man who dares call himself a man.
Nelson Mandela
Trust in the person’s promise who dares to refuse what they fear they cannot perform.
Charles Spurgeon
There’s still, dare I say it, a cultural propaganda against the Irish, that we are, as women, ‘feisty.’ I hate that word.
Dervla Kirwan
I dare not say with Paul that I am the slave of Christ, but my highest aspiration and desire is to be the slave of Christ.
George MacDonald
The only valid reason to use clichГ©s is in the speech of a character. Cliches are indications of sloppy writing. The writer does not respect the scene he is trying to dramatize enough to fashion it through precise prose and imaginative imagery. From the book Dare to be a Great Writer: 329 Keys to Powerful Fiction by
Leonard Bishop
Christopher Hitchens was a wit, a charmer, and a troublemaker, and to those who knew him well, he was a gift from – dare I say it – God.
Graydon Carter
The God we worship is Jesus – He is the image of the invisible God – and if we dare seek Him for who He really is rather than pursue an idea of Him that fits into our tidy boxes, He will blow our minds.
Brooke Fraser
Best feelings are when you dare to say words to someone you love.
Istvan Molnar
I don’t have any hidden talents but if you dare me to do something I’ll go after it big time.
Izabel Goulart
I want to make films that are political and social. Films with a message or an idea. Films that dare to ask.
Juliette Binoche
You shouldn’t dare a person who doesn’t have anything left to lose.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
There are moments when I dare not think of it, but there are others when I rise in spirit to where she ever dwells; then I can thank God that I love the noblest lady in the world, the most gracious and beautiful, and that there was nothing in my love that made her fall short in her high duty.
Anthony Hope
A lot of women say to me, “Polly, why aren’t there more clothes out there that we can wear?” And I don’t agree with them! There are clothes out there that they can wear – it’s just that they don’t dare to wear them.
Polly Allen Mellen
If we dare to win, we should also dare to lose
Lee Chong Wei
The bizarre trend in mountaineers is not the risk they take, but the large degree to which they value life. They are not crazy because they don’t dare, they’re crazy because they do. These people tend to enjoy life to the fullest, laugh the hardest, travel the most, and work the least.
Lisa Morgan
To keep me from sin and straying from Him, God has used devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. My life vows destined to be spent in the light irradiating from the tabernacle, and it is to the Heart of Jesus that I dare go for the solution of all my problems
Pope John XXIII
It can be very lonely knowing that you have things to say but you daren’t say them. Knowing that you could contribute to something but you don’t dare quite do it.
Bob Mortimer
Don’t you dare take the lazy way. It’s too easy to excuse yourself because of your ancestry. Don’t let me catch you doing it! Now — look close at me so you will remember. Whatever you do, it will be you who do.
John Steinbeck
Dare to dream, live with passion. Make your life an epic extraordinary adventure!
Nik Halik
Some of the press who speak loudly about the freedom of the press are themselves the enemies of freedom. Countless people dare not say a thing because they know it will be picked up and made a song of by the press. That limits freedom.
Geoffrey Fisher
A wise nation should cultivate a political spirit that allows opponents to cooperate without fearing an automatic execution from their core supporters. Who knew that the real rogues in American politics would be the ones who dare to get along?
Jon Meacham
We need to exert ourselves that much more, and break out of the vicious cycle of dependence imposed on us by the financially powerful: those in command of immense market power and those who dare to fashion the world in their own image.
Nelson Mandela
It’s a question of prudence. Nobody has a high opinion of fishwives but who would dare offend them while walking through the fish market.
Nicolas Chamfort
There is only one you. God wanted you to be you. Don’t you dare change just because you’re outnumbered!
Charles R. Swindoll
Don’t get older just to get wiser. If you get older, you will be wiser, I believe that – if you dare. But get older because it’s fun!
Maya Angelou
…I just pulled a pretty big job and needed to hide out for awhile.” “…Where’s all the loot?” “That, as my cousin Nord would say, is where my improvised lie falls apart.” Artemis put two and two together and arrived at a very unpleasant four. “You were here to rob me!” “No, I wasn’t. How dare you?!
Eoin Colfer
All of humanity is in peril of extinction if each one of us does not dare, now and henceforth, always to tell only the truth, and all the truth, and to do so promptly – right now.
R. Buckminster Fuller
It would almost seem that – dare I say this – private transportation is more efficient than mass public-transit!
Steven Crowder
You have the older generation like Iris Murdoch and Angus Wilson who are not as old as Graham Greene, but still are coming on. I dare say anyone who knew the scene better than I know it could fill it in with a very satisfactory supply of novels.
William Golding
I was accustomed to walking alone. I’d find other people who agreed with me, but they also said, “I wouldn’t dare mention it.” I was the only one who would say, “We’ve got to stand.” And they said, “Well, yes. And after you make it safe, then I’ll stand, too. But you have to make it safe.”
Harry Hay
I dare you to be great! I challenge you to be great in every single thing you do!
Eric Thomas
It’s nothing really. It’s the unique presentation that makes me look good in the action scenes. Why did I dare do them? That’s a funny question! Why do I act? Why do I breathe!
Amitabh Bachchan
One must dare to be happy.
Gertrude Stein
Dare to think for yourself.
As honour, love, obedience, troops of friends, / I must not look to have; but, in their stead, / Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honour, breath, / Which the poor heart would fain deny, and dare not” (5.3.25-28).
William Shakespeare
How dare you treat your soil like dirt!
Joel Salatin
Whether the Bushes, or whoever they are, they always end up in the end with the money and the ability to really blow away anybody who dares challenge them.
Chris Matthews
There may be babblers, wholly ignorant of mathematics, who dare to condemn my hypothesis, upon the authority of some part of the Bible twisted to suit their purpose. I value them not, and scorn their unfounded judgment.
Nicolaus Copernicus
So, my brother and I, over the last two years, went back through Scripture and pulled every (passage) we could in relation to parenting children, guarding their hearts, teaching them, loving them, being patient. And then we worked through 40 principles and wrote The Love Dare for Parents.
Alex Kendrick
Nobody calls me a racist when I do redneck jokes. Jeff Foxworthy can do as many ‘You might be a redneck jokes’ as he wants, but I’m telling you as soon as a guy like that does a black joke or something – ‘How dare you!’ I totally think it’s unfair.
Carlos Mencia
Somebody, after all, had to make a start. What we wrote and said is also believed by many others. They just don’t dare express themselves as we did.
Sophie Scholl
Let us replace sentimentalism by realism and dare to uncover those simple and terrible laws which, be they seen or unseen, pervade and govern.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The time to take counsel of your fears is before you make an important battle decision. That’s the time to listen to every fear you can imagine! When you have collected all the facts and fears and made your decision, turn off all your fears and go ahead!
George S. Patton
Who dare to love their country, and be poor.
Alexander Pope
You must dare to do the thing you think cannot be done… as this is the only way to discover that there’s nothing you can’t do.
Guy Finley
Dare to be the adults we want our children to be.
BrenГ© Brown
Dare to turn life on its end, and you may find that topsy-turvy is a truer perspective than turvy-topsy.
Robert Breault
You’d better not be trying to steal that,” she said. The boy shrugged and reached for the small rolling suitcase at her feet. “I wouldn’t dare.” “Because I’m an excellent yeller.” “I don’t doubt it.” “And fighter. My cousin gave me this nail file… the thing’s just like a switchblade.
Ally Carter
My intention was to write a chapter of the moral history of my country and I chose Dublin for the scene because that city seemed to me the centre of paralysis.
James Joyce
Be sure the safest rule is that we should not dare to live in any scene in which we dare not die.
Lewis Carroll
What you want to acquire, you should dare to acquire by any means. What you want to see, even though it is with difficulty, you should see. You should not let it pass, thinking there will be another chance to see it or acquire it. It is quite unusual to have a second chance to materialize your desire.
Yosa Buson
How some dare scorn (as if a fabulous lie) that they should rise whom death to dust doth bind — and like to beasts, a beastly life they lead, who naught attend save death when they are dead.
William Alexander, 1st Earl of Stirling
Leadership is a dare – and the dare is, ‘Are you willing to show up?’
Robert Holden
I live my life because I dare. I dare to show up when everyone else might hide their faces and hide their bodies in shame.
Gabourey Sidibe
I will never ever support a people swap where you can send a 13 year old child, unaccompanied to a country without supervision. Never, it’ll be over my dead body. How dare they.
Joe Hockey
I believe that the most important single thing, beyond discipline and creativity is daring to dare.
Maya Angelou
Spring has again returned.
The Earth is like a child that knows many poems.
Many, O so many. For the hardship
of such long learning she receives the prize.
Strict was her teacher.
The white in the old man’s beard pleases us.
Now, what to call green, to call blue,
we dare to ask: She knows, She knows!
Rainer Maria Rilke
And priests dare babble of a God of peace,
Even whilst their hands are red with guiltless blood,
Murdering the while, uprooting every germ
Of truth, exterminating, spoiling all,
Making the earth a slaughter – house!
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Don’t you dare call me arrogant!If ever I had any at all-which I deny!- how much could I possibly have left after having been ridden over rough-shod by you and Thomas, do you imagine?
Georgette Heyer
You can’t keep treating people differently under the law because of their differences. That’s not America. I dare say that’s not even a good conservative value. We’re all supposed to have an equal shot.
Dustin Lance Black
We are chained to this life by a chain of gold, and we dare not sever it for fear of what lies beyond the drop.
Cassandra Clare
As an artist you actually do have to make a choice to be an outsider. If you’re an outsider you have the freedom to say what people on the inside don’t dare to say.
Connie Nielsen
Children have adopted a consumerist attitude – I dare you to entertain me.
Walter Dean Myers
We enter into solitude first of all to meet our Lord and to be with him and him alone. Only in the context of grace can we face our sin; only in the place of healing do we dare to show our wounds; only with a singleminded attention to Christ can we give up our clinging fears and face our own true nature.
Henri Nouwen
Don’t ever dare to take your college as a matter of course – because, like democracy and freedom, many people you’ll never know have broken their hearts to get it for you.
Alice Miller
Pleasantness was the machismo of the Midwest. There was something athletic about it. You flexed your face into a smile and let it hover there like the dare of a cat.
Lorrie Moore
There can be no vulnerability without risk; there can be no community without vulnerability; there can be no peace, and ultimately no life, without community.
M. Scott Peck
So you should be able to see them clearly in your imagination. We always find it easier to visualize what we fear; it’s what keeps us afraid of the dark.
Michael Scott
If the prior distribution, at which I am frankly guessing, has little or no effect on the result, then why bother; and if it has a large effect, then since I do not know what I am doing how would I dare act on the conclusions drawn?
Richard Hamming
Miracles occur, If you dare to call those spasmodic Tricks of radiance miracles. The wait’s begun again, The long wait for the angel, For that rare, random descent.
Sylvia Plath
The future belongs to him that does and dares.
Berton Braley
Don’t wait for miracles. Your whole life is a miracle. Live it up and dare to leave an impact. There is no rehearsal.
Ziad K. Abdelnour
Let me admonish you, first of all, to go alone; to refuse the good models, even those which are sacred in the imagination of men, and dare to love God without mediator or veil.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Talking about weight at all – even your own – has become increasingly tricky, especially if you dare to say that you would quite like to lose a few pounds.
Susanna Reid
Success comes to those that dare to dream dreams and are foolish enough to try and make them come true.
Vinod Khosla
Tears stung her eyes. She sank her knees next to the sleeping bench and gently raked strands of golden hair from him forehead. “Don’t you die. don’t you dare. I forbid it.” As if Han Alister had ever listened to anything she said.
Cinda Williams Chima
One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight, for a very long time, of the shore.
Andre Gide
There is no limit to what this law can do for you; dare to believe in your own ideal; think of the ideal as an already accomplished fact.
Charles F. Haanel
I was watching Batman, the TV show, on TV Land, on the cable. And Robin said to Batman, Golly, Batman! Why is the Joker so evil!? And Batman said, Careful, Robin. The criminal mind sees the world through a prism the solid citizen dare not peer through. Batman has a more nuanced worldview than the president.
Dana Gould
Was there ever a more horrible blasphemy than the statement that all the knowledge of God is confined to this or that book? How dare men call God infinite, and yet try to compress Him within the covers of a little book!
Swami Vivekananda
It’s not the end of the world at all,” he said. “It’s only the end for us. The world will go on just the same, only we shan’t be in it. I dare say it will get along all right without us.
Nevil Shute
Well, what do you owe yourself? Do you dare take time out to listen to the grass grow, or can you even afford the expense of getting far enough away from life’s daily cacophony to hear it grow if you took the time?
Vincent Price
She lacks confidence, she craves admiration insatiably. She lives on the reflections of herself in the eyes of others. She does not dare to be herself.
Anais Nin
Give humanity hope and it will dare and suffer joyfully, not counting the cost – hope with laughter on her banner and on her face the fresh beauty of morning.
John Elof Boodin
ABC’s intelligently hilarious sitcom ‘Modern Family’ depicts a gay-male marriage in which both partners are refreshingly dimensional, believable human beings. The writers dare to make them flawed and thus fully delineated, but they’re not flawed in the silly, stereotypical ways that once dominated such portrayals.
Tom Shales
I didn’t dare let my mind wander off.
Kate Bush
I never feel that I have comprehended an emotion, or fully lived even the smallest events, until I have reflected upon it in my journal; my pen is my truest confidant, holding in check the passions and disappointments that I dare not share even with my beloved.
Francine Mathews
There were only 170 neurologists in Britain then and, whether spoken or unspoken, there was this insidious feeling. How can Bannister, a mere athlete, probably spoilt by all the publicity and fame, dare aspire to neurology? But I’d done a lot of research, and my academic record was very good.
Roger Bannister
Because that’s just the way it is, and don’t sleep on what you did before, you know, because it can… not hurt you, but you can find yourself sleeping on something that happened in the past, but you dare to progress and there is always room for progression.
Thierry Henry
I cherish the dreams of yesterday and dare not dwell on the err’s of my past whose fate has been long decided, and effect I can not change. For the dreams of yesterday are the challenges of today, and the hope for tomorrow.
Mark Twain
I’m so damn lucky to still be here at 85. If I get a hangnail, I don’t dare complain! Life is good. I wake up humming.
Rita Moreno
Nobody wants to do it – not real change, not soul change, not the painful molecular change required to truly become who you need to be. Nobody ever does real transformation for fun. Nobody ever does it on a dare. You do it only when your back is so far against the wall that you have no choice anymore.
Elizabeth Gilbert
