Being on a book tour is like being on the seesaw when you’re a little kid.

Anne Lamott
Never try to leap from a standstill.
Mason Cooley

Jim Marrs
Not to be too preachy, but I would really recommend to people, if you get the chance, to trust yourselves to leap without a net, because that will build the confidence. You know, you might shock yourself with how much you don’t need a net because you can catch yourself.

a grammatical error:
a failure to leap
the precipice
between “he”
and “I.
Linda Pastan
Dance, v.i. To leap about to the sound of tittering music, preferably with arms about your neighbor’s wife or daughter.

Brian Dennehy
Something funny certainly happens when palladium and platinum come into contact with hydrogen gas; it’s one of the great mysteries still waiting to be solved on the periodic table. But it’s quite a leap from ‘something funny’ to cold fusion.

Richard Branson
It’s different for every project. Some parts are quicker than others to get and know; sometimes right up until the last moment you’re just praying that something will click.

Sally Hawkins

Cheryl Strayed
You can be active with the activists or sleep in with the sleepers while you’re waiting for the Great Leap Forwards.

Scott Bakula
Your first book is the only one that matters. Perhaps a writer should write only that one. That is the one moment when you make the big leap; the opportunity to express yourself is offered that once, and you untie the knot within you then or never again.
Italo Calvino
Anybody can leap off a building.
Daniel Craig
The staging for ‘Monsters’ is all about me getting free. In the beginning I’m like tied, in a dark place… until I am scared no more, and I’m taking the lead of my life, I’m being the queen of my life, I’m ruling the world! In the end I’m taking a risk, but I’m taking the leap of faith.
Saara Aalto
What’s important is that you make the leap. Jump high and hard with intention and heart. Pay no mind to the vision that the commission made up. It’s up to you to make your life. Take what you have and stack it up like a tower of teetering blocks. Build your dream around that.

Warren Winiarski
No one wants to see a failed Lambeau Leap.
Davante Adams
Any good movie or script usually, if they’re doing their job, gives the highest platform possible for an actor to leap off of, and that script was very high up there.

Justin Theroux
He who falls in love meets a worse fate than he who leaps from a rock.

Eddie Redmayne
Death was not to be a leap: it was to be a long descent under thickening shadows.

Honor Tracy
Atheists are my brothers and sisters of a different faith, and every word they speak speaks of faith. Like me, they go as far as the legs of reason will carry them — and then they leap.

Benjamin Franklin
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is a leap forward to a fairer and less confusing tax system.
Chris Sununu
If we overcome the pull and “get up and get at it,” we will have won a victory. We have kept our own resolve. We can then move to other things, for by small means great things are accomplished. Thus, even this one small step is also in another sense a giant leap.
Stephen Covey
The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it Intuition or what you will, the solution comes to you and you don’t know how or why.
Albert Einstein
The brain may devise laws for the blood, but a hot temper leaps o’er a cold decree.
William Shakespeare
When confronted with the order and beauty of the universe and the strange coincidences of nature, it’s very tempting to take the leap of faith from science into religion. I am sure many physicists want to. I only wish they would admit it.
Tony Rothman
Reading was my only escape from reality. Through books, I could be whoever I wanted. I could fall in love with the handsome prince, travel to exotic places, and take the leap that almost always had a happy ending.
Teresa Mummert
A great accomplishment shouldn’t be the end of the road, just the starting point for the next leap forward.
Harvey Mackay
Positivism eliminates any kind of natural law principle – for example, that there are economic laws which can be transgressed only at your peril. With positivism, there is a tendency to leap into ad hoc economic theory.
Murray Rothbard
But failure has to be an option in art and in exploration – because it’s a leap of faith. And no important endeavor that required innovation was done without risk. You have to be willing to take those risks.
James Cameron
Life is an affirmation, not a defamation. Life means living. Life means taking that one tiny or giant leap beyond what you know you can do, or simply beyond what you know. It is in these moments that we live.

Meg Cabot
I know publishing now more as an author than with occasional peaks inside those elite offices than as an industry insider. It was difficult publishing a novel the first time around, while working behind the scenes, knowing all that has to happen to make a book a success and to still make the leap as an author.
Jennifer Gilmore
If I were just your average 23-year-old girl, and I called the police to say that there were strange men sleeping on my lawn and following me to Starbucks, they would leap into action. But because I am a famous person, well, sorry, ma’am, there’s nothing we can do. It makes no sense.
Jennifer Lawrence
It took me a long time to make that leap to being a grown-up and responsible adult because I carried on being a child actor into my late twenties. It’s OK to be precocious when you’re young, but when you’re a man of about 27 or 28 and playing a 17-year-old in a TV show, it kind of prolongs your childhood.
Dexter Fletcher
Don’t you want to take a leap of faith? Or become an old man, filled with regret, waiting to die alone!

Denzel Washington
The real Oxford is a close corporation of jolly, untidy, lazy, good-for-nothing humorous old men, who have been electing their own successors ever since the world began and who intend to go on with it. They’ll squeeze under the Revolution or leap over it when the time comes, don’t you worry.
C. S. Lewis
After we finished filming ‘Sinbad,’ I went out to Los Angeles for meetings and was invited to a pre-Oscars party. I met Victoria Beckham, Kenneth Branagh, and Gary Oldman. That was quite a leap for me.
Elliot Knight
The ladder of success isn’t a ladder. It’s a series of steps with leaps interspersed along the way.
Seth Godin
In each life there comes at least one moment, which, if recognized and seized, transforms the course of that life forever. Rely, therefore, on radical trust, even though the moment may call for you to leap empty-handed into the void.
Ralph Blum
Faith requires a leap; otherwise, it just becomes science.
Zal Batmanglij
I was engaged in what I believe to be the most thrilling industry in the world-aviation. My heart still leaps when I see a tiny two-seater plane soaring gracefully through the sky. Our great airlines awe me. Yet I know they were not produced in a day or a decade.
William A. Patterson
For me, prayer is an upward leap of the heart, an untroubled glance towards heaven, a cry of gratitude and love which I utter from the depths of sorrow as well as from the heights of joy.

He has drawn back, only in order to have enough room for his leap
Friedrich Nietzsche
Shun the incremental and go for the leap.
Jack Welch

Charles Sumner
Don’t judge a book by its cover
George Eliot
I love flinging everything I buy behind me onto the back-seat of the car: it’s always full of packages when I travel, when I leap in my car!
Sonia Rykiel
Since my romance novels had all been thrillers as well, it wasn’t such a leap for me to move into the straight thriller genre. The most difficult part, I think, was being accepted as a thriller writer. Once you’ve written romance, unfortunately, critics will never stop calling you a ‘former romance author.’
Tess Gerritsen
All growth is a leap in the dark.
Henry Miller
The Christian faith does not call for us to put our minds on the shelf, to fly in the face of common sense and history, or to make a leap of faith into the dark. The rational person, fully apprised of the evidence, can confidently believe.
William Lane Craig
When His Holiness won the Nobel Peace Prize, there was a quantum leap. He is not seen as solely a Tibetan anymore; he belongs to the world.
Richard Gere
I broke my heart in two
So hard I struck.
What matter? for I know
That out of rock,
Out of a desolate source,
Love leaps upon its course.
William Butler Yeats
Just in relation to women, it’s not that huge an imaginative leap to see the connection between the Taliban and the Catholic Church.
Peter Mullan
If you hold on to certain things that are comfortable and maybe a bad pattern for you psychologically, then you rob yourself of the experience of the next thing that happens when you do start to let go. It’s only by trusting that, and by the leaps of faith, that you remember that’s true.
Rachael Yamagata
I bought into the myth that you are not complete without romantic love, without a mate. And it can really distract you from your goals. But sometimes you have to take a leap.
Diane Lane
After I played him for the first time, I said ‘Let’s see. He’s four or five inches taller. He’s 40 or 50 pounds heavier. His vertical leap is at least as good as mine. He can get up and down the floor as well as I can. And he’s smart. The real problem with all this is I have to show up.
Bill Russell
A vote to leave would be a leap into the dark that would put our status as a science superpower at risk. That is why I will be joining Boris in making a positive case for Britain’s future in a reformed E.U.
Jo Johnson
They are denied access to the more advanced techniques of releasing the kundalini energy, which bring about quantum leaps in self-awareness.
Frederick Lenz
Acting is an imaginative leap, really, isn’t it? And imaginations prosper in different circumstances. And it’s being able – I can’t tell you how one does, but one tries to read those circumstances correctly.
John Hurt
Contemporary audiences, other than those making a deliberate historical leap, would find, say, the 1931 ‘Dracula’ impossibly slow.
Andrew Tudor
All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.
Henry Miller
Don’t be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can’t cross a chasm in two small jumps.
David Lloyd George
When I get moved to write a story, I don’t question the story. I dive right in, and I try to ignore the voices that are chattering away at me: ‘You can’t do that’, ‘You shouldn’t do that’. I just sort of leap and take a chance and go for it.
David Bergen
There is no map that can show you how to leap. The map for this is somewhere in our own imagination.
Swami Paramananda
It takes creativity at every stage to make the discontinuous leap from one level of knowledge to the next. These discontinuous leaps of understanding lead to insights that in turn lead to value creation.

‘Vert’ is, like, straight to the top, like a vertical leap.
Lil Uzi Vert
All the preparation in the world doesn’t avail you if you can’t make that imaginative leap and put yourself in the position of the characters you’ve created, to imagine what it’s like to be somebody else.
Michael Chabon
If you’re unwilling to leave someplace you’ve outgrown, you will never reach your full potential. To be the best, you have to constantly be challenging yourself, raising the bar, pushing the limits of what you can do. Don’t stand still, leap forward.
Ronda Rousey
It’s human nature to take the easy route and leap at storage methods that promise quick and convenient ways to remove visible clutter. Putting things away creates the illusion that the clutter problem has been solved. But sooner or later, all the storage units are full, and the room once again overflows with things.
Marie Kondo
Skydiving is something I’ve never done! And I am very excited to take the leap with a community of like-minded courageous women.
Anne Bancroft

Richard Koch
Research the leaders in fields related to yours, synthesize their findings, and see how you can apply their hard-won wisdom to your work. Stand on their shoulders, and then make a leap into new territory that is distinctly yours.
Brendon Burchard
The pre-human creature from which man evolved was unlike any other living thing in its malicious viciousness toward its own kind. Humanization was not a leap forward but a groping toward survival.
Eric Hoffer
I am much perturbed by this business of sickness. Our bodies seem so easily to leap into the saddle where our minds should be. People who are ill become changelings.
Winifred Holtby
The most dangerous thing in the world is to try to leap a chasm in two jumps.
David Lloyd George
There is always a certain leap of faith that editors have made with their nonfiction writers. If the trust is broken, things can get very embarrassing for the writers and the publisher.
A. Scott Berg
I am the jongleur. I leap and pirouette, and make you laugh. I make fun of those in power, and I show you how puffed up and conceited are the big shots who go around making wars in which we are the ones who get slaughtered. I reveal them for what they are. I pull out the plug, and… pssss… they deflate.
Dario Fo
…I believe, with Gandhi, that we need to take an imaginative leap forward toward fresh and generous idealism for the sake of all humanity – that we neeed to renew this ancient wisdom of nonviolence, to strive for a disarmed world, and to create a culture of nonviolence.
Mairead Corrigan
This should tell you everything you need to know about guys. They only go after what they know they can get. We girls, on the other hand, aim really high. We take a leap.

Psychologists pay lip service to the scientific method, and use it whenever it is convenient; but when it isn’t they make wild leaps of their uncontrolled fancy.
Anthony Standen
Sometimes a leap of faith doesn’t pan out.
Edwin Catmull
I’ve wanted to write ever since I’ve gotten into comics. I wrote little things for myself when I was doing mini-comics and things, before becoming a professional. But I just figure at some point or another, I’ve got to make the leap. I just have to do it.
Lee Bermejo
You sit at the board and suddenly your heart leaps. Your hand trembles to pick up the piece and move it. But what chess teaches you is that you must sit there calmly and think about whether it’s really a good idea and whether there are other, better ideas.
Stanley Kubrick
I remember myself as an asthmatic child, having great difficulties at 7, 8 and 9 years old, falling totally in love with ‘Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle’ and dreaming of having his strength to leap into trees and throw mighty lions to the ground.
Gene Roddenberry
Spirituality leaps where science cannot yet follow, because science must always test and measure, and much of reality and human experience is immeasurable.

Tama J. Kieves
It’s a leap of faith doing any serialised storytelling.
J. J. Abrams
And as he spoke of understanding, I looked up and saw the rainbow leap with flames of many colors over me.
Black Elk
If God made the natural laws, why could he not violate them when it was a particularly significant moment for him to do so? And if you accept the idea that Christ was also divine, which I do, then his Resurrection is not in itself a great logical leap.
Francis Collins
He was mostly leaping tall buildings in the beginning. There were cases where he would leap off a tall building or swoop down, and at that point he would look like he was flying, I suppose. It was just natural to draw him like that.
Joe Shuster
There’s a wall between you and what you want and you got to leap it.

Evel Knievel

Charles Bukowski
With acting, I started very young, and I’d performed for a lot of children in boarding schools, late at night after the dormitory lights were out. I’d have a flashlight, and I’d be Count Dracula, or Shakespeare, or Yogi Bear, and leap from bunk to bunk. I loved the laughter; I liked the way it made people feel.
C. C. H. Pounder
That’s kind of a leap, but the Russian judge gave you a nine point five for style, so okay.
Rachel Caine

Tiger Woods

Zoe Kazan

Publilius Syrus
There comes a moment… When imagination gives out and Reality leaps forth. It is frightful!

The notion of representing a sound by a graphic symbol is itself so stupefying a leap of the imagination that what is remarkable is not so much that it happened relatively late in human history, but that it happened at all.
Jack Goody
When your hands leap towards mine, love, what do they bring me in flight?
Pablo Neruda
No one ever reached the worst of a vice at one leap.
The decisions you make can be upsetting to fans. I’ve experienced that, as a listener, looking at artists I’ve admired. It’s sensitive. We really consider the idea of natural growth versus unnatural leaps.
Alex Scally
No one else in our family was a professional musician so this took an enormous leap of faith on their part.
Tony Visconti
Coming from having absolutely nothing to having a few grand in the bank, it was a big culture leap. I think that’s why I went off the rails a bit really, ’cause there was no training for it. They didn’t do fame in schools.
Craig Charles
It really is no different in the way that we make records and shoot music videos. I don’t think of the movie as being a great leap out of my current profession.
Wayne Coyne
I find China such a fascinating and interesting country. Each time I come back something has changed and it’s moved on in leaps and bounds.
George Osborne
We at Google have made tremendous advances in understanding language. Our knowledge graph has been fundamental to that. The new algorithm that we launched today called Hummingbird has been a great leap forward.
Amit Singhal
Faith is almost the bottom line of creativity; it requires a leap of faith any time we undertake a creative endeavor, whether this is going to the easel, or the page, or onto the stage – or for that matter, in a homelier way, picking out the right fabric for the kitchen curtains, which is also a creative act.
Julia Cameron
Subjectivity ceases to exist only when the mutation-like leap is made from subjectivity to objectivity, from individual existence to universal existence.
Piet Mondrian
When I see things in the world that leap out at me, I want to make use of them in fiction. Maybe every writer does that. It just depends on what you claim or appropriate as yours.
Rachel Kushner
Look before you leap for as you sow, ye are like to reap.
Samuel Butler
If we always take the path of least resistance, if we embrace inertia, if we never leap, if we never accept accountability for our choices, how can we find any triumph in our victories or any remorse in our losses?
Allison Winn Scotch
Aggressive play is a vital asset of the world’s greatest golfers. However, it’s even more important to the average player. Attack this game in a bold, confident, and determined way, and you’ll make a giant leap toward realizing your full potential as a player.
Greg Norman
The Stones also still have a huge following. Mick Jagger leaps around like a crazy dude. And Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts are playing great too.
Paul McCartney
Worried about a skin condition? Leap smartly into a bath of porridge.
Terry Wogan
A young imagination is bold, likes to make bigger leaps. It likes to, well, imagine that the dustbuster is a dinosaur; that the computer mouse is a hotrod; that the box is a cave; that the rawhide is a torch… or a baton… or something.
Mo Rocca
If we would only see that all limitations are self imposed and chosen out of fear, we would leap at once.
Medicinal discovery,
It moves in mighty leaps,
It leapt straight past the common cold
And gave it us for keeps.
Pam Ayres
All in all, we Muslims have only two holidays, and they’re always getting moved around from season to season, from month to month, because we’re dependent on the moon and not the sun, and unlike the Jews, we haven’t created a leap year, so we have no Adar Bet.
Sayed Kashua
‘Charlotte’s Web,’ which I read sitting on my mother’s lap, was the most emotional experience: that was when I made the leap from seeing how to untangle words to realizing how books both contain and convey strong feelings.
Meg Wolitzer
In e-commerce, your prices have to be better because the consumer has to take a leap of faith in your product.
Ashton Kutcher
For the real difference between happiness and joy is that one is grounded in this world, the other in eternity. Happiness cannot encompass suffering and evil. Joy can. Happiness depends on the present. Joy leaps into the future and triumphantly creates a new present out of it.
Elise M. Boulding
Deep beneath the surface of the Sun, enormous forces were gathering. At any moment, the energies of a million hydrogen bombs might burst forth in the awesome explosion…. Climbing at millions of miles per hour, an invisible fireball many times the size of Earth would leap from the Sun and head out across space.
Arthur C. Clarke
I am about to take my last voyage, a great leap in the dark.
Thomas Hobbes

John Updike
Transformation is something I cannot explain – too much analysis might destroy it.
Sophia Loren
The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead.
William Lloyd Garrison
Is it too late to institute a leap year and mandate that the holidays fall on regular, convenient dates – so that Id al-Fitr will come, say, in the spring and Id al-Adha in early summer?
Sayed Kashua
You cannot find what you do not seek. You cannot grasp when you do not reach. Your dreams won’t come up to your front door. You have got to take a leap if you want to soar.
Cory Booker
Humanity as a whole has already gone through unimaginable suffering, mostly self-inflicted, the culmination of which was the 20th century with its unspeakable horrors. This collective suffering has brought upon a readiness in many human beings for the evolutionary leap that is spiritual awakening.
Eckhart Tolle
Take a leap of faith and begin this wondrous new year by believing.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
Even Gene Kelly: I always preferred him to Fred Astaire, just because he was more athletic, like skateboarding. His leaps were big. There was something really great about his moves.
Harmony Korine
The reason you can take the leap of faith with Stephen King, when it comes to the paranormal, or the things that happen in the world that he creates, is because the characters that he writes are accessible.
Emily Rose
Elijah looks angelic but his beauty of spirit is what makes his Frodo leap out of the screen. Unalloyed goodness is one of the most difficult attributes to act.
Ian Mckellen
One of my earliest memories is seeing the bright blue, Epic 45 of Jackie Wilson singing ‘Higher and Higher,’ and I’d say, ‘That one!’ and my parents would play it every Sunday afternoon and we’d all get up and leap around the house.
Bronagh Gallagher

Louis Sachar

Billy Dodds
I liked writing, and I loved movies, obsessively loved movies, but I had never made the leap of thinking I would actually come out here and write stuff.
Robert Ben Garant
Words cannot express as music does, that unsayable grace which cannot be defined. It leaps like light from mind to mind.
Gwen Harwood
Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.

Astro Teller
Upgrading one’s imagination about what is possible is always a leap of faith.
Clay Shirky
What one thing could you do in your personal and professional life that, if you did on a regular basis, would make a tremendous positive difference in your life? Quadrant II activities have that kind of impact. Our effectiveness takes quantum leaps when we do them.
Stephen Covey
Going from someone playing 15-people venues to performing at the Grammys, it was this giant leap and sort of showed me it was possible with what I wanted to do and the kind of music I wanted to write and artist I want to be to impact a lot of people.
Mary Lambert
Life is a bubble in a lake, that glitters for an instant, bursts, and leaves not even a blur on the water; it is the leap of a minnow, which sends a tiny ripple trembling for a few inches.
Austin O’Malley
I moved to Los Angeles when I was about 20, all by myself. It was exciting. I had this moment when I felt like I needed to put on my big-boy pants and just make that leap to see what would happen.
Luke Bracey
When you have been burned by fire once, you don’t leap into the flames again.
Jodi Picoult
The caliber of play in professional football compared to college is better and everybody knows it. They don’t realize how much better. What a giant leap forward in the ability of talent level, the speed, and even the grasp of what you are trying to do. There is no other distractions before the players.
Marv Levy
Surfing is all about uncertainty. That feeling of taking a risk, that leap of faith every time I jump into the ocean, that paddle out among things unseen — all of these make surfing very special
Shaun Tomson
The art has to have a life of its own and not merely illustrate. I’ve always felt a great illustration can make a good poem even better. That’s the advantage I have in illustrating my own work – I have the freedom to leap far from the poem.
Douglas Florian
Didn’t I seize the fire of ideas and make them leap, tear, fly, sing
Tom Paulin
Love is always a leap into the unknown. You can try to control as many variables, and understand a situation as you can, but youre still jumping off a cliff and hoping that someone catches you.
Lisa Kleypas
To a certain extent I am taking a leap of faith. I’m adding up the evidence on either side, and I’m seeing the evidence of there not being a God is overwhelming compared to the evidence for there being a God.
Julia Sweeney
Many short-sighted fools think that going to the Moon was just a stunt. But the astronauts knew the meaning of what they were doing, as is shown by Neil Armstrong’s first words in stepping down onto the soil of Luna: “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
Robert A. Heinlein
Once we become a multiplanet species, our chances to live long and prosper will take a huge leap skyward.

Nora Roberts
Leap…and the net will follow
Valerie Bertinelli
For me, I’ve always believed that there was a God. I’ve always believed that God created the heavens and earth – so, for me it’s not a huge leap from there to intelligent design.
Ben Stein
Giddy grasshopper Take care…do not leap and crush These pearls of dewdrop
Kobayashi Issa
If nothing else, I want women to understand that they are powerful. If you look back at history, in almost every big moment, in every leap forward, you find ordinary women at the core. We have more ability to make changes in the world than we can imagine if we have the courage to try.
Liya Kebede
Do the knowledge, meaning: look, listen, observe, and also respect. If you do that, you’ll have a strong foundation to build anything you want to do in life upon. Know before you do. Look before you leap. And if you want to follow in my footsteps, make sure you step in the ones that went in the right direction.
I read that nine out of 10 women fantasize about having an unknown man leap through their bedroom window at night and make mad, passionate love to them. Who would think with those odds, I would now be facing 150 hours of community service.
Emo Philips
England! my country, great and free! Heart of the world, I leap to thee!
Philip James Bailey
Of nothing comes nothing: springs rise not above Their source in the far-hidden heart of the mountains: Whence then have descended the Wisdom and Love That in man leap to light in intelligent fountains?
John Townsend Trowbridge
I’m extremely fascinated by marriage. I want to study marriage. I want to learn about it. I want to know it. I want to figure out whether or not I want to do it. I’m not just going to leap into it, because that’s not good for anybody.
Adam Levine
When we are suddenly released from an acute absorbing bodily pain, our heart and senses leap out in new freedom; we think even the noise of streets harmonious, and are ready to hug the tradesman who is wrapping up our change.
George Eliot
I think that music opens portals and doorways into unknown sectors that it takes courage to leap into. I always think that there’s a potential that we all have, and we can emerge, rise up to this potential, when necessary. We have to be fearless, courageous, and draw upon wisdom that we think we don’t have.
Wayne Shorter
It is worth taking the leap for something you have always wanted to do because until you try you’ll never know. Through the experiences I have had and the risks I have taken, I have gained courage and confidence. I didn’t start with the courage and confidence. I started with the risk.
Laura Davies
Writing is finally a series of permissions you give yourself to be expressive in certain ways. To leap. To fly. To fail.
Susan Sontag
I collect… for a long time, I collected Nike Air Max 90s, this specific shoe. And it really is nerdy, because collecting sneakers is not that nerdy, but if you don’t wear them, and you keep the box fresh, if you’re that fanatical about it, then you leap several categories into super-dork, and that’s the way I was.
Charlie Hunnam
Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.
Doug Larson
Our words must be judged by our deeds; and in striving for a lofty ideal we must use practical methods; and if we cannot attain all at one leap, we must advance towards it step by step, reasonably content so long as we do actually make some progress in the right direction.
Theodore Roosevelt
The mind can proceed only so far upon what it knows and can prove. There comes a point where the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge, but can never prove how it got there. All great discoveries have involved such a leap
Albert Einstein
As an artist, there are times when you need to take a leap of faith… For me, it’s important that the gaze is correct.
Sayani Gupta
There is a difficult leap between talking about balancing the budget and actually doing it.
Kevin Brady

Benjamin Franklin
science can only take you so far and then you have to leap
Yann Martel
Creation differs from subsistence only as the first leap of a fountain differs from its continuance.
Coventry Patmore
What happens with DMT is you leap over all the barriers in the first few seconds. Unlike mushrooms where over hours and hours on a high dose you might navigate yourself to the center of the mandala, DMT is like being struck by metaphysical lightening.
Terence McKenna
Metaphor is the energy charge that leaps between images, revealing their connections.
Robin Morgan
Love doesn’t grow at a steady rate, but advances in surges, bolts, wild leaps, and this was one of those.
Ian Mcewan
Quantum Leap Thinking [is] an opportunity to get our energy out and target it in the direction of great productivity, leaving us with a feeling of accomplishment.
Leon Tec
In prose, leaps of logic can be made while the protagonist thinks about things and arrives at conclusions. Even with voiceover, there’s no real way of having an inner voice without it taking over the entire story.
Denise Mina
Accidentally consumed five biscuits when I wasn’t paying attention. Those biscuits are wily fellows – they leap in like sugary ninjas

I can’t even make a leap of faith to believe in my own existence.
Woody Allen
(Death is) A leap into the dark.
Thomas Browne
One way we can enliven the imagination is to push it toward the illogical. We’re not scientists. We don’t always have to make the logical, reasonable leap.
Stella Adler
Had history been democratic in its ways, there would have been no farming and no indsturial revolution. Both leaps into the future were occasioned by unbearably painful crises that made most people wish they could recoil into the past.
Yanis Varoufakis
Meditation means cleansing the mirror, dropping thoughts, letting thoughts disappear, attaining to moments when thinking ceases. And those are the most blissful moments in life. Once you have tasted a single moment of no-thought, you have taken a great leap into truth; then things will become more and more easy every day.
I advise you to say your dream is possible and then overcome all inconveniences, ignore all the hassles and take a running leap through the hoop, even if it is in flames.
Les Brown
I want to show you that you can leap tall buildings, walk through walls, and change reality.
Elan Lee
You cannot raise the standard against oppression, or leap into the breach to relieve injustice, and still keep an open mind to every disconcerting fact, or an open ear to the cold voice of doubt.
Learned Hand
And before you ask, no, you’re not driving, Myrnin. I remember the last time.” “That accident was not my fault.” “You were the only one on the road, and the mailbox actually didn’t leap out in front of you. No arguments. You sit in the back, too.
Rachel Caine
That headlong ivy! not a leaf will grow But thinking of a wreath, . . . I like such ivy; bold to leap a height ‘Twas strong to climb! as good to grow on graves As twist about a thyrsus; pretty too (And that’s not ill) when twisted round a comb.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
The suddenness of the leap from hardware to software cannot but produce a period of anarchy and collapse, especially in the developed countries.
Marshall McLuhan
If you demand that everything that happens be something you are adequately prepared for, I wonder if you’ve chosen never to leap in ways that we need you to leap. Once we embrace this chasm, then for the things for which we can never be prepared, we are of course, always prepared.
Seth Godin
Take a chance on faith – not religion, but faith. Not hope, but faith. I don’t believe in hope. Hope is a beggar. Hope walks through the fire. Faith leaps over it.
Jim Carrey
it is strange how the dead leap out on us at street corners, or in dreams
Virginia Woolf
A man’s love for his native land lies deeper than any logical expression, among those pulses of the heart which vibrate to the sanctities of home, and to the thoughts which leap up from his father’s graves.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth.
Cynthia Heimel
That requires quite an imaginative leap because it’s hard for me to imagine that my biography would be of much interest to anyone, and because I’m a fairly private person, the notion doesn’t appeal to me.
Debra Dean
Faith is almost the bottom line of creativity; it requires a leap of faith any time we undertake a creative endeavor, whether this is going to the easel, or the page, or onto the stage.
Julia Cameron
Suffering and joy teach us, if we allow them, how to make the leap of empathy, which transports us into the soul and heart of another person.
William Fritz
The rational intellect doesn’t have a great deal to do with love, and it doesn’t have a great deal to do with art. I am often, in my writing, great leaps ahead of where I am in my thinking, and my thinking has to work its way slowly up to what the “superconscious” has already shown me in a story or poem.
Madeleine L’Engle
We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success.
Henry David Thoreau

Elijah Kelley
Faith in Christ is not some blind leap into a dark chasm, but a faith based on established evidence.
Hank Hanegraaff
My grandfather was a small-town doctor and he used to say that I was missing a gene that told me that some giant risk I am about to take with my life is both stupid and dangerous. I’m grateful for this. Everything worthwhile that we create in life requires a leap of faith.
Paul Budnitz

Sidney Lanier
Painting comes to reality through illusion. An illusion that allows us to make a leap of faith; to believe. To believe in a blue that can be the wing of a bug or a thought. It makes our invisible visible.
Squeak Carnwath
Feet were made, not given for dancing, but to walk modestly, not to leap impudently like camels.
Saint John Chrysostom
Although knowledge of structure is helpful, real creativity comes from leaps of faith in which you jump to something illogical. But those leaps form the memorable moments in movies and plays.
Francis Ford Coppola
I gravitated to Judy Blume early on. ‘Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing’ was my favorite, with a realistic and relatable protagonist in Peter Hatcher. When I reached the fourth grade, I made the leap to science fiction and never looked back.
Jeff Kinney
An animal is not cruel; it lives wholly in the instant leap on its prey, in the present taste of marrow or blood. Cruelty begins with the memory, and the pleasures of the memory are impure; they draw their strength along levels where no sun has reached.
Storm Jameson
One of the greatest experiences I ever had was listening to a conversation with Joni Mitchell and Wayne Shorter. Just to hear them talking, my mouth was open. They understand each other perfectly, and they make these leaps and jumps because they don’t have to explain anything.
Herbie Hancock
In Scripture, faith involves placing trust in what you have reason to believe is true. Faith is not a blind, irrational leap into the dark. So faith and reason cooperate on a biblical view of faith. They are not intrinsically hostile.
J.P. Moreland
Especially in the last 10 years, the writing on animated shows has jumped by leaps and bounds.
Will Friedle
I just didn’t lock into being in the right role in the right big movie and it going huge. I did never really make the leap to hyperspace. Who’s to say that it can’t still happen. I just enjoy working, and feel fortunate to be doing the things that I am doing.
Jake Busey
Does not all the blood within me
Leap to meet thee, leap to meet thee,
As the springs to meet the sunshine.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Whom do you speak to about introducing a leap year? Is it heresy to request such a thing? Why do the Jews have one and we don’t?
Sayed Kashua
I believe the human race is ready to make a quantum leap forward spiritually and morally.
Marianne Williamson
I decided to take a leap of faith and go into business for myself. I’m scared to death!
Kam Williams
Just because you can leap off a drum kit doing a scissors kick while hitting a chord, people expect you to be an extrovert socially. But I’m not always comfortable with the idea of small talk at a party.
Alex Kapranos
I like motivational books, because I like the go-getting American spirit – your destiny is in your own hands, life is what you make it, don’t accept your limitations, jump before you’re pushed, leap before you look.
Louise Mensch
Fear cannot exist in the presence of faith. Fear only exists because you feel that you are not in control. Give up the need to be in control, take a leap in faith and fear will vanish as the mists in the morning sun.
John Harricharan
If you solve both the consumer problems and the corporate problems, you can win at this game. If you reinvent what a corporation is currently selling, it can often make the leap.
Tahl Raz
I have no more pleasure in hearing a man attempting wit and failing, than in seeing a man trying to leap over a ditch and tumbling into it
Samuel Johnson
Never neglect an opportunity to play leap-frog; it is the best of all games, and, unlike the terribly serious and conscientious pastimes of modern youth, will never become professionalized.
Hesketh Pearson
A wounded deer leaps the highest.
Emily Dickinson
If individuals do not occupy their legitimate position, then it will be occupied by a god or a king or a coalition of interest groups. If citizens do not exercise the powers confered by their legitimacy, others will do so.
(I – The Great Leap Backwards)
John Ralston Saul
I do strive to find projects that are trying to carve out some new space. I enjoy projects that leap away from the crowd a little bit.
Emily Blunt
You are most powerful when you are most silent. People never expect silence. They expect words, motion, defense, offense, back and forth. They expect to leap into the fray. They are ready, fists up, words hanging leaping from their mouths. Silence? No.
Alison McGhee
We want to allow Costa Ricans to make a qualitative leap in our development and go to an economy based on innovation and developing a broadband infrastructure in order to overcome the barrier of 15 per cent penetration.
Laura Chinchilla
But whatever the consensus on the EMH, I know of no serious academic, professional money manager, trained security analyst, or intelligent individual investor who would disagree with the thrust of EMH: The stock market itself is a demanding taskmaster. It sets a high hurdle that few investors can leap.
John C. Bogle
Things can fall apart, or threaten to, for many reasons, and then there’s got to be a leap of faith. Ultimately, when you’re at the edge, you have to go forward or backward; if you go forward, you have to jump together.
Yo-Yo Ma
The leap is made by dropping vanity over knowledge and by a willingness to become nothing in order to become everything.
Vernon Howard
I never killed anyone. I avoid going over that edge by writing about a guy who has taken a flying leap over it.
Jhonen Vasquez

Heinrich Heine
Marriage is a leap of faith. You are each other’s safety net.
Erica Bauermeister
I’m happy to feed the squirrels – tree rats with the agility of point guards – but in fair weather, they frighten my finches. They leap from snowbank to porch to feeder and stuff their cheek pouches with chickadee feed.
Donald Hall
Every leap forward that I make is by reaching back and firmly getting a footing in the past, and pushing forward as hard as I can.
Steve Earle
Life is like the monkey bars: you have to let go to move forward. Once you make the decision to leap into entrepreneurship, be sure to loosen your grasp on old concepts so you can swing your way to new ones.
Leah Busque
I will close my eyes and leap.
Mary Anne Radmacher
Love is a time-honored way to transcend the separate-self sense and leap into the sublime; Treya and I held hands, closed our eyes, and jumped.
Ken Wilber
When the time comes to leap in faith whether you have your eyes open or closed or scream all the way down or not makes no practical difference.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Dare to declare who you are. It is not far from the shores of silence to the boundaries of speech. The path is not long, but the way is deep. You must not only walk there, you must be prepared to leap.
Hildegard of Bingen
After you leap, before you land, is God.
Gabrielle Roth
The body is your instrument in dance, but your art is outside that creature, the body. I don’t leap and jump anymore. I look at young dancers, and I am envious, more aware of what glories the body contains. But sensitivity is not made dull by age.
Martha Graham
For me, my heart, that erst did go
Most like a tired child at a show,
That sees through tears the mummers leap,
Would now its wearied vision close,
Would childlike on His love repose,
Who giveth His Beloved, sleep.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
To me, Scorpio was a big bet and a quantum leap in the kind of sophistication of our products. People forget that, apart from the Bolero and the Armada, until the nineties we never made hard-top vehicles.
Anand Mahindra
True faith is not a leap into the dark; it’s a leap into the light
Eric Metaxas
Anyone who comes to grips with the issues raised in The Marrow of Modern Divinity will almost certainly grow by leaps and bounds in understanding three things: the grace of God, the Christian life, and the very nature of the gospel itself.
Sinclair B. Ferguson
Leap of faith – yes, but only after reflection
Soren Kierkegaard
Creativity makes a leap, then looks to see where it is.
Mason Cooley
Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.
Agnes de Mille
I think for a lot of people, the financial barrier is the biggest leap (that) you have to take. A lot of people don’t want to stick their necks out and take that risk which is totally understandable. Until you are ready to totally bet on yourself and put all of your chips on the table, it doesn’t happen.
Chris Gethard
So you’re suggesting we take the train up to York, meet a ninety-year-old man, leap on him, and yank out his hair? I’m sure the Clave will be ecstatic.” “They’ll just say you’re mad,” said Jessamine. “They already think it, so what’s the difference, really?
Cassandra Clare
Revolutions and revolutionary wars are inevitable in class society, and without them it is impossible to accomplish any leap in social development and to overthrow the reactionary ruling classes and therefore impossible for the people to win political power.
Mao Zedong
If you say a word, it leaps out and becomes the truth. I love you. I believe it. I believe I am loveable. How can something as fragile as a word build a whole world?
Franny Billingsley
If poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world, science fiction writers are its court jesters. We are Wise Fools who can leap, caper, utter prophecies, and scratch ourselves in public. We can play with Big Ideas because the garish motley of our pulp origins make us seem harmless.
Bruce Sterling
Hi-def is merely the latest in a string of evolutional leaps that have transformed the way we sit slumped in front of a box wishing we were dead.
Charlie Brooker
Old pond, leap-splash – a frog.
Matsuo Basho
The ability to make big leaps of thought is a common denominator among the originators of breakthrough ideas.
Nicholas Negroponte
Literature is an ethical leap. It is a moral decision. A perilous exercise in constant failure. Literature should have grievances, because there are so many grievances in the world.
Miguel Syjuco
Quotations in my work are like wayside robbers who leap out armed and relieve the stroller of his conviction.
Walter Benjamin
You would think that everyone would leap at the chance to get rid of sin. Not so. They want relief not a cure.
Henry R Brandt
To believe in Jesus, is to believe that the historic person who lived on this earth more than 2000 years ago was the image of the invisible God. That’s a huge leap of faith, but it is my leap of faith, it’s the act of faith of the Christian community.
Richard Rohr
The product that wins is the one that bridges customers to the future, not the one that requires a giant leap.
Aaron Levie
Yes, I’m often reminded of her, and in one of my array of pockets, I have kept her story to retell. It is one of the small legion I carry, each one extraordinary in its own right. Each one an attempt – an immense leap of an attempt – to prove to me that you, and your human existence, are worth it.
Markus Zusak
Acting is an imaginative leap, really, isn’t it? And imaginations prosper in different circumstances.
John Hurt
Faith is a leap into the light, not a step into the darkness.
Reinhard Bonnke
The whole Brexit saga is, in my view, one big, terrifying leap in the dark.
Gina Miller
The heart sometimes leaps forward when the head tells us to be still. When this happens, patience is clearly called for as we seek to find a proper balance between impulse and discretion.
Alexander Clark
Being a writer means taking the leap from listening to saying ‘Listen to me’.
Jhumpa Lahiri
Every day the eye is subject to a thousand tiny shocks as a thousand industries compete for the eye-kick, the visual hook that will lock the consumer into product for that crucial second where the tiny – or not so tiny – leap of the imagination is made.
Graham Joyce
When James Bond presses the watch and the car explodes, the writer doesn’t go into the science of it. One should leave it to the leap of faith. I have tried to explain as much as possible, and what I can’t, I have left it to people’s imagination.
Ravi Subramanian
My leap is something that I’ve always had. I’ve always been able to jump high.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin
I will take the sun in my mouth and leap into the ripe air Alive with closed eyes to dash against darkness
e. e. cummings
If you are ever going to achieve as much as you can in a sport, you are going to have to be willing to make a leap of faith to learn how much your body can handle.
Meredith Rainey-Valmon
For I now realize that what overcame me that evening was a sudden awareness of the power of intuition, the supra-logic that cuts out all routine processes of thought and leaps straight from problem to answer.
Robert Graves
I love you, with a love so great that it simply couldn’t keep growing inside my heart, but had to leap out and reveal itself in all its magnitude.
Anne Frank
I actually think that bass is probably the instrument that has evolved in a quantum leap compared to other instruments. It’s the instrument that’s evolved the most, especially with how it’s perceived. And even how it’s played, and how it’s viewed from a point of view of commerce, like with the music industry.
Stanley Clarke
Weariness that wants to reach the ultimate with one leap, with one fatal leap, a poor ignorant weariness that does not want to want any more: this created all gods and afterworlds.
Friedrich Nietzsche
When in doubt, make a fool of yourself.
Cynthia Heimel
Who can leap the world’s ties and sit with me among white clouds?
Jack Kerouac
In 1981, I borrowed 2,000 pounds – a lot of money back then – paid 50 quid for a seat, packed my own sandwich, and hopped on a plane to America. It was a mighty leap, but one that paid off. A week later, I got a job called ‘Remington Steele.’
Pierce Brosnan
At the beach, life is different. A day moves not from hour to hour but leaps from mood to moment. We go with the currents, plan around the tides, follow the sun. We measure happiness by nothing we can hold, nothing we can catch. Everywhere, life is jumping and elusive and momentously momentary.
Sandy Gingras
When I started this project, I was a young architect. I was very apprehensive about any changes to the design. Whether I wanted to or not, I learned that you can accept some changes to its form without compromising its intent. But it’s a leap of faith that I didn’t want to make initially – to put it mildly.
Michael Arad
I–love’s skein upon the ground,
My body in the tomb–
Shall leap into the light lost
In my mother’s womb.
William Butler Yeats
I think what we all have to do is make this big leap towards renewables. And it has to be a solution where you’re actually building the answer; and it has to be built faster than the natural gas industry can build their answer.
Josh Fox
There’s still the part of me that wants to leap at every opportunity, but now there’s the other side that says, ‘Let’s just wait a minute and see what happens.’ That’s intuition, and it comes with age and experience.
Kim Cattrall
Beauty stands and waits
with gravity
to start her death-defying leap
Lawrence Ferlinghetti
I see a lot of scripts, and very few of them leap off the page at you.
Sam Shepard
Details are our business as writers. Your heart leaps when you see a detail that can go somewhere
Joan Didion
It was such a leap in my career when ‘Truman Show’ came along. It’s always been a long process for me insofar as recognition goes, but that’s OK because you appreciate it when it comes.
Jim Carrey
We must recoile a little, to the end we may leap the better.
George Herbert
Having children-the responsibility of rearing good, kind, ethical, responsible human beings-is the biggest job anyone can embark on. You have to take a leap of faith and ask lots of people for their help and guidance.
Maria Shriver
Both my parents were working in politics when I was growing up, so going on stage was not that great a leap.
Casey Wilson
No one ever reached the worst of a vice at one leap
If you don’t leap, you’ll never know what it’s like to fly.
Guy Finley
One of my favorite moments is onstage, when you see a dancer leap, and you think they’re flying, and then they fall. It’s that moment of suspension that you look for, and sometimes you get it and sometimes you don’t.
Cate Blanchett
Twice in his life Eugene Victor Debs took the long leap to the Ultima Thule of prison, passing beyond the realm of the acceptable into the nonacceptable, from respectability into the criminal community of the monster who was an enemy to the people.
Marguerite Young
Cheese is milk’s leap toward immortality.
Clifton Fadiman
My field-mouse had made a set of brand-new tracks; here and there they etched themselves, following the brown flowers. It seemed as if uncommon spirits had seized their little maker, for sometimes he had leaped a yard, the festive mite! There was no other track pursuing; the leaps must have been mere joy.
Anne Bosworth Greene
When men have come to the edge of a precipice, it is the lover of life who has the spirit to leap backwards, and only the pessimist who continues to believe in progress.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
In the deepest realm of being, is the imagination of ourselves. What is your next evolutionary leap? What are you imagining, (for yourself) right now?
Deepak Chopra
It wasn’t a leap for me to go from not wanting to be in my body as a teenager, not wanting to be in my house, to thinking, ‘What would happen if I had disappeared?’ And then going from writing scenes of angry kids to thinking a little more about the parents and what their lives would be like.
Charles Bock
Time jumps. It leaps. It pours away like water through fingers.
Lauren Oliver
I still find it interesting that there could be a point between a young guy and a girl when they decide to hold hands as they walk down the block. At some point, they decide to make the leap from pushing and insulting each other to doing something tender and possessive and showing the world that.
Amy Heckerling
Before you take the leap, before you jump, really make sure it’s going to be something you want to get out of bed [to do] everyday, because it is so hard. So you want to make sure that you’re really committed.
Alexa Von Tobel
They call me Superman, leap tall hoes in a single bound.
Sometimes all you need is a big leap of faith.
Sean Bean
I come from a long line of below-stairs maids and gardeners. Good ol’ peasant stock. My mother and her sister made a quantum leap out of that life. Then I made another quantum leap.
Julie Andrews
A day without a dark cloud. Almost a happy day. There were three thousand six hundred and fifty-three days like that in his stretch. From the first clang of the rail to the last clang of the rail. Three thousand six hundred and fifty-three days. The three extra days were for leap years.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
We are very near to greatness: one step and we are safe; can we not take the leap?
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Patience is the most necessary quality for business, many a man would rather you heard his story than grant his request.
It is by attempting to reach the top in a single leap that so much misery is produced in the world.
William Cobbett
I joined a big club like Monaco and it was extraordinary for my growth as a player. That gave me the chance to break into the national squad, win the 1998 World Cup, the EURO in 2000, and make the leap to Italian football.
David Trezeguet
Let me leap naked through life’s testing flame, And bear to lose, and yet endure to win.
Kenneth Rand
In a hundred years, Christianity will have mutated into something utterly unpredictable which, nevertheless, we’d recognize immediately. And same-sex marriage will be one of the fine old God-given traditions that conservatives leap to defend.
Francis Spufford
When I look into your eyes, one word leaps to my mind every time: Forever.
Tina St. John
Knowledge advances by steps, and not by leaps.
Thomas B. Macaulay
Look before you leap.
John Heywood
There are some things one can only achieve by a deliberate leap in the opposite direction.
Franz Kafka
How! leap into the pit our life to save?
To save our life leap all into the grave.
William Cowper
Let’s learn from history and take a look at other infamous socialist central-planning experiments like China’s Great Leap Forward or the Soviet Union’s Five-Year Plan. Like those two disasters, the Green New Deal would cripple our country and sacrifice Americans on the altar of environmental extremism.
Lauren Boebert
For some, it was easier to take the leap from the leafless tree and dance on nothing until dancing was done.
Neil Gaiman
Leap out of the frying pan into the fire.
Miguel de Cervantes
We can improve our relationships with others by leaps and bounds if we become encouragers instead of critics.
Joyce Meyer
It’s best to leap into something you know you love. You might change your mind later, but that is the privilege of youth.
Charles Kuralt
Look twice before you leap.
Charlotte Bronte
But back to your question, it was a wonderful experience with the Art Ensemble, and I keep in contact and sort of follow what’s going on, but it was also very important to make this step, you may say this leap of faith.
Joseph Jarman
One cannot leap a chasm in two jumps.
Winston Churchill
Setting can be something that is a major player in a scene, something that makes the mood leap from the page. But if an author doesn’t handle it right, it falls flat or seems overdone. It is a challenge getting it “just right”.
Kim Smith
Lakhs of families in the country are deprived of energy connectivity. Fruits of development will not reach the common man until energy connectivity reaches every last household of the country. In the age of globalization, we have no option but to make a quantum leap in energy production and connectivity.
Narendra Modi
The challenging part is in the beginning; its a leap of faith. But I think the most important thing is to just do it. Start.
Tom Szaky
I didn’t start making a real living until eight or nine years in. Even after ‘Goodfellas’ came out, I was still working as a waiter, and people would recognize me – that was an odd experience. But when ‘The Sopranos’ hit, that was like an exponential leap.
Michael Imperioli
After Bruno Walter, my career went in leaps and bounds. I have had 35 years of a career that is just incredible, and a wonderful time all over the world.
Maureen Forrester
When there is no possibility of retreat, we will find the innovation that only the liminal situation can bring. In short, we find the faith of leap.
Alan Hirsch
All that could run or leap or swim
Whether in wood, water or cloud,
Acclaiming, proclaiming, declaiming Him.
William Butler Yeats
He lunged again. This time I stood my ground and he checked his leap at the last second….and toppled sideways. I didn’t hide my laugh that time. His face twisted fast, grabbed my pajama leg and wrenched, and down I went. “Bully
Kelley Armstrong
When anyone escapes, my heart / leaps up. Even when it’s I who am escaped from, / I am half on the side of the leaver.
Sharon Olds
Educational television should be absolutely forbidden. It can only lead to unreasonable disappointment when your child discovers that the letters of the alphabet do not leap up out of books and dance around with royal-blue chickens.
Fran Lebowitz
Kind of making that leap from a team that wins occasionally to a team that wins the majority of the time, a lot of times just comes down with figuring out how tough it is to win, and then executing down the stretch to do it.
J. J. Redick
There are many things God wants to do on earth and in people’s lives, but if someone doesn’t leap in and answer the call to pray, it won’t happen.
Stormie Omartian
Nobody understands how the world will change. The only way you can plan for the future is to have scenarios. You have to have the courage to take a leap of faith on one of them.
Anand Mahindra
It’s my turn, to take a leap into the darkness!
Thomas Hobbes
Well, I’ve always thought that my career was in England, really. I used to do more in the theatre, and I felt that I should be there. It’s not far is it? It’s amazing the way that special FX have taken a quantum leap in what they’re capable of doing.
Albert Finney
I like motivational books, because I like the go-getting American spirit – your destiny is in your own hands, life is what you make it, don’t accept your limitations, jump before you’re pushed, leap before you look.
Louise Mensch
Ultimately it’s a leap of faith and a leap of imagination to put yourself back in time into those conditions and situations and see how you would react.
Derek Jacobi
The throat: how strange, that there is not more erotic emphasis upon it. For here, through this compound pulsing pillar, our life makes its leap into spirit, and in the other direction gulps down what it needs of the material world.
John Updike
Take a leap of faith. You will either land somewhere new or learn to fly.
Kandyse McClure
I hold a vision of this blue green planet, safe and in balance. At the end of the Fossil Fuel Era, we are emerging to a new reality. We are ready to make the next leap – as momentous as abolishing slavery or giving women the vote.
Elizabeth May
Forget the years, forget distinctions. Leap into the boundless and make it your home!
I don’t think it’s a great leap to go from civil unions to gay marriage – I may be in the minority in believing that.
Harold Ford, Jr.
People used to say, ‘Andy Serkis lent his movements to Gollum,’ and now they say, ‘Andy Serkis played Caesar.’ That’s a significant leap.
Andy Serkis
I want as many people to see the show [Hamilton] in its musical theater form as possible before it’s translated, and whether it’s a good act of translation or a bad act of translation, it’s a leap, and very few stage shows manage the leap successfully.
Lin-Manuel Miranda
If anything bad happens, the media will leap on it. We’re under a huge obligation to be successful.
Toby Young
There’s a moment when you come to a certain point, and if you make the leap you get to the big leagues. But if you back away, you get stuck.
Natalia Lafourcade
I have never been able to wear a hat. My hair is peculiar in that it grows so fast that any hat I put on instantly leaps from my head.
Nancy Spain
I was heart broken, scared, I had a lot of anxiety, I was worried, I felt weak, and I had no idea how I was ever going to come up with the strength. But I just closed my eyes, and took a blind leap. I knew I had to get out of there.
Bob Casey, Jr.
Women have made enormous progress on the lower and middle rungs of the career ladder, but we are failing to make the leap into senior positions. Everyone jumps to the conclusion that it’s motherhood that holds women back, but often the big roadblock is the lack of executive presence.
Sylvia Ann Hewlett
Once we link up and network, there will be new institutions, new beginnings, and a change in the economy because capitalism is destroying many people’s lives. It’s just one leap to think in a different way.
Mairead Corrigan
The wind is rising on the sea,The windy white foam-dancers leap;And the sea moans uneasily,And turns to sleep, and cannot sleep.
Arthur Symons
Obviously, CGI in the last ten years has gone through such leaps and bounds that today, people are looking for these kinds of movies to wow audiences with technology.
Avi Arad
To reason, to argue. It is to walk with crutches in search of the truth. We come to it with a leap.
Joseph Joubert
The people who really matter in social affairs are neither those who wish to stop short like a mule, or leap from crag to crag like a mountain goat.
Walter Lippmann
The highest treason a crab can commit is to make a leap for the rim of the bucket.
Steven Pressfield
I’m sad to report that in the past few years, ever since uncertainty became our insistent 21st century companion, leadership has taken a great leap backwards to the familiar territory of command and control.
Margaret J. Wheatley
The indwelling of Christ is a thought particularly fit for the children, because their large faith does not stumble at the mystery, their imagination leaps readily to the marvel, that the King Himself should inhabit a little child’s heart.
Charlotte Mason
I once pitched this show that was just like ‘Quantum Leap,’ in terms of the set-up, and I got a pass because they said ‘Quantum Leap’ didn’t work, even though it was on for six or seven seasons. You can’t say ‘Quantum Leap’ didn’t work!
Adam Green
The rockets light! The shuttle leaps off the launch pad in a cloud of steam and a trail of fire.
Sally Ride
You have to find what makes you stable in the storm. Then, no matter what’s happening round you, no matter what the hype or the publicity, you can still manage to make leaps in your work as an artist.
Jimmy Smits
Faith is not a leap in the dark; it’s the exact opposite. It’s a commitment based on evidence… It is irrational to reduce all faith to blind faith and then subject it to ridicule. That provides a very anti-intellectual and convenient way of avoiding intelligent discussion.
John Lennox
As one, they leap, laughing, and that is where we leave them – mouths open, arms spread wide, fingers splayed to take in the whole world, bodies flying high in defiance of gravity, as if they will never fall.
Libba Bray
When John Lennon left the Beatles and started making music with Yoko Ono, many people scoffed at the idea. How could this talented man with so many hit songs give it all up? Well, we all know it was love, but beyond that, it was a leap of faith to try something new.
Ashley Bryan
A silence reigns upon the air, Upon the pansies by the shore, Upon the violets, pale and fair, Upon the willow, bending o’er; The reeds and lilies silent grow, The dark green waters silent sleep, Save when the summer breezes blow, Or silvery minnows leap.
George Arnold
The mind leaps, and leaps perhaps with a sort of elation, through the immensities of space, but the spirit, frightened and cold, longs to have once more above its head the inverted bowl beyond which may lie whatever paradise its desires may create.
Joseph Wood Krutch
I do believe that any sort of electromagnetic energy that can be measured beyond the moment of death is, by the definition of energy, eternal. But I cop to the fact that calling it a ‘soul’ and presuming it sustains our consciousness in any form is, to put it kindly, a leap.
Mark Waid
Cheese is milk’s leap towards immortality.
Clifton Fadiman
Friendship requires a leap, not of faith but of regard.
Mark Kingwell
He came by a leap to the goal of purpose, not by the toilsome steps of reason. On the instant his headlong spirit declared his purpose: this was the one being for him in all the world: at this altar he would light a lamp of devotion, and keep it burning forever.
Gilbert Parker
Hit a tripwire of smell and memories explode all at once. A complex vision leaps out of the undergrowth.
Diane Ackerman
First of all, God inspires me, where he’s brought me, it blows my mind. To know that He brought me this far, it could not have been an accident, to go forward, I’m excited to leap into the void, I’m excited about tomorrow, the unknown, excited to see what else He has for me.
Columbus Short
The course was more plodding than heroic: I did not strive valiantly against doubters but took incremental steps studded with a few intuitive leaps.
Steve Martin
You leap over the wall of one ghetto and find yourself in another ghetto.
Klaus Kinski
As an actor, I think sort of relish the chance to take a leap and sort of put yourself out there. You know, it’s, like on any film, you just have to be willing to embarrass yourself, because otherwise you are not going to really reveal anything that you have. So I think it’s exciting.
Daniel Radcliffe
Look ere thou leap, see ere thou go.
Thomas Tusser
It just seemed to me so utterly wrong to credit someone’s work just for the fact that this someone migrated from one place to another. We all move. We are all leavers and new beginners at some point, and yes, it is a huge leap from war to peace, from one language to another, from Boston, MA to Joplin, MO.
Sasa Stanisic
The biggest leap between the NFL and college football is the speed. That’s something you hear often. But I think there’s more to it than just the speed of the players – there’s also the speed with which you have to process information around you.
Travis Kelce
The only thing a person can ever really do is keep moving forward. Take that big leap forward without hesitation, without once looking back. Simply forget the past and forge toward the future.
Alyson Noel
Men know no medium: They will either, spaniel-like, fawn at your feet, or be ready to leap into your lap.
Samuel Richardson
All a person can do in this life is gather about him his integrity, his imagination, and his individuality – and with these ever with him, out front and in sharp focus, leap into the dance of experience.
Tom Robbins
The ancient Irish bards knew the Salmon of Knowledge as the giver of all life’s wisdom. In the salmon’s leap of understanding like a leap of faith, we can see ourselves “in our element,” immersed in the river of life. The cycle of the salmon’s journey reminds us that all rivers flow to the same sea.
Lynn Culbreath Noel
I was glad to give the fans the Superfly leap one more time.
Jimmy Snuka
As I began to take risks, leaving my very comfortable and secure job and taking this first leap into fashion, every subsequent risk became easier to take because I began to see the kind of opportunity and excitement that risk-taking offered.
Imran Amed
Ignorantly is how we all fall in love; for it is a kind of fall. Closing our eyes, we leap from that cliff in hope of a soft landing. Nor is it always soft; but still, without that leap nobody comes to life.
Salman Rushdie
The secret of the magic of life consists in using action in order to attain non-action. One must not wish to leap over everything and penetrate directly.
Lu Yen-hsun
Indeterminism does not confer freedom on us: I would feel that my freedom was impaired if I thought that a quantum mechanical trigger in my brain might cause me to leap into the garden and eat a slug
J. J. C. Smart
My cousin Georgia says that boys are like gazelles. She says the get alarmed when they get close to girls. And they have to leap off into the woods like gazelles in trousers. Or have I just made that up?
Louise Rennison
Even getting the Lambeau Leap right was a learning experience. The wall is a lot higher than people think. You have to jump as high as you can.
Davante Adams
You know that gap between where you are and where you’d like to be? Within that gap, there is an ache and an aspirational leap, which is very good for writing.
Amanda Harlech
The drunken politician leaps upon the street where mothers weep, and the saviors who are fast asleep, they wait for you.
Bob Dylan
The idea of a computer winning the Nobel Prize for physics is not too unlikely, citing a computer as joint recipient. It’s obviously not a huge leap to think of something similar happening in fiction.
Alastair Reynolds
Let every man look before he leaps.
Miguel de Cervantes
He that climbs the tall tree has won right to the fruit, He that leaps the wide gulf should prevail in his suit.
Walter Scott
I try to imitate on the piano the leaps in space a dancer makes.
Cecil Taylor
What you will be looking for is a day that closes above the prior day’s high and most likely ‘breaks’ out to the upside to close above a trading range. This is the twitching worm that causes the public to leap before they look.
Larry R. Williams
Inference is always an invasion of the unknown, a leap from the known.
John Dewey
Feeling well that breathed words Would all be lost, unheard, and vain as swords Against the enchased crocodile, or leaps Of grasshoppers against the sun.
John Keats
When you sit at your desk, if you’re lucky, there’s a moment when you feel empowered to be someone or something else, to leap into another skin.
John Updike
I am looking for projects that challenge me, make me uncomfortable, and also projects that are in the hands of the right team. Then it’s up to me to take a leap of faith.
Taapsee Pannu
Man need not be degraded to a machine by being denied to be a ghost in a machine. He might, after all, be a sort of animal, namely, a higher mammal. There has yet to be ventured the hazardous leap to the hypothesis that perhaps he is a man.
Gilbert Ryle
The kind of intelligence a genius has is a different sort of intelligence. The thinking of a genius does not proceed logically. It leaps with great ellipses. It pulls knowledge from God knows where.
Dorothy Thompson
Having women who are already successful take the leap of faith to help younger women is critical.
Caroline Ghosn
The jump is so frightening between where I am and where I want to be.
Because of all I may become, I will close my eyes and leap.
Mary Anne Radmacher
Orwell’s ‘1984’ convinced me, rightly or wrongly, that Marxism was only a quantum leap away from tyranny. By contrast, Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’ suggested that the totalitarian systems of the future might be subservient and ingratiating.
J. G. Ballard
While the ACA’s insurance expansions and reforms represent a great leap forward for the U.S., it is also true that when fully implemented by 2018, the U.S. will still have the most inefficient, wasteful, and unfair health insurance system of any advanced nation, even with the ACA reforms.
John E. McDonough
Not a single bird makes its first leap from a tree without faith, and not a single animal in the jungle begins its day without faith. Faith is the flame that eliminates fear, and faith is the emperor of dreams.
Suzy Kassem
I will leap into my grave laughing because the feeling that I have five million human beings on my conscience is for me a source of extraordinary satisfaction.
Adolf Eichmann
Gonzo leaps like a giraffe and grabs it.
Jerry Coleman
A great leap in the dark
Thomas Hobbes
I don’t need anyone to look after me financially and, while it’s hard to trust that a man loves you for the right reasons, you have to take a leap of faith.
Tamara Ecclestone
If we take a small step in extolling peacemakers as much as honoring war heroes, we will be making a giant leap towards peace.
Newton Lee
I’m a solid Labour party supporter. I aspired to be a Labour MP, but it’s difficult to make the leap from the Foreign Office.
Jonathan Powell
Then rose from sea to sky the wild farewell Then shriek’d the timid, and stood still the brave, Then some leap’d overboard with fearful yell, As eager to anticipate their grave.
Lord Byron
The very best garden is a new one, on virgin ground. Plants leap out of that spot.
Janet Macunovich
Entrepreneurs’ willingness to innovate or just to invest – and thus create new jobs – is driven by their ‘animal spirits,’ as they decide whether to leap into the void.
Edmund Phelps
There is something in the American project, something in simple American oratory, something in the hope and idealism of this frustrating and contradictory nation that still makes my spirits soar and my heart leap with optimism and belief. If only they understood how to make a cup of tea.
Stephen Fry
there’s no forsaking what you love no existential leap as witnessed here in time and blood a thousand kisses deep
Leonard Cohen
Humanity faces a quantum leap forward. It faces the deepest social upheaval and creative restructuring of all time. Without clearly recognizing it, we are engaged in building a remarkable new civilization from the ground up. This is the meaning of the Third Wave.
Alvin Toffler
DГ©jГ  vu is more than just that fleeting moment of surprise, instantly forgotten because we never bother with things that make no sense. It show that time doesn’t pass. It’s a leap into something we have already experienced and that is being repeated.
Paulo Coelho
[My work] just develops and develops, and I’m very nicely served by the universe: just as I’m ready to take the conversation further with myself, some other individual pops up, like David McKenzie did, with this idea of making this film [Teknolust], and provides exactly the leap to the next adventure.
Tilda Swinton
A scientist works largely by intuition. Given enough experience, a scientist examining a problem can leap to an intuition as to what the solution ‘should look like.’ … Science is ultimately based on insight, not logic.
Guy Consolmagno
Getting to the pint where the other is not the enemy is a big leap.
Stanley Crouch
Any explanation or logic that explains everything so easily has a hidden trap in it. I’m speaking from experience. Somebody once said if it’s something a single book can explain, it’s not worth having explained. What I mean is don’t leap to any conclusions.
Haruki Murakami
[H]ope takes you by the throat like a stranger, it makes your heart leap.
Hilary Mantel
