You'll always miss 100% of the shots you don't take. ~Wayne Gretzky

Take risks: if you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise. ~Author Unknown

Of all the people I have ever known, those who have pursued their dreams and failed have lived a much more fulfilling life than those who have put their dreams on a shelf for fear of failure. ~Author Unknown

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark; professionals built the Titanic. ~Author Unknown

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage. Anais Nin

There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction. John F. Kennedy

You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try. Beverly Sills

“The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live.” Leo F. Buscaglia

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” Michelangelo

“To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.”

“If you wait to do everything until you're sure it's right, you'll probably never do much of anything.” Win Borden

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.” C.S. Lewis

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” Anais Nin

Man is only miserable so far as he thinks himself so.
Jacopo Sannazaro

Never think that you're not good enough yourself. A man should never think that. People will take you very much at your own reckoning.
Anthony Trollope

If you think taking care of yourself is selfish, change your mind. If you don't, you're simply ducking your responsibilities.
Ann Richards

Try to put your happiness before anyone else's, because you may never have done so in your entire life, if you really think about it, if you are really honest with yourself.
Margaret Cho

The worst thing you can possibly do is worrying and thinking about what you could have done.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

A man's worst enemies can't wish on him what he can think up himself.
Yiddish Proverb

Holding anger is a poison. It eats you from the inside. We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves.
Mitch Albom

Happiness is something that you are and it comes from the way you think.
Wayne Dyer

I am so beautiful, sometimes people weep when they see me. And it has nothing to do with what I look like really, it is just that I gave myself the power to say that I am beautiful, and if I could do that, maybe there is hope for them too. And the great divide between the beautiful and the ugly will cease to be. Because we are all what we choose.
Margaret Cho
