impulse to soar

"When you come to the edge of all the light you know, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: there will be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly" ~ Barbara J. Winter

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, and being placed delicately into a well-preserved wooden box at the end of your days; but rather, to slide in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, shouting loudly, "Wow what a ride! Thank you, Lord!" ~ Author Unknown

“Every man dies, Not every man truly lives." ~ William Wallace Braveheart

"It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have never been before...to test your limits...to break through barriers. And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom" ~ Anais Nin

"The brave are simply those with the clearest vision of what is before them: glory and danger alike...and notwithstanding, go out and meet it" ~ Hugh Jackman in Kate and Leopold

"Hope is the trust that God will fulfill God's promises to us in a way that leads us to true freedom. The optimist speaks about concrete changes in the future. The person of hope lives in the moment with the knowledge and trust that all of life is in good hands." ~ Henri Nouwen

"One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar" ~ Helen Keller
