Every Monday for the last three years we have posted a positive quote for the week to our company LinkedIn. We will continue to do so, now on our Facebook and Instagram pages also (see below for info). Now without further ado, here are our top ten quotes (with two extra thrown in for good measure), that we believe collectively emphasize the intertwined nature of risk and courage in achieving success and personal growth.

"We cannot discover new oceans unless we have the courage to lose sight of the shore."









  1. “Man cannot discover new oceans until he has the courage to lose sight of the shore” – Andre Gide
  2. “Leap and the net will appear.” – John Burroughs
  3. “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” – Anais Nin
  4. “You can’t outwit fate by standing on the sidelines placing little side bets about the outcome of life… if you don’t play you can’t win.” – Judith McNaught
  5. “Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” – T.S. Eliot
  6. “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’” – Mary Anne Radmacher
  7. “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” – Winston Churchill
  8. “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.” – Ambrose Redmoon
