Thoughts for Thursday: Taking Chances

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is Taking Chances!

"Do one thing every day that scares you."--Eleanor Roosevelt

"In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure."--Bill Cosby

"Invest in the human soul. Who knows, it might be a diamond in the rough."--Mary McLeod Bethune

"Progress always involves risks. You can't steal second base and keep your foot on first."--Frederick B. Wilcox

"If you don't take risks, you'll have a wasted soul."--Drew Barrymore

"I believe in getting into hot water; it keeps you clean."--G.K. Chesterton

Check out my other blog, Musings on Fantasia for more quotes!
