Robert Frost
“Freedom lies in being bold.”

Mandy Hale
“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”
Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

Dumas Malone

But good men starve for want of impudence.”

Criss Jami
“If you build the guts to do something, anything, then you better save enough to face the consequences.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets:
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!”
William Hutchison Murray

Horace
“Begin, be bold, and venture to be wise.”
Horace

Criss Jami
“If ever you feel like an animal among men, be a lion.”
Criss Jami, Diotima, Battery, Electric Personality

Tayeb Salih
“I want to take my rightful share of life by force, I want to give lavishly, I want love to flow from my heart, to ripen and bear fruit. There are many horizons that must be visited, fruit that must be plucked, books read, and white pages in the scrolls of life to be inscribed with vivid sentences in a bold hand.”
Tayeb Salih, Season of Migration to the North

Christopher Hitchens
“Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the ‘transcendent’ and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Don’t be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will provide plenty of time for silence.”
Christopher Hitchens

Steven Moffat
“You have to take your own bold approach, and if you do you will be rewarded with success.
Or calamitous failure. That can happen too.”
Steven Moffat

Subramaniya Bharathiyar
“அச்சமில்லை அச்சமில்லை அச்சமென்ப தில்லையே
இச்சகத்து ளொரெலாம் எதிர்த்து நின்ற போதிலும்,
அச்சமில்லை அச்சமில்லை அச்சமென்பதில்லையே
துச்சமாக எண்ணி நம்மைத் தூறு செய்த போதினும்,
அச்சமில்லை அச்சமில்லை அச்சமென்பதில்லையே
பிச்சை வாங்கி உண்ணும் வாழ்க்கை பெற்று விட்ட போதிலும்,
அச்சமில்லை அச்சமில்லை அச்சமென்ப தில்லையே
இச்சை கொண்ட பொருளெலாம் இழந்த விட்ட போதிலும்,

அச்சமில்லை அச்சமில்லை அச்சமென்பதில்லையே.
கச்சணிந்த கொங்கை மாதர் கண்கள் வீசு போதினும்,
அச்சமில்லை அச்சமில்லை அச்சமென்பதில்லையே.
நச்சை வாயி லேகொணர்ந்து நண்ப ரூட்டு போதினும்,
அச்சமில்லை அச்சமில்லை அச்சமென்பதில்லையே.
பச்சையூ னியைந்த வேற் படைகள் வந்த போதிலும்,
அச்சமில்லை அச்சமில்லை அச்சமென்பதில்லையே.
உச்சிமீது வானிடிந்து வீழுகின்ற போதினும்,
அச்சமில்லை அச்சமில்லை அச்சமென்பதில்லையே.”
Subramaniya Bharathiyar, mahakavi barathiyar kavithaikal

John Bunyan
“What God says is best, indeed is best, though all men in the world are against it. Seeing, then, that God prefers his religion; seeing God prefers a tender conscience; seeing they that make themselves fools for the kingdom of heaven are wisest; and that the poor man that loveth Christ is richer than the greatest man in the world that hates him: Shame, depart, thou art an enemy to my salvation.”
John Bunyan

Oscar A. Romero
“Let us be today’s Christians. Let us not take fright at the boldness of today’s church. With Christ’s light let us illuminate even the most hideous caverns of the human person: torture, jail, plunder, want, chronic illness. The oppressed must be saved, not with a revolutionary salvation, in mere human fashion, but with the holy revolution of the Son of Man, who dies on the cross to cleanse God’s image, which is soiled in today’s humanity, a humanity so enslaved, so selfish, so sinful.”
Oscar A. Romero, The Violence of Love

Andrew Murray
“Men sometimes speak as if humility and meekness would rob us of what is noble and bold and manlike. O that all would believe that this is the nobility of the kingdom of heaven, that this is the royal spirit that the King of heaven displayed, that this is Godlike, to humble oneself, to become the servant of all!”
Andrew Murray, Humility

Theodore Roosevelt
“It was a pleasure to deal with a man of high ideals, who scorned everything mean and base, and who possessed those robust and hardy qualities of body and mind, for the lack of which no merely negative virtue can ever atone.”
Theodore Roosevelt, The Rough Riders

“The smaller the creature, the bolder its spirit.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
