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!

"Pearls don't lie on the seashore. If you want one, you must dive for it."--Chinese Proverb

What's the bravest think you ever did?" He spat in the road a bloody phlegm. "Getting up this morning," he said. --Cormac McCarthy, The Road

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