Dare To Be
Poems and quotes that will challenge you to dare to be all that you can be.
The Poets encourages us to dare, to be more, to risk more, to live life to the
fullest by doing your best.
Be encouraged by these poems and quotes, let them give you thoughts to think about and
evaluate your life - do you play it safe and stay in a comfort zone or do you step up to the challenge
and try something that perhaps stretches or pushes you? Do you show boldness in the face of a challenge? Do you take the first step when you
see a need or do you wait for others to step up?
In life, we need confront and take action rather than criticize and wait for others. And we need to
be first in some cases, the first to say hello, the first to give that smile, the first to speak up, the
first to look beyond today - that is daring!
We hope the poems and quotes encourage you and provide the motivation to dare to be!
Dare To Be
Poem By Steve Maraboli
When a new day begins,
Dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness,
Dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice,
Dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult,
Dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down,
Dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope,
Dare to find some.
When you're feeling tired,
Dare to keep going.
When times are tough,
Dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you,
Dare to love again.
When someone is hurting,
Dare to help them heal.
When another is lost,
Dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls,
Dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another,
Dare to make them smile.
When you feel great,
Dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended,
Dare to feel as you've done your best.
Dare to be the best you can -
At all times, dare to be!
Were the whole world good as you – not an atom better –
Were it just as pure and true,
Just as strong in faith and works;
Just as free from crafty quirks;
All extortion, all deceit;
Schemes its neighbors to defeat;
Schemes its neighbors to defraud;
Schemes some culprit to applaud –
Would this world be better?
If the whole world followed you – followed to the letter
Would it be a nobler world,
All deceit and falsehood hurled
From it altogether;
Malice, selfishness, and lust,
Banished from beneath the crust,
Covering human hearts from view
Tell me, if it followed you,
Would the world be better?
Poet: William Arthur Ward
Life is a strange, two-sided thing...
A dirge to chant, or a song to sing;
A sad, cold world, or a thrilling place,
A tough, old grind, or an exciting race.
A drudge-filled chore, or a challenging dare,
A thorny bush, or a flower fair.
A task to do or a chance to give,
A day to spend or a life to live!
by Theodore Roosevelt
It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,
because there is no effort
error and shortcoming;
but who does actually strive to do the deeds;
who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,
so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
who neither know victory nor defeat.
