Quotes of the Day for 29 February 2012 – Leap

This is the third time that the Quotes of the Day have been published on 29 February. There are other days of the year for which there have been very few previous issues; power outages, long hours on other projects, and creative failures in coming up with a good theme have all taken their toll. It's entirely possible that this is the only date for which I have a 100% score. Of course, the subject of the day has to be Leap.

The quotes:

When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap.
     - Cynthia Heimel

     - Gloria Steinem

When men have come to the edge of a precipice, it is the lover of life who has the spirit to leap backwards, and only the pessimist who continues to believe in progress.
     - Gilbert Keith Chesterton, 1874 - 1936

Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at it destination full of hope.
     - Maya Angelou

Half of the failures in life come from pulling one's horse when he is leaping.
     - Thomas Hood, 1799 - 1845

Life is a traveling to the edge of knowledge, then a leap taken.
     - D. H. Lawrence, 1885 - 1930
