To Will and To Dare. To will is to know. To think is to act, but to will is to have the potential to think and act. Will is intention, but we often don’t understand exactly what it is to intend anything at all. To dare is to confront the universal will in your awareness, and to act despite the immensity of it. To dare is to take a stance characterized by an internal locus of control. Reality can only tell you so much, then you actually have to take the step of “knowing”. How long can you wait and see? What kind of life is that?

“The most difficult thing in the world is to reveal yourself, to express what you have to. As an artist, I feel that we must try many things – but above all we must dare to fail. You must be willing to risk everything to really express it all.” John Cassavetes (American Actor and Screenwriter, 1929-1989)
