Alone of prejudices, anti-Zionism is sacrosanct. How very dare we distinguish the motivation of one sort from another? Or question, in any instance, an anti-Zionist’s good faith? In fact, what determines whether anti-Zionism is anti-Semitic is the nature of it.

I’ve had people say to me, ‘How dare you have a Twitter,’ you know, with my gimmick, I guess, and I just say, ‘It’s 2017.’ It’d be hard to find someone in America who doesn’t have a phone that has Twitter capabilities. So as a WWE Superstar, I think it’s OK that I have a Twitter, people.
Luke Harper

Jesse Ventura
Power is given only to those who dare to lower themselves and pick it up. Only one thing matters, one thing; to be able to dare!

People are racist about redheads in a way they’d never dare to be about black or Asian people.

Duncan Jones
I dare say that if most comedians today, the gifted ones, were to sit down and write, they’d learn more about their craft. But what happens is they get out there before they learn what their viewpoint is, if any.
Mort Sahl
Don’t hold on to the past; it won’t help in moving forward. Dare to dream big.

Carol Burnett
I’m very used to stages and dressing rooms. And dare I say it, much as I like being at home, I love the buzz of a new hotel room. It never quite loses its thing.

Theodore Roosevelt
One must work and dare if one really wants to live.
Vincent Van Gogh
‘Sweet Valley High’ is fantastic, fabulous, a little bit campy, and – dare I say it – cinematic.
Diablo Cody

John Stuart Mill
I started out in graduate school to be a fiction writer. I thought I wanted to write short stories. I started writing poems at that point only because a friend of mine dared me to write a poem.

Taylor Jenkins Reid
I've been alienating my public since I was 20 years old

I’ve been alienating my public since I was 20 years old. When ‘American Buffalo’ came out on Broadway, people would storm out and say, ‘How dare he use that kind of language!’ Of course I’m alienating the public! That’s what they pay me for.
David Mamet
James O’Keefe is a journalist, doing the work ‘real’ journalists don’t dare, and has been conducting undercover investigations for years with dozens of scalps collected along the way.

Katie Pavlich
He who would begun has half done. Dare to be wise; begin.
We must speak up for those who do not dare to speak, those who are not allowed to, and those who cannot.
Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden
My job is to bring out in people what they wouldn’t dare do themselves.
Karl Lagerfeld
Clothes are only completed when somebody actually wears them. If they were art, they could be more abstract. As long as something is new and has never been seen before, I don’t mind if people call it art. Wear them if you dare.
Rei Kawakubo
What Must-See T.V. was all about was one network, one night, for one decade. And a third of the country would come and watch Must-See T.V. And you didn’t dare go to work the next day, because if you hadn’t watched, you would be left out of the conversation, that water-cooler conversation.
Warren Littlefield
Clearly independent journalists – domestic journalists – run a high risk if they dare to take on serious investigative work.

I remember the first horror movie I saw – I was five years old; it was a direct-to-video movie called ‘Truth or Dare: a Critical Madness,’ which is sort of badly fantastic or fantastically bad. And then ‘Gremlins’ was an early movie that I saw, and ‘Nightmare on Elm Street 3.’
Elijah Wood

Andrew Lloyd Webber
What is a friend? I will tell you… it is someone with whom you dare to be yourself.
Frank Crane
New York is still the most glamorous city I’ve ever been to, but it’s starting to feel older. The sirens still wail; the paths in Central Park still pulsate with joggers. The Manhattan schist still trembles beneath your feet. But weirdly, it’s starting to feel, dare I say it, a bit quaint.
Tom Hollander
‘The Twilight Zone’ was sometimes shockingly cruel, far crueller than most TV drama today would dare to be.
Charlie Brooker
The minute a person whose word means a great deal to others dare to take the open-hearted and courageous way, many others follow.

Lucy Powell
One of the whole reasons for starting my initiative, Dare to be Different, is about getting more girls interested in motorsport and that’s everywhere, not just driving on track but creating a network where they have the support around them.
Susie Wolff
If Oak Flat were a Christian holy site or, for that matter, Jewish or Muslim, no senator who wished to remain in office would dare to sneak a backdoor deal for its destruction into a spending bill – no matter what mining-company profits or jobs might result. But this is Indian religion.
Lydia Millet
I have always appreciated those who dare to experiment with materials and proportions.
Zaha Hadid
Who’s not played spin the bottle? But I never done the kiss version. I always wanted to, but I never did. We did the truth or dare one instead.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock
No one can dare cast an evil eye on India.
Rajnath Singh
The score is not a bible, and I am never afraid to dare. The music is behind those dots.
Vladimir Horowitz

Charles Caleb Colton

Tamilisai Soundararajan

Erna Solberg
I ask myself questions that journalists don’t dare to ask or don’t know how to ask.
Pedro Almodovar
Steven, my friend who came out to me my senior year, was a huge Madonna fan. So I may know all the words to ‘Bedtime Stories,’ ‘Erotica,’ and a few more of her albums – and we may have watched ‘Truth or Dare’ a thousand times.
Jason Mraz
Stuart Blumberg is suddenly an authority on the modern – or, dare we say, post-modern – family, thanks to the critically-acclaimed debut of his new film, ‘The Kids Are All Right.’
Rachel Sklar
Dare to be true. Nothing can need a lie: a fault which needs it most, grows two thereby.

I dare you all to write one more thing that you won't s

I dare you all to write one more thing that you won’t say to my face.

Dwight L. Moody
I’ve just begun to dare to think I perhaps am a bit of an artist.
David Lean
A wise nation should cultivate a political spirit that allows opponents to cooperate without fearing an automatic execution from their core supporters. Who knew that the real rogues in American politics would be the ones who dare to get along?
Jon Meacham
People with a lot of money aren’t in the business of throwing it away, and those paying footballers’ wages, organising parking spaces for dead sharks, and even, dare I say it, buying iPads, are doing it because, for them, it’s worth the money.
Ian Watson
The way Ederson plays is so brave. To dare to play like that is bravery and it also enables City to play with a much higher press. They are able to really press because they know any ball in behind he will sweep up.
Kasper Schmeichel
Talking about weight at all – even your own – has become increasingly tricky, especially if you dare to say that you would quite like to lose a few pounds.
Susanna Reid
There be those who say that things and places have souls, and there be those who say they have not; I dare not say, myself, but I will tell of The Street.
H. P. Lovecraft
I’m doing modeling to stay alive. I don’t enjoy my work. I don’t find it creative. You don’t need brains, and there are no heavy qualifications. All it takes is not to be shy and to dare to make a fool of yourself. But I shouldn’t complain, because I am privileged enough to be overpaid.
Paulina Porizkova
The secret is to write just anything, to dare to write just anything, because when you write just anything, you begin to say what is important.
Julien Green
When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
Audre Lorde
When you dare me to do something, I will say, ‘Watch me’. That is what I say to critics. ‘Watch me’.
Amaury Nolasco
Theater isn’t there to provide answers. Only possibilities. I just ask the questions. But I believe hope comes from the fact that there is a potential for redemption. At the core, that’s what matters in the theater I’m attracted to. Do we dare to hope? Do we allow ourselves to hope?
Joe Mantello
Practice rather than preach. Make of your life an affirmation, defined by your ideals, not the negation of others. Dare to the level of your capability then go beyond to a higher level.
Alexander Haig
I was so involved in the regular joy of school that I didn’t do any plays. On a dare, I auditioned for ‘South Pacific’ my junior year. I showed up at the last minute to the audition and ended up getting cast as the lead. I haven’t turned back since then.
Renee Elise Goldsberry
I had a father who was active, present. There are people out there that never knew their fathers, didn’t have their father’s support. If I were to complain, that would be real sad. How dare I?

Nobody can dare me to do anything that I don’t come up with on my own.

Galileo Galilei
Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.
Dale Carnegie
When I first started, it was a dare. Someone basically said, ‘You’re a tough guy… but I’ll bet you won’t get on a microphone in front of a bunch of people.’ I was terrified, but I did it. Once I broke the ice and got onstage and got some laughs, I thought, ‘That’s not so bad.’
Charlie Murphy
We need to risk, we need to dare to risk and fail greatly because that’s the only way we grow.
Emilio Estevez
The mere existence of ‘Buffy’ proves the declinists wrong about one thing: Hollywood commercialism can produce great art. Complex and evolving characters. Playful language. Joy and sorrow, pathos and elation. Episodes that dare to be different – to tell stories in silence or in song. Big themes and terrible choices.
Virginia Postrel
As I’ve grown – dare I say it – older, I had hopes of indulging my dreams of being a sailor.
Jimmy Webb
Obeying instructions I should never dare to disregard, expressing, also, my own firm conviction, I rise in behalf of the State of New York to propose a nomination with which the country and the Republican party can grandly win.
Roscoe Conkling
I don’t have any hidden talents but if you dare me to do something I’ll go after it big time.
Izabel Goulart
I would not dare to say that there is a direct relation between mathematics and madness, but there is no doubt that great mathematicians suffer from maniacal characteristics, delirium, and symptoms of schizophrenia.
John Forbes Nash, Jr.
In the end I got a major newspaper in South East Asia to buy a whistleblower’s account for a ludicrous bunch of money. Off I toddled, published the story, which the newspaper didn’t dare do in the end and then of course I was unleashed into a rollercoaster of denial and backlash.
Clare Rewcastle Brown
I have been so copied by those people who have made for

I have been so copied by those people who have made fortunes that people assume I am that rich. But I did things for the excitement, the dare, the fact that it was new, not for the money. And too many times I was the first, not the beneficiary.
Grace Jones
For above all things Love means sweetness, and truth, and measure; yea, loyalty to the loved one and to your word. And because of this I dare not meddle with so high a matter.
Marie de France
I’m as skeptical as anyone would be about celebrities and causes – and I will dare to say to you that I don’t think of myself as a celebrity per se.
All the music I loved as a child, people thought it was junk. People were unaware of the subtext in so many of those records, but if you were a kid, you were just completely tuned in, even though you didn’t always say – you wouldn’t dare say it was beautiful.
Bruce Springsteen
I was told to challenge every spiritual teacher, every world leader to utter the one sentence that no religion, no political party, and no nation on the face of the earth will dare utter: ‘Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way.
Neale Donald Walsch
True Dare Kiss’ is a gothic drama about a highly dysfunctional Mancunian family who, after 20 years, reconvene for the funeral of their father. I wanted to play Phil because I really liked the character, and there is an element of mystery about her – which I can’t reveal.
Dervla Kirwan
American actors are all muscular, tanned, white teeth and they have this indestructible confidence. We British are all… Dare I say it? Pessimistic.
Max Irons
There is in true beauty, as in courage, something which narrow souls cannot dare to admire.
William Congreve
It would almost seem that – dare I say this – private transportation is more efficient than mass public-transit!
Steven Crowder
We judge people based on their clothes, social class, and, dare I say, ethnicity. Our comedians make light of these stereotypes regularly, and we laugh at their accuracy.
When ‘Dare Me’ was first in development, it was hard to make the case for why it’d be interesting to anybody other than teenage girls. It’d often be treated, like, on first glance, ‘What is this? ‘Pretty Little Liars?’ ‘Mean Girls?” It never was that.
Megan Abbott
They said that Etta James is still vulgar. I said, Oh, how dare them say I’m still vulgar. I’m vulgar because I dance in the chair. What would they want me to do? Want me to just be still or something like that? I’ve got to do something.
Etta James
It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle.
Richard M. DeVos
I think when you are dealing with Brock Lesnar, you have to show up ready to deal with Brock Lesnar. Brock is the type of guy who is not going to give you an inch. If you are going to get anything from him, you have to take it, and he’s going to dare you to take it.
Samoa Joe
Girls are always running through my mind. They don’t dare walk.
Andy Gibb
There’s obviously a sense of responsibility that comes with having this following and having fans, and so there’s a lot of stuff that I won’t dare to post, just because I want to be a good influence.
Cameron Dallas
This is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure.
Winston Churchill
Christopher Hitchens was a wit, a charmer, and a troublemaker, and to those who knew him well, he was a gift from – dare I say it – God.
Graydon Carter
I have so much respect for the big opera singers that I never dare to say I’m a singer.
Barbara Sukowa
If you go looking for loonies and religious fanatics and dropouts and freaks, I dare say you’ll find it.
Stephen Fry
Has Jesus saved me? I dare not speak with any hesitation here; I know He has. His Word is true; therefore, I am saved.
Charles Spurgeon
In America… it’s not divided, but with Trump now, it’s like you are asking for trouble. We wouldn’t dare to say any of the things he is saying in our country and get away with it. It’s just… blasphemy.
Mo Farah
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
The laws have become so straight-jacketing that presidents and their aides dare not keep journals or diaries, lest they be subpoenaed by avid special prosecutors.
Christopher Buckley
Few men would dare to read their own autobiography if all their deeds were recorded in it; few can look back upon their entire career without a blush.
Charles Spurgeon
It took the madmen of yesterday for us to be able to act with extreme clarity today. I want to be one of those madmen. We must dare to invent the future.
Thomas Sankara
I dare say that a majority of the American people think that having a fair hearing on an issue of importance in our relations with Mexico is extremely important to our national interest, as well as theirs.
William Weld
My mantra is, ‘Dare to be…’ I leave it open-ended, because depending on the mood, the weather, the day, you might need a different power word. Having a power word can help steer you in the right direction, especially when things aren’t going your way.
Hilary Knight
‘Dare to Discipline’ was published in 1970 in the midst of the Vietnam War and a culture of rebellion. The book was written in that context, but the principles of child rearing have not changed.
James Dobson
Ekta Kapoor, the producer of ‘Kaahin… ‘ once told me that you’ve got to keep breaking the mould to keep yourself in the game. Hence, I dare to do something different. For instance, after years of essaying flamboyantly dressed negative roles, I took on one of a demure singer in Zee TV’s ‘Sanjog Se Bani Sangini.’
Sudha Chandran
I must tell you I take terrible risks. Because my playing is very clear, when I make a mistake you hear it. If you want me to play only the notes without any specific dynamics, I will never make one mistake. Never be afraid to dare.
Vladimir Horowitz
Who uses funds more productively - private citizens or

Who uses funds more productively – private citizens or the government? I dare say that Warren Buffett can use his surplus funds more effectively in private business and creating jobs than the government can.
Mark Skousen
I find the whole feminist thing very boring. They are so much on the defensive that they dare not love a man because they feel assaulted by being dependent.
Diana Rigg
You have to understand that people have to pay a price for peace. If you dare to struggle, you dare to win.
Fred Hampton
Change will not come from above, it will come from below, from the small and medium size businesspeople. They do dare to show their faces. They applaud us and help us financially.
Vicente Fox
You may as well say, ‘That’s a valiant flea that dare eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
William Tecumseh Sherman
Dare to visualize a world in which your most treasured dreams have become true.
Ralph Marston
When we dare to hope for a certain outcome and take action after action toward that outcome, we’re dealing with nothing less than the spirit of creativity itself.
Justine Musk
But sometimes it’s good to dare yourself to do the unthinkable. And rather than stand in front of an audience with no clothes on, I decided to have a go at stand-up comedy.
Evan Davis
Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try.
Mary Kay Ash
I speak truth, not so much as I would, but as much as I dare; and I dare a little more, as I grown older.
Catherine Drinker Bowen
People love my voice because they say I say what they were thinking but dare not to say because they had a filter or a job.
Luvvie Ajayi
Apple is to the United States government what Clarence Thomas was to the civil rights coalition. How dare you get this big sidestepping us.
Rush Limbaugh
The writer, when he is also an artist, is someone who admits what others don’t dare reveal.
Elia Kazan
Who would dare assign to art the sterile function of imitating nature?
Charles Baudelaire
Our failure to properly deal with Germany and Japan early cost the world dearly later on. We dare not make the same mistake with China.
Steve Forbes
I started to use music almost like a therapist, where it’s like, everything that I don’t really dare to say or speak about, I can sing about.
Tove Lo
In New York I was always so scared of saying that I wrote fiction. It just seemed like, ‘Who am I to dare to do that thing here? The epicenter of publishing and writers?’ I found all that very intimidating and avoided writing as a response.
Jhumpa Lahiri
If I get a hangnail, I don’t dare complain! Life is good. I wake up humming.
Rita Moreno
People would write me hate letters. How dare I try to represent Hispanics when I was so white? I tried to make them see it was racism.
Cristina Saralegui
Our inclination is to show our Lord only what we feel comfortable with. But the more we dare to reveal our whole trembling self to him, the more we will be able to sense that his love, which is perfect love, casts out all our fears.
Henri Nouwen
Those who can bear all can dare all.
Luc de Clapiers
Being a conservative union member is almost like being an actor in Hollywood: You don’t dare say it, or you might be injured on the job, or you might be laid off, or your family might have something happen to them.
Rush Limbaugh
Jesus died to forgive our sins. Dare we make his martyrdom meaningless by not committing them?
Jules Feiffer
Dare to wear the foolish clown face.
Frank Sinatra
Men never cling to their dreams with such tenacity as at the moment when they are losing faith in them, and know it, but do not dare yet to confess it to themselves.
William Graham Sumner
The person who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore.
Dale Carnegie
People who pigeonhole us for our queerness are not people I’m interested in knowing. They’re so boring. How dare you be so boring? Grow up. Get some Ray-Bans.
Ben Hopkins
That so few now dare to be eccentric, marks the chief danger of the time.
John Stuart Mill
Love comes when manipulation stops; when you think more about the other person than about his or her reactions to you. When you dare to reveal yourself fully. When you dare to be vulnerable.
Joyce Brothers
There were only 170 neurologists in Britain then and, whether spoken or unspoken, there was this insidious feeling. How can Bannister, a mere athlete, probably spoilt by all the publicity and fame, dare aspire to neurology? But I’d done a lot of research, and my academic record was very good.
Roger Bannister
The worst of my actions or conditions seem not so ugly unto me as I find it both ugly and base not to dare to avouch for them.
Michel de Montaigne
I dare to do things - that's how I survive.

I dare to do things – that’s how I survive.
Gail Sheehy
In love, we have to dare everything if we really love.
Alain Delon
