Examples of daring in a Sentence

  1. Theodore Roosevelt, Paris, Sorbonne 1910:

    It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

  2. Riccardo Tisci:

    ...The Victorian era (was) a time in Britain for great change and progress, an era that has always inspired me and my work, (Burberry) chose to present his company with an emblem of a knight on a horse, but for his family crest, he instead chose a unicorn. Thomas Burberry was a daring innovator but also a romantic and a dreamer.

  3. Theodore Roosevelt:

    It is not the critic that counts not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or the doer of deeds could have 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 and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming but he who does actually strive to do the deed who knows the great devotion 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 while daring greatly, knows that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls, who know neither victory nor defeat.

  4. Charlie Rose:

    CBS is catching up to the ‘Today Show’ because CBS made the daring gamble to be a little different, selecting an old-timer like Charlie Rose and doing long-format interviews aren’t what typically works in morning TV. But CBS has shown that not only is it OK to be different, it pays to be different if you want to distinguish yourself in a marketplace where most network news shows all look and sound alike.

  5. Matteo Garrone:

    It was an ambitious project, granted, one had to be a bit bold and daring to do. But I launched into this adventure with a whole group of actors and actresses who are quite extraordinary and you saw the result.
