Impossible is not a declaration, It’s a dare.

Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact, It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration, It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

Most of the great work in this world was done by men and women who didn’t believe that what they were doing was impossible. Talent is certainly beneficial, but only the right attitude can release it to reach its potential. – Adidas Ad

Calculus has taught me that while the impossible may well never be achievable, it is always possible to approach the infinitesimal threshold of impossibility.

  2. Thanks Brad! :)

  3. I’m pretty sure Woz felt getting the Apple I working was an impossibility until he asked Chuck Peddle for help. It’s a shame that some people who *really* achieve the “impossible” are sometimes relegated to the trash bin of history.
