Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.
Hermann Hesse

All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
Havelock Ellis

I'm not sure I always feel like I'm in the seat. Sometimes I'm only holding on by one hand and flying out behind the roller coaster. I don't know anybody who doesn't feel that way.
David Morse

Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand well.
Jack London

If you have a feeling-vision of the thing - a painting, a building, a garden, a piece of a neighborhood - as long as you're very firmly anchored in your knowledge of that thing, and you can see it with your eyes closed, you can keep correcting your actions... It's not a question of holding onto every little detail, but of holding onto the feeling.
Christopher Alexander

Valor grows by daring, fear by holding back.
Publilius Syrus
