Only on the edge of the grave can man conclude anything.
It's like a novelist writing far out things. If it makes a point and makes sense, then people like to read that. But if it's off in left field and goes over the edge, you lose it. The same with musical talent, I think.
You've got to be closer to the edge than ever to win. That means sometimes you go over the edge, and I don't mean driving, either.
Comedy has to be done en clair. You can't blunt the edge of wit or the point of satire with obscurity. Try to imagine a famous witty saying that is not immediately clear.
You know, many people have said that I'm on the edge and I'm maverick for some of the big operations that I've done. I'm not at all. I pray; I ask God to give me wisdom, 'Should I do it?', guidance in terms of how to do it, who to consult with. All those kind of things are incredibly important.
I think you should ride the line between fatigue and chaos. The chaos keeps the energy level and spontaneity maximized, while fatigue is just over the edge, and you should try to avoid it.
Surely the President can agree with us, that theft from government is not good. I know it's bold. It's out on the edge. I know from a Chicago-Springfield background it's hard to fully grasp that honesty could be part of government.
'Cosmos' is an occasion to bring everything that I have, all of my capacity to communicate. We may go to the edge of the universe, but we're going to land right on you: in your heart, in your soul, in your mind. My goal is to have people know that they are participants in this great unfolding cosmic story.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Authority without wisdom is like a heavy ax without an edge, fitter to bruise than polish.

I keep falling off the edge of the stage because I can't see it. I can't see my wrinkles in the mirror either, though.
Whenever you're aggressive, you're at the edge of mistakes.
Growing up in a particular neighborhood, growing up in a working-class family, not having much money, all of those things fire you and can give you an edge, can give you an anger.
I always love training at crazy times - it's an edge I'm creating over everyone else.
The existing principle of selfish interest and competition has been carried to its extreme point; and, in its progress, has isolated the heart of man, blunted the edge of his finest sensibilities, and annihilated all his most generous impulses and sympathies.
I think the rock'n'roll myth of living on the edge is a pile of crap.
Prescott National Forest is right on the edge of my home in Arizona.
Maynard James Keenan
I did not like 'The Hurt Locker.' It's a lazy way to make a movie, frankly. I could put you on the edge of your seat quite easily, and have you feel the tension for 2 hours, if every other scene practically is, 'Should we cut the red wire or the green wire?'
You're not human if you don't feel fear. But I've learnt to treat fear as an emotion that sharpens me. It's there to give me that edge for what I have to do.

From a good book, I want to be taken to the very edge. I want a glimpse into that outer darkness.
The hand is the cutting edge of the mind.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
