Famous quotes containing the word leap:

    I cannot tell how many times we had to walk on account of falls or rapids. We were expecting all the while that the river would take a final leap and get to smooth water, but there was no improvement this forenoon.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    As long as she is young and personable, every woman may cherish the dream that she may leap up the social ladder and dim the sheen of luxury by sheer natural loveliness; the few examples of such a feat are kept before the eye of the public.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.
    Neil Armstrong (b. 1930)
