  1. I take this quote and with my heart in my mouth I approach even where angels may fear to tread.

  2. whos it by

  3. whos this quote by?

  4. Ghost111 Says:

    It is by Les Brown

  5. I hate his quotation. It doesn’t actually make sense. Seeing as the stars are ridiculously further from earth then the moon is.

    • It’s called inertia

    • The stars may be further away, but the moon is a harder target; even if you miss your goal (the moon) you will eventually reach something just as, if not more, beautiful (the stars)…

    • You are very true.. i like to add that our earth has 1 moon.. so maybe it is also saying be unique in a way… and at worst ull be among the elite/stars… there are stars then there are superstars

  6. I love this quote but then again i dread it because even tho it says youll be with stars are the stars were u want to be or where u just landed because of a mistake tht u didnt land on the moon where u should be…. You may not understand because everyone will have a different perspective on this quotation….

  7. ths qoute doesnt make sense…it shld b written as ” Shoot For The stars.. Even If You Miss, You’ll Land on The MOON”‘ coz stars r vry far than moon…:) n reaching to stars is more difficult than reaching moon….

  8. What does this actually mean ? If you where to write a Response To Literature, how would you state your three thesis ?

    i made it up

  10. i want to know who rote that quote i forgot his name

  11. this made me helpful but i can control my dreams and it is saying to dream big even if it seems impossible

  12. I understand it like this: …from our point of view (from earth), the moon is bigger than the stars and hence it represent those bigger goals/achievements in life…while the stars represent those smaller achievements we acquire while we are aiming for the moon.

    However, even if the stars are smaller from our view point..I think the stars are equally or even more beautiful than the moon itself. Therefore, I believe they represent those riches that we acquire during life, but we don’t realize their true value, and that they may be even more valuable than what we originally aimed for.

  13. I love this quote! i am using it for a project and need to know when and where it was said! any answers?

  18. Alot of you are thick. Ofcourse the stars are further than the moon. the point is the metaphor he’s putting out. “shoot for the moon” and even if you miss you go the complete opposite way you can still land amongst the stars which is still a dream. think before you write dumb asses.

  19. I think Moon and Stars all all planets and all great targets

  20. I think Moon and Stars are all far-away planets and all great targets

  24. […] I have no life changing advice to give you to make this happen, however I do know one thing people need to start doing more of: dreaming big …and I mean REALLY big!  Don’t under-estimate yourself.  Like many successful dreamers have said, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” Set your goals so high that even if they, by any unfortunate circumstances, don’t work out you wil… […]

    “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”

    Shoot for the moon at your own risk. If you miss, assuming that your initial and sustained velocities are great enough to bypass solar gravitational influence, you will exceed orbital domain and proceed into extrasolar space, where you will remain for thousands of years. If you continue to proceed at your current velocity, it is unlikely that you will land upon any stars before you drift out of our galaxy. You will float for billions of years through the empty, desolate space until you fall upon another galaxy. If you are lucky, you may land upon a star after ten thousand more years or so. In that case, you will be instantaneously incinerated by radiant and thermal energy as you near the star, then further ravaged by internal nuclear and exothermic reactions once you finally do land upon the star. Your remains will stay within the sun until it is scattered across the galaxy by its supernova or imprisoned eternally after implosion and transformation into a black hole.

    If you don’t miss, assuming you have a way to remain intact upon collision with the moon, then congratulations. You have made it onto a remote, barren wasteland. In the three minutes that remain of your life before you shrivel up and die from lack of oxygen and minimal atmospheric pressure, you can reflect upon why you decided to shoot for the moon in the first place.

  32. Hello Michael, effectively, this is what would happen, from a rational point of view, but as said Rabelais ‘Science without conscience is the ruin of the soul’ (and consciousness inevitably has a delay on intelligence) and especially Einstein, ‘Imagination is more important than knowledge’, because this is what makes us human, with also, the ability to speak, to think about what is abstract, laughter, hope, spirituality (not religion that confuses faith and belief, which leads to intolerance), etc.
    and this quotation, if it comes from Less brown, which is a coatch for motivation, ‘shoot’ our imagination to motivate us, and if it is from Brian Littrell, ‘shoot’ our imagination to give us hope, because the moon and the stars have a very long history that accompanies our tiny story of little humans with very big ego who are destroying everything very quickly on earth. 😉

    Forgotten which is to many modern stationary users, however, not it appeared to the hundred or so personalities from world wide, who
    had evidently chosen to represent themselves
    or their business with something a bit special.

  34. If you shoot for the moon and miss you’ll live the rest of your short life trapped in a tin can hurtling endlessly around the rock you were hoping to escape. Learn your orbital mechanics, people.

  35. I too hate this. But not because it not logically sensible. Because if you shoot for the moon you should reach the moon and the stars won’t satisfy. If you work sincerely you can and you will land on the moon itself….

  36. you’re actually a excellent webmaster. The web site loadig velocity is amazing.
    It sort of feels that you’re doing any unique trick. In addition, The contents are’ve done a fantastic ativity on this

    The explanation should be aim high so even if you don’t get what you desired you will always have a good back up to fall back on.

  39. Not Telling Says:

    So the explanation for shoot for the moon even if you miss you will land among the stars is “It means that Shoot for the moon and Even if you miss you will land among the stars. yeah!!!”
    That’s the exact same thing!!
