Feel free to be snarky (hard to resist), or to wax metaphorical like some of these writers have:

“When a man is standing at the top of a cliff, it isn’t fear of falling that keeps him rooted to the edge — it’s the fear of not being able to resist the desire to jump, just to see what falling feels like.” ~Cristelle Comby

“She felt as if she were standing on the edge of a precipice… There must be another life, here and now, she thought. This is too short, too broken. We know nothing, even about ourselves.” ~Virginia Woolf

“The bridge makes life easier; but the cliff makes you stronger!”
~Mehmet Murat ildan

       “You’ve got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.” ~Ray Bradbury

“And so he leaped to a different kind of death than the one he’d planned: ‘God, I don’t know what you’re doing,” he’d said, ‘I never did. But whatever it is, I’m in.’” ~Healing River

“It wasn’t just a leap of faith, it was a leap of life, a leap away from the death that lay behind, and forward toward the life of hope, purpose, and love that lay ahead.” ~My Leap of Life

    Did you happen to see one of my contacts down there? I know it’s like trying to find a needle in the haystack, but you have to find it. I can’t see a thing out of that eye.

    Dear Mitch,

    Leaps of faith often do fall into this visual. I tend do think it’s more like Indiana Jones step into nothing, but it’s just hidden until someone steps out on it.

    Thanks, Gary

    All are inspiring quotes, but that first one…nope. Fear of falling would keep me there, probably a bit farther back from the edge. 😆
