How to use leap in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    We all know that the life in real world is inherently risky. Those who are not willing to take the risks always settle for the ordinary, and the life also rewards them with what they settle for - the ordinary. On the other hand, those who take the risks, and jump off the cliffs, find that they build their wings on the way down. Life rewards these risk-takers and cliff-jumpers with Success that is beyond any measures - the extraordinary. That's why, in my view, the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one having best ideas or better abilities, but the courage one demonstrates by taking a risk to take a risk and win. History remembers these risk-takers and their extraordinary accomplishments, and forgets the squeamish non-achievers. Never be afraid to take the risks, and diving into unknown oceans. After all, pearls don't lie on the seashore, and you must dive for it into deep ocean if you want one. Go on, take a leap into uncertainty, and you'll see your wings opening on your way down. You may see a net appearing too, but you must take that leap first. Never settle for anything less. You won't regret, because only those who take risks win in this world. All the best!

  2. Justin Lehmiller:

    I found that most people who acted on their fantasies reported that the experience was at least as good -- if not better -- than they were expecting and said that it improved their relationship, but it isn't something you want to leap into or take lightly.

  3. Jeffrey Hogan:

    But really this aircraft is a monumental leap in capabilities for Afghan Air Force. It will allow The A-29s to do some overlap of those( Mi-35) missions and will do a lot better. It will also expand some other missions, which they currently can not execute.

  4. Agnes de Mille:

    Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how…We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.

  5. Bob Raymer:

    California is about to take a quantum leap in energy standards, no other state in the nation mandates solar, and we are about to take that leap.
