I Dare You!

One of the ten best self-help books of all time — The Christian Science Monitor
“You can be a bigger person than you are,” promises William H. Danforth, “and I am going to prove it to you.” The founder of the Ralston Purina company, Danforth envisioned life as a checkerboard and developed a four-square philosophy, in which individuals must balance mental, physical, social, and religious needs to achieve a fulfilling, successful life. In this slim motivational volume, he offers you an irresistible challenge to fulfill your potential by taking risks.
I Dare You! is geared toward young adults but resonates with all ages. Danforth's “dares” promote a willingness to seize opportunities and strive harder, while developing a sense of adventure and a growing number of accomplishments. The author discusses the cultivation of strength, creativity, and character, and he encourages continuous learning and improvement. I Dare You! has served as an inspiration to generations of readers who took Danforth's words to heart, bettering themselves and sharing the fruits of their success with others.

    I DARE YOU!
    It is difficult to put a challenge on paper. I would rather look you straight in the eye and say, “I dare you!” In my mind that’s exactly what I am doing. I am on one side of a table. You are on the other. I am looking across and saying “I dare you!”

    I Dare You, young man, you who come from a home of poverty—I dare you to have the qualities of a Lincoln.

    I Dare You, heir of wealth and proud ancestry, with your generations of worthy stock, your traditions of leadership—I dare you to achieve something that will make the future point to you with even more pride than the present is pointing to those who have gone before you.

    “I Dare You” is for the daring few who are headed somewhere. Those afraid to Dare might as well pass it up. It will weary the lazy because it calls for immediate action. It will bore the sophisticated, and amuse the skeptics. It will antagonize others. Some will not even know what it is all about. It will not be over popular because it calls for courage, swift and daring. But in the eyes of you, one of the priceless few, I trust will come a gleam of battle as you read on. You can be a bigger person than you are and I am going to prove it to you.

    Which stood
    four-square to all
    Winds that blew.”
