The Sky’s the Limit

tracksonthemoonNever tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon.” ~ Unknown

What does the statement mean? (Comments below)

  1. I guess its saying they don’t want other people telling THEM what their own limit is.For example, if i told you that you were only capable of making B’s and C’s when you know that you could do better than what i told you , you could do. ~ Sunny
  2. Put simply: people say that the sky is the limit, but the moon is higher than the sky (what with it being in space and all) and yet people have walked on the moon; thus the sky is not the limit – people can get higher and there may well be no limits at all. It’s riffing on the idea that more is always possible, and that received wisdom is often flawed. and no, you don’t sound stupid. ~ Gene
  3. THIS quote means that there AREN’T any limits – the sky isn’t the limit because we blast through it in space shuttles with every manned space mission. Pretty cool quote. Hope this helps. ~ Jerry
