To Risk - Words to Remember - Take Those Risks



 

To laugh is to risk appearing a fool.

To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.

To reach out for another is to risk exposing your true self.

To place your ideas, your dreams before the crowd is to risk their loss.

To love is to risk not being loved in return.

To live is to risk dying.

To hope is to risk despair.

To try is to risk failure.

But risk needs to be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

The person who risked nothing does nothing has nothing is nothing.

He may have void suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love... Live. Chained by his beliefs, he is a slave; he has forfeited freedom. Only a person who risks is free.
