To laugh, is to risk playing the fool
To weep, is to risk appearing sentimental
To reach out for another, is to risk involvement
To expose feelings, is to risk exposing our true selves
To put 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 at all, is to risk failure
BUT RISK MUST BE TAKEN
Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing
The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing
They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they simply cannot learn, change, feel, grow, love or live…..
Chained by their attitudes they are slaves
ONLY THE PERSON WHO RISK IS FREE
