Risk

  • To laugh
    is to risk appearing the fool

    To weep
    is to risk being called sentimental

    To reach out to another
    is to risk involvement

    To expose feelings
    is to risk showing your true self

    To place your ideas and your dreams before the crowd
    is to risk being called naive

    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 risks must be taken, because the greatest risk in life is to risk nothing

    The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing

    He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow or love

    Chained by his certitude, he is a slave; he has forfeited his freedom

    Only the person who risks is truly free
