Risk Taking Is Free

To Laugh Is To Risk Appearing the Fool

To Weep Is To Risk Appearing Sentimental

To Reach Out For Another Is To Risk Involvement

To Expose Feeling 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 In Return

To Live Is To Risk Dying

To Hope Is To Risk Despair

To Try Is To Risk Failure

But The Risk Must Be Taken, Because the Greatest Hazard in Life Is To Risk Nothing

The Person Who Risks Nothing, Does Nothing, Has Nothing And Is Nothing

He May Avoid Suffering and Sorrow, but He Simply Cannot Learn, Feel, Change, Grow, Love or Live

Chained By His Certitudes, He Is a Slave, He Has Forfeited Freedom

Only a Person Who Risks…Is Free.
