With Risk There Is Reward

To laugh is to risk appearing a fool

To weep is to risk appearing sentimental

To reach out to another is to risk involvement

To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self

To place your ideas and dreams before a 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 risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he cannot learn, feel change, grow or live
Chained by his servitude he is a slave who has forfeited all freedom. Only a person who risks is free.

"The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; and the realist adjusts the sails."

William Arthur Ward

In the world to come they will not ask, "Why were you not Moses"? They will ask, "Why were you not Simplysexy?"
