Taking Risks



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


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, and is nothing.


They may avoid suffering and sorrow but they cannot learn, feel, change, grow love, live.


Chained by their certitudes they are a slave, they have forfeited their freedom.


Only a person who risks is free."



Author Unknown


Who was it that said, most people live lives  of quiet desperation?
