Perspectives Unleashed

“To laugh, is to risk being a fool. To weep, is to risk appearing sentimental. To reach out for another, is to risk involvement. To express feelings, 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 loved in return. To live, is to risk dying. To hope, is to risk despair. But risks must be taken. Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. If you risk nothing and do nothing, you dull your spirit. You may avoid suffering and sorrow, but you cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love, and live.”
