"RISKS " -
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 feelings is to risk exposing your true self .
To please ideas and dreams before a 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 risk must be taken, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow ,but they
Cannot learn , feel, change, grow ,love , live.
Chained by their certitude , they are slave ;/they have forfeited their freedom.
Only a person who risks is truly free. - @iampcb
