To laugh is to risk appearing fool;

To weep is to risk appearing sentimental;

To reach out for another is to risk involvement;

To expose your feeling is to risk exposing your true self;

To love is to risk not being loved in return;

To place your ideas, your dream before the crowd is to risk the loss;

To live is to risk dying;

To hope is to risk failure;

To try at all is to risk failure;

However, risk we must.

Because the greatest hazards to life is to risk nothing;

The man who risks nothing

Does nothing…have anything…is nothing…?

He may avoid suffering...but he simply cannot learn,

Feel, change, grow, love or live.

Chained by his certitudes, he is a slave.

He has forfeited freedom.

Only the person who risk can be called a free man.
