The Cost of Risk Taking

RISK AWR WC T7L LosAngeles Graffiti Art

Originally uploaded by anarchosyn

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 feeling 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
To try is to risk failure
But the risk 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.
He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love, or live.
Only a person who risks - is truly free.

One of my favorites, hope you enjoy as well :)
