autolycus BS: Great Quotes - relevant to today's world (184* d) RE: BS: Great Quotes - relevant to today's world 09 Sep 11

"There are many kinds of risks in life: emotional, intellectual and physical. The important ones are those that help you to grow and express your values.

"To laugh is to risk appearing foolish.
"To weep is to risk appearing foolish.
"To reach out for another is to risk involvement.
"To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
"To place your ideas and dreams before the crowd is to risk 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 at all is to risk failure.

"But risk we must because the greatest hazard is to risk nothing at all."

Thus far the quote is by Wally "Famous" Amos.

The continuation by an unknown hand is:-

"The person who risks nothing has nothing, is nothing, does nothing.
"They may avoid suffering and sorrow but simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love, live.
"Chained by attitudes we become slaves, forfeit freedom.
"Only the person who takes risks is free."
