“To reach out for another is to risk involvement.

To expose one’s feelings is to risk exposing your true self.

To place your ideas, your dreams, before a 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 risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard

In life is risk nothing.

They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they cannot learn,

 feel, change, grow, love, live.

Chained by their attitudes, they are a slave,

They have forfeited their freedom.

Only a person who risks is free.”
