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 place our ideas, our 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.
Risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing does nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love...live. Chained by his certitude, he is a slave; he has forfeited freedom.
"Failing to step out in faith is to risk missing real life." -Neil Anderson
"What a privilege for us to be able to walk by faith in God Himself, armed with all the promises of His word." -Neil Anderson
