[MOL] food for thought...risks



Risks

 To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.
 To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
 To reach out to another is to risk involvement.
 To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
 To place your ideas and 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 to risk
 nothing.
 The person who risks nothing does nothing, has nothing and is nothing.
 He may avoid suffering and sorrow but he cannot learn, feel, change,
 grow or live.
 Chained by his certitude's, he is slave; he has forfeited his freedom.
 Only a person who risks is free.
