Risks


Danger can never be overcome without taking risks. - Unknown

Do not be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave. - Unknown

He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life. - Muhammad Ali

I don't think about risks much. I just do what I want to do. If you gotta go, you gotta go. - Lillian Carter

If you risk nothing, then you risk everything. - Unknown

Only by great risks can great results be achieved. - Xerxes

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. And only those who dare to take risks are likely to be great. - Unknown

Sometimes you just have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down. - Kobi Yamada

Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash. - George Patton

Taking risks means reaching out in spite of fears and anxieties. We cannot expect our anxieties to just disappear. Only after we experience reaching out are anxieties and fears apt to diminish. - Jerry Greenwald 

The key to successful risk-taking is to calculate your chances and possible losses. If they weigh in your favour or you can afford the losses – take it. - Unknown

To laugh is to risk appearing the fool. To weep is to risk being called sentimental. To reach out to another is to risk involvement. To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self. To place your ideas, your dreams before the crowd is to risk being called naive. To love is to risk not being loved in return. To live is to risk dying. To hope is to risk despair, and 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 becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live. Chained by his certitudes, he is a slave, hes forfeited his freedom. Only the person who risks is truly free. - Leo Buscaglia
