I found this in an old textbook and I don’t know the author…
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 hs simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love..live. Chained by his certitudes, he is a slave, he has forfeited freedom. Only a person who risks is free.
Wow. Well said. What do you have to risk?
