Take A Risk

Risk It!

(Poem quoted in Dear Abby; maybe written by Leo Buscalia)

To laugh… is to risk being a fool.

To weep… is to risk appearing sentimental.

To reach out… to another is to risk involvement.

To express feelings… is to risk exposing your true self.

To place your ideas and 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.

The person who risks nothing…does nothing, has nothing and is nothing.

They may avoid suffering and sorrow, but they simply cannot learn,feel, change, grow, love or live.

Risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

Only a person who risks is free…
