Risk taking is free
is to risk appearing the fool.
is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out for another
is to risk involvement.
To expose feeling
is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas, your dreams before the 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, the risk must be taken ...
because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing ...
does nothing, has nothing ... is nothing.
You may avoid suffering and sorrow ...
but you simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow ... love.
You will live, chained by your certitudes ...
You will be a slave ...
who has forfeited your freedom.
Live your Dreaming .. for ..
Only a person who risks is free!
