To laugh is to risk appearing the fool,
To cry is to risk appearing sentimental,
To reach out for 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 their loss, 
To love is to risk not being loved in return, 
To live is to risk dying, 
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, 
They may avoid suffering and sorrow, 
But they simply cannot learn, grow, feel, love, live, be totally free, 
Chained by their own fears, they are a slave, 
They have forfeited their true freedom, 
Only a person who risks is free!
