To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to another is to risk involvement.

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.

The person who risks nothing,
Does nothing,
Has nothing and is nothing.
