A RISK WORTH TAKING

To laugh is to risk appearing a fool
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental
To reach out for another is to risk involvement
To expose our feelings is to risk exposing our true self
To place your ideas and dreams before the crowd is to risk loss
To love is to risk not being loved in return
To live is to risk dying
To hope is to risk despair.
But risk we must ...
Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing
The man, the woman, the child who risks nothng
Does nothing, has nothing; can become nothing. ~ Author Unknown

"When one is out of touch with oneself;
one cannot touch others" 
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
