People with a sense of challenge realize that they'll never achieve peak creativity or experience joy unless they take some risks.
Contributed by: Zaady
There has been a calculated risk in every stage of American development--pioneers who were not afraid of the wilderness, businessmen who were not afraid of failure, and dreamers who were not afraid of action.
The greatest risk is not taking one.
If you take risks, you may fail. But if you don't take risks, you will surely fail. The greatest risk of all is to do nothing.
There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.
John F. Kennedy (1917 - 1963)
To win, you have to risk loss.
Then the time came when the risk it took to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Anaïs Nin (1903 - 1977)
One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.
Andre Gide (1869 - 1951)
