A Quote by Paulo Coelho on miracle, life, risks, and risking

You have to take risks, he said. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.

A Quote by William Arthur Ward on love, light, courage, risks, opportunities, and growth

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 feelings is to risk revealing your true self.
To place you ideas, your dreams, before a crowd
Is to risk rejection.
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk disappointment.
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard
In life is to risk nothing.
Those who risk nothing, do nothing, have nothing,
And become nothing.
They may avoid present suffering and sorrow, but they
Will not learn, feel, change, grow, love, or live.
Chained by their fear, they are slaves who have forfeited
Their freedom.
Only a person who risks is free.
The pessimist complains about the wind;
The optimist expects it to change;
And the realist adjusts the sails.

Is fear preventing you from taking a necessary risk today?

William Arthur Ward

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on risks and business

Embrace opportunities with limited downside, unlimited upside.  The best deals are those where your risk of loss is predictable and fixed if things go wrong, while your potential gains are enormous if things go right.  Take such deals whenever you can get them if the odds of success are halfway decent.

A Quote by Steve Pavlina on risks and business

Fail your way forward.  Recognize that Ready, fire, aim is superior to ready, aim, aim, aim.  Straightforward trial and error produces better results than endless vacillating.  If you’re afraid to make decisions and act on them in the face of ambiguity and uncertainty, get a job.  Failure’s lessons are essential to success.

A Quote by Steve Case on america, entrepreneurship, and risks

I find it interesting that in America, even though most people are more optimistic and most people around the world do view America as the city on the hill and more entrepreneurial and more risk taking and less traditional, still in America most people don't take risks, and most people are pretty traditional. It's actually a relatively small number of people that really are those risk takers, and a relatively small number of people that end up really having an impact on the world, and it doesn't take a lot of people. It just takes a few people who really care and stick with it, and that I think is what America is about.

A Quote by John F. Kennedy on action, apathy, and risks

There are costs and risks to a program of action, but they are far less than the long range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.

A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on love, risk, risks, nothing, suffering, learn, grow, and live

The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live.

A Quote by George Lucas on love, passion, risk, risks, risky, overcome, challenge, and obstacles

You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you're doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle.

George Lucas
