"Risks", by Commonplace Blogs.

Though caution and common sense are certainly important, sometimes a risk is called for.
If you laugh, you risk appearing a fool.
If you weep, you risk appearing sentimental.
Reaching out for another is risking involvement.
Exposing feelings is risking revealing your true self.
Placing your ideas, your dreams, before a crowd is risking rejection.
Loving is risking not being loved in return.
Living itself carries with it the risk of dying.
Hoping is risking disappointment.
Trying is risking failure.
Nevertheless, risks must be taken, because the greatest hazard, pitfall, and danger in life is to risk nothing. If a person risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, that person become nothing. He may avoid present suffering and sorrow, but he will not learn, feel, change, grow, love, or live. Chained by his fear, he is a slave who has forfeited his freedom. Only that person who dares, who risks, is free.

--> Submeter-se ao risco é permitir-se ao grande mistério da vida.

Stay beautiful!
