Just Something to Share

{ Feel good read of the day? Brought some funny sort of warm fuzzy feeling. }
To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out for another is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas,your dreams,before a 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.
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing and is nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow but they cannot learn, feel,change,grow,love or live.
Only a person who risks is free.

Life is too short. Risk it. Carpe diem. Cliche-ish I know, but they are bound to have at least some basis of truth.
