Risk quotes page 2

I've always taken risks and never worried what the world might really think of me.
Cher

It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have never been before. To test your
limits. To break through barriers. And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight
inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Anais Nin

There are two types of risk in life: the danger of trying and danger of not trying. That is to
say, there is always risk, no matter how you may try to avoid it or protect yourself. Let's say
you are interested in dating someone. It's a gamble just to call and ask the person out. You
might be turned down. But what if you don't try? After all, this wonderful person might say
yes.
Nick Vujicic

It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance. It is the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance. It is the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give.
And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live.
Bette Midler

It is only by risking our persons from one hour to another that we live at all. And often
enough our faith beforehand in an uncertified result is the only thing that makes the result
come true.
William James

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
T. S. Eliot

During the first period of a man's life the greatest danger is not to take the risk.
Soren Kierkegaard

Erica Jong

Often the difference between a successful man and a failure is not one's better abilities
or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on his ideas, to take a calculated risk,
and to act.
Maxwell Maltz

Life, like poker, has an element of risk. It shouldn't be avoided. It should be faced.
Edward Norton

High Walpole

If you risk nothing, then you risk everything.
Geena Davis

I've been popular and unpopular, successful and unsuccessful, loved and loathed and I know
how meaningless it all is. Therefore, I feel free to take whatever risks I want.
Madonna

All men's gains are the fruit of venturing.
Herodotus

The only safe thing is to take a chance. Play safe and you are dead. Taking risks is the
essence of good work, and the difference between safe and bold can only be defined by
yourself since no one else knows for what you are hoping when you embark on anything.
Mike Nichols

Risk is what separates the good part of life from the tedium.
Jimmy Zero

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.
Robert F. Kennedy

Progress always involves risk; you can't steal second base and keep your foot on first base.
Frederick Wilcox

The way to develop self-confidence is to do the thing you fear and get a record of
successful experiences behind you. Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice;
it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
William Jennings Bryan

During the first period of a man's life the greatest danger is not to take the risk.
Soren Kierkegaard

To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself.
Soren Kierkegaard

A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.
John A. Shedd

Yes, risk-taking is inherently failure-prone. Otherwise, it would be called sure-thing-taking.
Tim McMahon

Alfred Adler
