Inspiring Quotes of the Week...
Commentary by Peter Shepherd
A no-risk person achieves little and is a stranger to fulfillment. That's too high a price.
If you don't try you'll never know - the real risk is doing nothing. As Mark Zuckerberg says, "In a world that is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks."
If you insist on being the same as everyone else, what you can achieve is limited. As Mary Lou Cook said, "Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun."
And Rick Benetrau: "You cannot climb a mountain if you will not risk a fall."

'To Risk' by William Arthur Ward
To laugh is to risk appearing a fool,
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.

To hope is to risk despair,
To try is to risk failure.

The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing.
He may avoid suffering and sorrow,
But he cannot learn, feel, change, grow, or live.
Chained by his servitude, he is a slave who has forfeited all freedom.
Only a person who takes risks is FREE.
The pessimist complains about the wind;
The optimist expects it to change;
And the realist adjusts the sails.
