No act of knowledge acquisition is entirely without risk.
Alex Morritt
Whoever perceives that robots and artificial intelligence are merely here to serve humanity, think again. With virtual domestic assistants and driverless cars just the latest in a growing list of applications, it is we humans who risk becoming dumbed down and ultimately subservient to machines.
Alex Staniforth
Playing it safe might not have hurt anyone, but it wouldn't have inspired many, either.
Amit Kalantri
People wishes their friends to be in politics, but their sons in professions.
Anne Rice
Very few beings really seek knowledge in this world. Mortal or immortal, few really ask. On the contrary, they try to wring from the unknown the answers they have already shaped in their own minds -- justifications, confirmations, forms of consolation without which they can't go on. To really ask is to open the door to the whirlwind. The answer may annihilate the question and the questioner.
Anthony Ryan
Love must risk all or perish.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Of course I'll hurt you. Of course you'll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.
bell hooks
The practice of love offers no place of safety. We risk loss, hurt, pain. We risk being acted upon by forces outside our control.
Cara Lockwood
True love is taking the risk that it won't be a happily-ever-after. True love is joining hands with the man who loves you for who you are, and saying, I'm not afraid to believe in you.
Catherine Louise Birmingham
Growth requires courage, risk and the willingness to go beyond fear.
Charles Dickens
You touch some of the reasons for my going, not for my staying away.
Chinonye J. Chidolue
We avoid risks in life only to die, and end up facing the greatest risk which is having lived life risking nothing at all.
Chuck Palahniuk
The only way to find true happiness is to risk being completely cut open.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
The more we construct lives that prioritize safety, the bigger the prison we construct around ourselves.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
The choice to avoid risk is the choice to avoid living, and to avoid living is one of the greatest risk of all.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
It's not about inviting great things into our lives. Rather, it's about accepting the invitation of great things to step out of our lives.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
Risk is the clue that our dreams are both real and great.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
A compass calibrated by my greed is a rather shrewd way to legitimize my agenda. However, true north on a compass such as this is a straight line to the edge of a really big cliff.
Criss Jami
You can't be a rebel without the scars that come with it. Truth is, some days scars are just as ugly as they are beautiful.
Criss Jami
Wisdom is nothing more than confirmed imagination: just because one did not study for his exam does not mean that he should leave it blank.
Criss Jami
Some concepts are so incredibly risky they take an honest fool to try to articulate them.
Criss Jami
If you're waiting until you feel talented enough to make it, you'll never make it.
Criss Jami
Have nuts and be nuts.
Criss Jami
Persistence. Perfection. Patience. Power. Prioritize your passion. It keeps you sane.
Criss Jami
The faithful man perceives nothing less than opportunity in difficulties. Flowing through his spine, faith and courage work together: Such a man does not fear losing his life, thus he will risk losing it at times in order to empower it. By this he actually values his life more than the man who fears losing his life. It is much like leaping from a window in order to avoid a fire yet in that most crucial moment knowing that God will appear to catch you.
Criss Jami
There's sometimes a tugging feeling you get to push further when you aren't being challenged enough or when things get too comfortable.
Criss Jami
Rather than swallowing our pride and simply asking what we do not know, we choose to fill in the blanks ourselves and later become humbled. Wisdom was often, in its youth, proven foolish, and ones humiliated were meant to become wise.
Criss Jami
After awhile you realize that putting your actions where your mouth is makes you less likely to have to put your money where your mouth is.
Criss Jami
If you're not a smart worker, it's about how hard you work double the amount from the heart; if you're not a hard worker, it's about how smart you work but times two from the brain.
Criss Jami
With a hint of good judgment, to fear nothing, not failure or suffering or even death, indicates that you value life the most. You live to the extreme; you push limits; you spend your time building legacies. Those do not die.
Criss Jami
In order to share one's true brilliance one initially has to risk looking like a fool: genius is like a wheel that spins so fast, it at first glance appears to be sitting still.
Criss Jami
Oh I know it's cliché but yeah they say that great men make it in-To places few others who even do take the risk've ever been
Dean Koontz
Every expression of desired friendship has potential bite. Every smile reveals the teeth.
Debasish Mridha
Your courage to take a risk and your ability to accept responsibility will define you.
Dennis Sharpe
Because what's lifeWithout happinessAnd where's happinessWithout risk
Dragos Bratasanu
With every dream and with every love, you have to die to the old, and be reborn to the new. You must leave what you know behind, and surrender to the unknown.
Dragos Bratasanu
Fear is not the end. But only a transition.
Drew Barrymore
If you don't take risks, you'll have a wasted soul.
Elaine May
The only safe thing is to take a chance.
Ellen Rowland
We only have one life (unless you're a cat or a Buddhist) and it's often dictated to us by what society tells us we should do. So we normalize and accept the paradox. We glamorize busy, but long to take a breath. We praise fat pay checks, but forget to be generous. We flaunt accumulation, but don't use what we have. We value our diplomas, but forget how to be curious. We push a button on a treadmill that doesn't take us anywhere as we look out at the park across the street.
Erica Jong
Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
Erin Jamison
He reached out and intertwined our hands. Gently urging me forward he whispered, Have I lost you love?
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Not until your heart and mind comes into a total agreement for the approval of your true purpose on earth, you shall least unleash your full energy and true strength to accomplish your true mission with enthusiasm and full tenacity.
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
The uncertainties in life are so uncertain for us to determine the kind woe we shall be entangled in in the next future. When you stay dormant, your life is at risk; when you dare to take a step, you take a step to take a risk. We have a choice. Yes! a choice to choose to dare to get to our real reasons on earth or to choose to live in mediocrity and conformity, but, we ought to note that, it is riskier to risk nothing when the life we live is always at risk.
People who live life in fear of taking risks die without living it.
Friedrich Schiller
To save all we must risk all.
Gayle Forman
Love is not something you protect. It's something you risk.
Godspower Oparaugo
Risk is one of the qualities of any good decision. This is so because, decision itself is a risk. Therefore, making a decision literally means, taking a risk... In tracing the histories of successful men and women, the first thing to notice in their lives is risk.
Gwenda Bond
We dropped our hands, both embarrassed by the sincerity of the moment. But I was learning, Sometimes you had to put it all out there, no matter how hard it felt to do so. When the people in your life were worth it, so was the risk.
Helen Keller
A bend in the road is not the end of the road…Unless you fail to make the turn.
Hunter S. Thompson
So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders do what is uncomfortable but helpful. They run away from the comfort that doesn't produce any help for the world.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you are trying to look clean, neat and avoid casting your nets in trouble waters, you will catch no fish.
Israelmore Ayivor
People who swim very well in troubled waters are respected and celebrated than those who swim excellently in calm waters.
Israelmore Ayivor
Every great leader once fell down from a tall ladder. You don't become a star until you get the scar. Take that risk now.
Israelmore Ayivor
To become a better you, hurry up and take risks.
Israelmore Ayivor
Work hard and take risks. Try it before you confirm it is difficult!
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders are interested in gains. However, they acknowledge that there is no gain without pain. They embrace the pain.
Israelmore Ayivor
The desire to swim in deeper waters is what gives a greater experience. Nothing new comes out of being ordinary. Leaders take risks.
Israelmore Ayivor
Risks may make you win, or they will make you learn. Either of the benefits is worth daring for.
Israelmore Ayivor
Clarity repositions you to quit nice activities that take you nowhere in order to pursue risky tasks that take you somewhere.
Israelmore Ayivor
To become a better you, dare to take calculated risks and overcome your limitations. Your scars can make you a star, but you have to decide.
Israelmore Ayivor
You can't gather much if you won't go on risk expedition. Leaders never fear the thorns; they'll still go in for the beautiful roses no matter the number of pricks they'll get.
Iyanla Vanzant
If you are afraid to take a chance, take one anyway. What you don't do can create the same regrets as the mistakes you make.
J.E.B. Spredemann
Loving someone can be hard at times. You risk a lot when you love - your heart and soul, at the least. Love is the most important and most rewarding investment you can make in another person.
James Salter
You must go further than I did, Nedra said. You know that.Further?With your life. You must become free.She did not explain it; she could not. It was not a matter of living alone, though in her case this had been necessary. The freedom she meant was self-conquest. It was not a natural state. It was meant only for those who would risk everything for it, who were aware that without it life is only appetites until the teeth are gone.
Jennifer Coletta
I would rather listen to someone who tried and failed than someone who dreamed but never tried.
Joan Erickson
Vital lives are about action. You can't feel warmth unless you create it, can't feel delight until you play, can't know serendipity unless you risk.
John A. Shedd
A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.
John Mark Green
Opening to love will always involve risk,but a heart safe from pain is one also locked to joy.
Jon Krakauer
It is easy when you are young to believe that what you desire is no less than what you deserve, to assume that if you want something badly enough it is your God-given right to have it... I was a raw youth who mistook passion for insight and acted according to an obscure, gap-ridden logic. I thought climbing the Devil's Thumb would fix all that was wrong in my life. In the end, of course, it changed almost nothing...I came to appreciate that mountains make poor recepticles for dreams.
Joseph Campbell
The dreamer is a distinguished operatic artist, and, like all who have elected to follow, not the safely marked general highways of the day, but the adventure of the special, dimly audiblecall that comes to those whose ears are open within as well as without
Justin Wetch
I don't want safety or guarantees
Kamand Kojouri
You have already lost if you are always fearful of losing everything.
Kate Quinn
You think there are no idiots in the intelligence business, that your superiors are all brilliant men who understand the game? [...] This business is rife with idiots. They play with lives and they play badly, and when people like you die as a result, they shrug and as 'Risks have to be taken in wartime.' You'd really march yourself into a firing squad for that kind of fool?
Katherine Mansfield
Risk anything! Care no more for the opinion of others ... Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.(Journal entry, 14 October 1922)
Lailah Gifty Akita
Take risks. Whoever risk, shall know how far they can reach.
Lassie Benton (pseudonym of Elizabeth Appell)
And the day came when the risk to remain closed in a bud became more painful that the risk it took to blossom. [likely not Anaïs Nin; look under Disputed quotes on the Wikiquote page for her]
Lisa Kleypas
The question, love, is whether you want me enough to take the risk.
Maggie Stiefvater
My whole life, I had thought that my story was, again and again: Once upon a time, there was a boy, and he had to risk everything to keep what he loved. But really, the story was: Once upon a time, there was a boy, and his fear ate him alive.
Mandy Hale
Better to put your heart on the line, risk everything, and walk away with nothing than play it safe. Love is a lot of things, but safe isn't one of them.
Mark Batterson
I don't know about you, but I want God to reveal the second step before I take the first step of faith. But I've discovered that if I don't take the first step, God generally won't reveal the next step...Most of us will only follow Christ to the point of precedence -- the place where we have been before. But ...If you want God to do something new, you cannot keep doing what you've always done. You've got to push past the fear of the unknown. You've got to do something different.
Mark Batterson
There are spiritual gifts like mercy, faith, or generosity that enable people to set the standard, so to speak. But just because you don't have that spiritual gift doesn't mean you aren't held to any standard at all. Even if you aren't gifted in that way, you're still called to live mercifully, faithfully, and generously. You might not set the standard, but you need to meet the standard. There is a baseline that all of us are called to. When the opportunity presents itself, we need to show mercy, exercise faith, and give generously. In the same sense, all of us are called to take risks. If it doesn't involve risk, it doesn't exercise faith.
Mark Batterson
Nine times out of ten, failure is resorting to Plan B when Plan A gets too risky, too costly, or too difficult. That's why most people are living their Plan B. They didn't burn the ships. Plan A people don't have a Plan B...There are moments in life when we need to burn the ships to our past. We do so by making a defining decision that will eliminate the possibility of sailing back to the old world we left behind. You burn the ships named Past Failure and Past Success. You burn the ship named Bad Habit. You burn the ship named Regret. You burn the ship named Guilt. You burn the ship named My Old Way of Life.
Martha Brockenbrough
Life is a temporary condition, Henry. And it's uncertain. That's why you have to seize chances when you find them. Pursue what you want. Take risks. Live, love...all of it. Every last one of us is going to die, but if we don't live as we truly want, if we're not with the one we want to be with, we're dead already.
Meredith Ann Pierce
I'll not let the pair of you charge boldly into wolves' teeth without me alongside
Michael Connelly
You know what my father said about innocent clients? ... He said the scariest client a lawyer will ever have is an innocent client. Because if you fuck up and he goes to prison, it'll scar you for life ... He said there is no in-between with an innocent client. No negotiation, no plea bargain, no middle ground. There's only one verdict. You have to put an NG up on the scoreboard. There's no other verdict but not guilty.Levin nodded thoughtfully.The bottom line was my old man was a damn good lawyer and he didn't like having innocent clients, I said. I'm not sure I do, either.
Michael Connelly
There is no client as scary as an innocent man.J. Michael Haller, Criminal Defense Attorney, Los Angeles, 1962.
The greatest risk to man is not that he aims too high and misses, but that he aims too low and hits.
Mike Norton
Risk is the factor of a stratagem measured by what man is powerless to control.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Some people will each start investing more of their salary on 'their' house and spending less of it on 'their' car or cars only when they start being able to take 'their' house to work, funerals, weddings, etc.
Niccolo Machiavelli
Never was anything great achieved without danger.
Nikki Rowe
To be a seed in a world, is to remain safe almost unharmed living within a shell to protect you from the exterior world, what a risk it was to chose to bud and prosper into a little sprout unaware of what you will become, yet fearlessly ready to trust the process along the way.
Patrick Overton
When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for you to stand upon or you will be taught to fly.
Paul Theroux
The wish to travel seems to me characteristically human: the desire to move, to satisfy your curiosity or ease your fears, to change the circumstances of your life, to be a stranger, to make a friend, to experience an exotic landscape, to risk the unknown..
Rachel Naomi Remen
In avoiding all pain and seeking comfort at all cost, we may be left without intimacy or compassion; in rejecting change and risk we often cheat ourselves of the quest; in denying our suffering we may never know our strength or our greatness.
Robert T. Kiyosaki
In school we learn that mistakes are bad, and we are punished for making them. Yet, if you look at the way humans are designed to learn, we learn by making mistakes. We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk.
Robin Hobb's strange, isn't it, how you don't know how big a part of you someone is until they're threatened? And then you think you can't possibly go on if something happens to them, but the most frightening part is that, actually, you will go on, you'll have to go on, with them or without them. There's just no telling what you'll become
Roy T. Bennett
Failure is a bend in the road, not the end of the road. Learn from failure and keep moving forward.
Sabrina Jeffries
Every person, young or old, risks the possibility of their life not turning out as planned. Especially when it comes to marriage. They might find they aren't suited for marriage after all. Or their spouses might die of an early illness. Taking a risk on another person is what marriage is all about.
Sam Childers
Since that day there is nothing anyone could ever say to convince me that one person cannot change a nation. One person can do unbelievable things. All it takes is that one person who's willing to risk everything to make it happen.
Santiago Ramón y Cajal
Our novice runs the risk of failure without additional traits: a strong inclination toward originality, a taste for research, and a desire to experience the incomparable gratification associated with the act of discovery itself.
Sarah Addison Allen
Happiness is a risk. If you're not a little scared, then you're not doing it right.
Sarah Morgan
You plan every step of your life, but sometimes you have to let life happen. Change is always unsettling, sometimes scary, but you have to let go. Take a risk. Risk can be fun.
Stephanie Morrill
To love anyone is to risk.
Steve Goodier
I have not always chosen the safest path. I've made my mistakes, plenty of them. I sometimes jump too soon and fail to appreciate the consequences. But I've learned something important along the way: I've learned to heed the call of my heart. I've learned that the safest path is not always the best path and I've learned that the voice of fear is not always to be trusted.
Steven James
Change is not always a good thing. What I need is not change from one thing to another but transformation from who I am into who I was meant to become. Only when God's transforming power touches me can I begin to live the simpler, freer, fresher, more creative, more patient, more passionate, more sacrificial, riskier, rawer, more real, more love-driven life God intended for me all along. That transformation is what awaits all who dare to enter the story of God. As Paul wrote, 'Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think' (Romans 12:2)
Steven Magee
We live in a blatantly corrupt world and smart people engage in the wise practice of risk management.
Stuart Dybek
I recalled the afternoon when the two of us stood beating erasers, and Camille confided that she'd done penance for stories - stories that I'll never know if she wrote or only imagined writing. She'd wanted me to tell her a secret from my dreams, a secret from my dreams I hadn't had as yet, and so I didn't quite understand what she was after.It's about feeling, Camille had insisted.I didn't understand then that she was talking about risk.

Our freedoms are vanishing. If you do not get active to take a stand now against all that is wrong while we still can, then maybe one of your children may elect to do so in the future, when it will be far more riskier

Sometimes to change a situation you are in requires you to take a giant leap. But, you won't be able to fly unless you are willing to transform.

Tarun Sharma
The more risk you can take upfront in life, the better off you will be later.
Theodore Roosevelt
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.
Thomas Moore
We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.
Thomas Henry Huxley
Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever and to whatever abysses nature leads, or you shall learn nothing. I have only begun to learn content and peace of mind since I have resolved at all risks to do this.

William Faulkner
You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.
William S. Burroughs
There is no intensity of love or feeling that does not involve the risk of crippling hurt. It is a duty to take this risk, to love and feel without defense or reserve.
