"If you've never failed, you've never lived."

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 true self;
  To place your ideas, your dreams before the 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 risk 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;
  He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love and live;
  Chained by his certitudes, he is a slave and has forfeited freedom'
  Only a person who risks is free.

What are you waiting for?
