Risky Inspiration

Here are a few inspiring thoughts on risk, to go with my last post:

You'll always miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
- Wayne Gretzky

He who risks and fails can be forgiven. He who never risks and never fails is a failure in his whole being.
- Paul Tillich

The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live.
- Leo F. Buscaglia

Prudence keeps life safe, but does not often make it happy.
- Samuel Johnson

The more chance there is of stubbing your toe, the more chance you have of stepping into success.
- Author Unknown

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

Progress always involves risks. You can't steal second base and keep your foot on first.
- Frederick B. Wilcox

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

Why not go out on a limb? Isn't that where the fruit is?
- Frank Scully
