The word 'risk' derives from the early Italian risicare, which means 'to dare'. In this sense, risk is a choice rather than a fate. The actions we dare to take, which depend on how free we are to make choices, are what the story of risk is all about. And that story helps define what it means to be a human being.
Blind risk is stupid, but calculated risks are worth taking.
If you take risks, you may fail. But if you do not take risks, you will surely fail. The greatest risk of all is to do nothing.
risk is everywhere and we all do take risk everyday, knowingly or unknowingly.Ordinary risk produces ordinary men and extraordinary risk equals extraordinary men. The unique line of boundary between the ordinary and the extraordinary is the risk they both take. Great and extraordinary people patiently take a visionary, calculated and an avant-garde risk regardless of the susurrant and cacophonic call of the masses to retreat. They fall, they learn and they move. Without taking a thoughtful risk, we risk our lives unthoughtfully each day
A risk is a risk because it's avoidable.
If you risk nothing, then you risk everything.
We avoid risks in life only to die, and end up facing the greatest risk which is having lived life risking nothing at all.
