Risk quotes
Risk
During the first period of a man's life, the danger is not to take the risk.

- Kierkegaard, S°ren
The married are those who have taken the terrible risk of intimacy and, having taken it, know life without intimacy to be impossible.

- Carolyn Heilbrun
To believe in something not yet proved and to underwrite it with our lives: it is the only way we can leave the future open. Man, surrounded by facts, permitting himself no surmise, no intuitive flash, no great hypothesis, no risk, is in a locked cell. Ignorance cannot seal the mind and imagination more surely.

- Smith, Lillian
Man is so muddled, so dependent on the things immediately before his eyes, that every day even the most submissive believer can be seen to risk the torments of the afterlife for the smallest pleasure.

- Maistre, Joseph De
In America any boy may become President and I suppose it's just one of the risks he takes.

- Adlai E. Stevenson Jr.
The butterfly's attractiveness derives not only from colors and symmetry: deeper motives contribute to it. We would not think them so beautiful if they did not fly, or if they flew straight and briskly like bees, or if they stung, or above all if they did not enact the perturbing mystery of metamorphosis: the latter assumes in our eyes the value of a badly decoded message, a symbol, a sign.

- Levi, Primo
One should never risk a joke, even of the mildest and most unexceptional charters, except among people of culture and wit.

- La Bruyere, Jean De
Happy are those who dare courageously to defend what they love.

- Ovid
If you don't fail now and again, it's a sign you're playing it safe.

- Allen, Woody
The poor man who enters into a partnership with one who is rich makes a risky venture.

- Plautus, Titus Maccius
There's no reward in life without risk.

- Farber, Barry J.
No man is worth his salt who is not ready at all times to risk his well-being, to risk his body, to risk his life, in a great cause.

- Roosevelt, Theodore
Audacity augments courage; hesitation, fear.

- Syrus, Publilius
Success tends to go not to the person who is error-free, because he also tends to be risk-averse. Rather it goes to the person who recognizes that life is pretty much a percentage business. It isn't making mistakes that's critical; it's correcting them and getting on with the principal task.

- Rumsfeld, Donald
It is not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause. Who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

- Roosevelt, Theodore
Our lives improve only when we take chances - and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.

- Walter Anderson
It is better to risk saving a guilty person than to condemn an innocent one.

- Voltaire
Most people would rather be certain they're miserable than risk being happy.

- Robert Anthony
Some people prefer to keep their foot in a bog so they don't risk falling over.

- Shaw, P.K.
There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.

- John F. Kennedy
