To hope is to risk despair, and to try is to risk failure. But risk must be taken, because the greatest risk in life is to risk nothing. The person who risk 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. Chained by his certitudes, he's a slave. He forfeited his freedom. Only the person who risks is truly free.
