Saturday Inspiration

“ 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 yourself
To place your ideas, your dreams, before a 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 failure
But risks must be taken
Because the great hazard in life is to risk nothing
If you risk nothing and do nothing, you dull your spirit
You may avoid suffering and sorrow
But you cannot learn, feel, change, grow, love and live
Chained by your attitude, you are a slave
You have forfeited your freedom
Only if you risk are you free!”

-- TS Eliot, 1888-1965
