Famous quotes containing the word risks:

    The question is whether personal freedom is worth the terrible effort, the never-lifted burden and risks of self-reliance.
    Rose Wilder Lane (1886–1968)

    If the children and youth of a nation are afforded opportunity to develop their capacities to the fullest, if they are given the knowledge to understand the world and the wisdom to change it, then the prospects for the future are bright. In contrast, a society which neglects its children, however well it may function in other respects, risks eventual disorganization and demise.
    Urie Bronfenbrenner (b. 1917)

    The amount of it is, if a man is alive, there is always danger that he may die, though the danger must be allowed to be less in proportion as he is dead-and-alive to begin with. A man sits as many risks as he runs.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
