To save oneself, one must take risks and struggle.

If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.
Others attempt to live cautiously in the safety of established patterns. They do not feel fulfilled, yet they have found a formula not of success (whatever that is), but of avoiding failure. This is the living death -- when security becomes the overwhelming consideration.
Risk is essential. There is not growth of inspiration in staying within what is safe and comfortable. Once you find out what you do best, why not try something else?
The policy of being too cautious is the greatest risk of all.
If we are intended for great ends, we are called to great hazards.
Every noble acquisition is attended with its risks; he who fears to encounter the one must not expect to obtain the other.
Risk more than others think is safe. Care more than others think is wise. Dream more than others think is practical. Expect more than others think is possible.
Risk! Risk Anything! Care no more for the opinion of others, for those other voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.
People that are orthodox when they are young are in danger of being middle-aged all their lives.
What kind of man would live where there is no daring? I don't believe in taking foolish chances but nothing can be accomplished without taking any chance at all.
We must risk going too far to discover just how far we can go.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
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.
If your life is free of failures, you're not taking enough risks.
It is better to err on the side of daring than the side of caution.
Let a man who has to make his fortune in life remember this maxim: Attacking is the only secret. Dare and the world yields, or if it beats you sometimes, dare it again and you will succeed.
If you are never scared, embarrassed, or hurt, it means you never take chances.
Don't listen to those who say, you taking too big a chance. Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today. Most important, don't listen when the little voice of fear inside you rears its ugly head and says. they all smarter than you out there. They're more talented, they're taller, blonder, prettier, luckier, and they have connections. I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you, not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity, and cooperation with others, but with the strength of conviction that you can move others by your own efforts, and do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live, the chances are you'll be a person worthy of your own respects.
When you play it too safe, you're taking the biggest risk of your life. Time is the only wealth we're given.
The path is smooth that leadeth on to danger.
We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.
If you want to achieve a high goal, you're going to have to take some chances.
Take the course opposite to custom and you will almost always do well.
If the creator had a purpose in equipping us with a neck, he surely meant us to stick it out.
Entrepreneurs are risk takers, willing to roll the dice with their money or reputation on the line in support of an idea or enterprise. They willingly assume responsibility for the success or failure of a venture and are answerable for all its facets. The buck not only stops at their desks, it starts there too.
During the first period of a man's life, the danger is not to take the risk.
Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.
Playing safe is probably the most unsafe thing in the world. You cannot stand still. You must go forward.
Play the game for more than you can afford to lose... only then will you learn the game.
No crime is so great as daring to excel.
We don't grow unless we take risks. Any successful company is riddled with failures.
Living at risk is jumping off the cliff and building your wings on the way down
All serious daring starts from within.
Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself.
To win without risk is to triumph without glory.
In order to conquer, what we need is to dare, still to dare, and always to dare.
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go.
To win you have to risk loss.
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.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
The trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
Do you want to be safe and good, or do you want to take a chance and be great?
It is playing safe that we create a world of utmost insecurity.
It is true that when we take chances, we stand to lose. But it is also true that we will never win anything if we never even enter the game. Lucky people are aware of the possibility of losing, and indeed they may lose often. But since the chances they take are small, the losses tend to be small. By being willing to accept small losses, they put themselves in position to make large gains.
You'll always miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
There's no reward in life without risk.
It is easy to be brave when far away from danger.
