Top Not Taking Risks Quotes

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Alan Lightman

Thus, in this world of brief scenes from the future, few risks are taken. Those who have seen the future do not need to take risks, and those who have not yet seen the future wait for their visions without taking risks. — Alan Lightman

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Steven Bochco

When all of your decisions are based on economics, you end up with a sameness of vision. You're not taking the risks, you're not exploiting the passions of your creators. You're manufacturing product for a huge vending machine. — Steven Bochco

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Maggie Stiefvater

Taking risks is not being suicidal. Otherwise, skydivers need serious help. — Maggie Stiefvater

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Sharon Lawrence

You always get things that teach you and steps to grow, but there is a confidence that is gained and a deep understanding of what it means to be supported by your knowledge - not by some team that is there to create confidence; it is there within you. That takes time. That takes teachers. That takes taking risks. — Sharon Lawrence

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Steve Case

You can be entrepreneurial even if you don't want to be in business. You can be a social entrepreneur focused on the not-for-profit sector. You can be an agriculture entrepreneur if you want to change how people think about farming. You can be a policy entrepreneur if you want to go into government. The idea of an entrepreneur is really thinking out of the box and taking risks and stepping up to major challenges. — Steve Case

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Daniel Kahneman

Multiple international bodies have specified that the absence of scientific evidence of potential damage is not sufficient justification for taking risks. As the jurist Cass Sunstein points out, the precautionary principle is costly, and when interpreted strictly it can be paralyzing. — Daniel Kahneman

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Dylan Callens

Marry me, Lou," Nietzsche bent down on one knee, his knees creaked. He peered over top of his glasses with a gaze of pitiful defeat. He had met his match with Lou. She was brilliant, shrewd, and brave. Taking risks that other women dare not.

"Get up, Friedrich," she responded, "You know that I won't marry you or anyone else. — Dylan Callens

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Immanuel Wallerstein

The basic question that the 'new science' raises for our balance sheet is the issue of what scientific questions have not been asked for 500 years, which scientific risks have not been pursued. It raises the question of who has decided what scientific risks were worth taking, and what have been the consequences in terms of the power structures of the world. — Immanuel Wallerstein

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Diane Frolov

I guess what I'm trying to say is I don't think you can measure life in terms of years. I think longevity doesn't necessarily have anything to do with happiness. I mean happiness comes from facing challenges and going out on a limb and taking risks. If you're not willing to take a risk for something you really care about, you might as well be dead. — Diane Frolov

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Suzy Kassem

We are taught to fear anything that can bring us closer to death - to keep us from taking huge leaps that involve risk. The only thing you should fear in this lifetime is not taking risks while you are living. I do not mean to go jump off a bridge. I mean, to go all out to reach your dreams, to dare to do things you typically would not do out of fear. Pain has a threshold and so does death. Fear neither, and never fear what has no right to be feared. — Suzy Kassem

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Doug Scott

Like it or not taking risks, by a total commitment to the mountain and the vagaries of the weather, is essential for the greater satisfaction to be derived from mountaineering. — Doug Scott

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Peter Diamandis

Large companies and government agencies have a lot to protect and therefore are not willing to take big risks. A large company taking a risk can threaten its stock price. A government agency taking a risk can threaten congressional investigation. — Peter Diamandis

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Megan McArdle

By contrast, a modern person lives surrounded by strangers who are doing things they may not understand. We cannot rely on our instincts and our relationships to keep society working. So it's more important than ever to make sure that we get the rules right. If we want our economy to grow, it means looking for ways to support experimental risk-taking by trading a little more than we may instinctively be comfortable with. It means offering big payoffs to those who are willing to take big risks but also making sure that the unlucky don't starve. In short, it means accepting that a high degree of unpredictability goes with the hunting ground. — Megan McArdle

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Daniel Lapin

We really have no choice but to pray and encourage a return to an America steeped in Judeo-Christian values. It is either that or taking our chances in a society with no values at all. For all Americans the former carries certain risks, but the latter spells certain doom. For now, we should not be deflected by theological debate from the life-saving tasks awaiting us. There is work to be done. We must ensure that America will continue to be part of God's plan for the world. — Daniel Lapin

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Rick Welts

To allow your organization the permission to fail is a very powerful thing. If we want to really be thought leaders and industry leaders, it doesn't come without taking risks. We're not afraid to take those risks that will get us to a better place. — Rick Welts

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Craig Groeschel

Not taking risks ultimately leads to failure. — Craig Groeschel

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Zig Ziglar

To reach your full potential, you have to set goals that will stretch you. You must not be afraid of taking risks. You must learn to recognize opportunities and have the courage to pursue them. You have to make better choices that will provide better results. Finally, you need to avoid the negative influences of other people and surround yourself with successful people who will encourage you to pursue your dreams. — Zig Ziglar

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Peter Barris

Risk and failure is a part of our equation, and if you are seeing too little failure, you are actually probably not taking enough risks. — Peter Barris

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Sarah Addison Allen

Happiness meant taking risks. No one had ever told Paxton that before. It was like a secret the world had been keeping from her. Paxton didn't take risks, at least not when she was sober. She knew what she was getting into before she ever committed to anything. The fact that all the changes she'd made in the past few days scared her to death had to be a good sign. — Sarah Addison Allen

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Tony Robbins

Without a vision there is no possibility of creating something larger than what al-ready exists. An entrepreneur has to be able to bring something to the table through his or her vision that is not being provided by others - a special way of meeting needs, caring for others, treating patients, or marketing. An entrepreneur must have enormous faith. Risk-taking is critical to the development of an enterprise. You will not take risks unless you have the faith to do so. — Tony Robbins

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Amy Morin

We base our decisions on emotion instead of logic. We incorrectly assume there's a direct correlation between our fear level and the risk level. But often, our emotions are just not rational. If we truly understood how to calculate risk, we'd know which risks were worth taking and we'd be a lot less fearful about taking them. WE — Amy Morin

Not Taking Risks Quotes By William D. Cohan

People are pretty simple: they do what they are rewarded for doing. If they get multimillion-dollar bonuses by taking huge risks with other people's money - as they still do - then they will continue to take those huge risks, and not give it another thought. — William D. Cohan

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Travis Pastrana

Nothing's about taking risks as much as doing stuff that other people haven't done before. Just like in racing, it's not about taking risks but trying to figure out how to be faster. — Travis Pastrana

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Gary Sinise

You've got to keep taking certain risks, because my priority is in acting, it's not in movie stardom. — Gary Sinise

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Francis Chan

Isn't the easiest thing at this point to start living in a guarded, safe, controlled way? To sop taking risks and to be ruled by our fears of what could happen? Turning inward is one way to respond; the other is to acknowledge our lack of control and reach out for God's help. IF life were stable, I'd never need God's help. Since it's not, I reach out for Him regularly. I am thankful for the unknowns and that I don't have control because it makes me run to God. — Francis Chan

Rely on T-G-E: "That's Good Enough" and T-N-M-J: "That's Not My Job!" 11. Rationalize slow growth — Donald Keough

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Drew Houston

Even if it doesn't work out, the experience is so valuable to so many employers that your worst case scenario is, 'Ok, so that was a bust, I'll get a six-figure job at whatever company.' Risk is this outmoded idea - your parents might not understand that, but taking these types of risks doesn't have a downside. — Drew Houston

Not Taking Risks Quotes By R.v.m.

There are many who live Life in Fear, without taking risks. They don't take Chances. Alas! Not only are they missing chances, they are missing Life itself! -RVM — R.v.m.

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Aniekee Tochukwu Ezekiel

If people are always comfortable with you, you're probably not telling them the whole truth. — Aniekee Tochukwu Ezekiel

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Henry Cloud

Active people make lots of mistakes, and wise ones grow from them (Hebrews 5:14). They try something, experience a limit, and adapt. They experience the depth of God's forgiveness because they do things for which they need to be forgiven. Passive people have trouble learning because they are afraid to take risks. Because of this, they also have a harder time taking charge of their lives and boundaries. God is not pleased with those who "shrink back" in passivity (Hebrews 10:38). He wants his people to participate in life with him, not wait on the sidelines. — Henry Cloud

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Anthony Liccione

The most critical risk of all, is not taking the risk if means be dangerous. — Anthony Liccione

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Richard Preston

Scientific facts are often described in textbooks as if they just sort of exist, like nickels someone picked up on the street. But science at the cutting edge, conducted by sharp minds probing deep into nature, is not about self-evident facts. It is about mystery and not knowing. It is about taking huge risks. — Richard Preston

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Mark Bowden

Soldiering was about fighting. It was about killing people before they killed you. It was about having your way by force and guile in a dangerous world, taking a shit in the woods, living in dirty, difficult conditions, enduring hardships and risks that could - and sometimes did - kill you. It was ugly work. Which is not to say that certain men didn't enjoy it, didn't live for it. Garrison was one of those men. He embraced its cruelty. He would say, this man needs to die. Just like that. Some people needed to die. — Mark Bowden

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Rebecca McNutt

People who mock incidents in history such as 9/11 or the Holocaust, referring to it all as a hoax or stirring up crazy conspiracy theories about it, should really stop and think about their words first, both because it shows flaws in logic and rationality to deny the obvious, and because to play pretend with incidents which killed innocent people, well, that's just like laughing in the face of tragedy. It's as if to say, "no, it's not horrible enough that these people were killed, oh no, we have to drag on these incidents by indulging in melodramatic fantasies!" In essence this means that those who lost loved ones not only have to live with these losses forever, they also have to live with the people who deny that any of it ever happened. It does no good to forget history or to deny it. All it does is desensitize people; it tells them that it's all just a game, which then risks the possibility of nobody taking it seriously enough to prevent something similar from happening again. — Rebecca McNutt

Not Taking Risks Quotes By David Nevins

When it comes to storytelling, not taking risks is riskier than swinging for the fences. I have very simple ambitions when it comes to taking risks in storytelling and programming. I try very hard to avoid the expected. — David Nevins

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Daniel Handler

I always think it's silly when people talk about works of culture taking risks. Because there's not any risk involved. — Daniel Handler

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Daniel Kahneman

Optimistic people play a disproportionate role in shaping our lives. Their decisions make a difference; they are inventors, entrepreneurs, political and military leaders - not average people. They got to where they are by seeking challenges and taking risks. — Daniel Kahneman

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Edward Whitacre Jr.

Be willing to step outside your comfort zone once in a while; take the risks in life that seem worth taking. The ride might not be as predictable if you'd just planted your feet and stayed put, but it will be a heck of a lot more interesting. — Edward Whitacre Jr.

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Sheryl Sandberg

Career progression often depends upon taking risks and advocating for oneself - traits that girls are discouraged from exhibiting. This may explain why girls' academic gains have not yet translated into significantly higher numbers of women in top jobs. — Sheryl Sandberg

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Syrie James

Change often brings unimagined opportunity ... If there is no struggle, there is no progress. To live in a safe cocoon- I believe that is not truly living. It is stagnation. — Syrie James

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Taylor Kitsch

I had someone very close to me say to me that hopefully I'll have many more ups and downs, not in just my career but in life. If you don't have that, you're not taking enough risks. — Taylor Kitsch

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Sabrina Jeffries

Every person, young or old, risks the possibility of their life not turning out as planned. Especially when it comes to marriage. They might find they aren't suited for marriage after all. Or their spouses might die of an early illness. Taking a risk on another person is what marriage is all about. — Sabrina Jeffries

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Paulo Coelho

I'm afraid of committing myself," she thought to herself.

"When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way."

"Don't bother trying to explain your emotions. Live everything as intensely as you can and keep whatever you felt as a gift from God. The best way to destroy the bridge between the visible and invisible is by trying to explain your emotions."

"But how will I know who my Soulmate is?" Brida felt that this was one of the most important questions she had ever asked in her life.
"By taking risks" she said to Brida. ' By risking failure, disappointment, disillusion, but never ceasing in you search for Love. As long as you keep looking, you will triumph in the end."

Nothing is completely wrong. Even a broken watch is right twice a day. — Paulo Coelho

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Rita Wilson

I do think you have to scare yourself. That's where your creativity or your growth comes from. Scaring yourself, challenging yourself, taking those risks, and not caring about what anyone thinks. — Rita Wilson

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Susan Egan

If you're not getting any bad reviews, you're not taking enough risks — Susan Egan

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Auliq Ice

Life is not so simple as you think without taking those risks, trying everything to make ends meet. — Auliq Ice

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Matt Smith

I think that every artistic venture is a risk, and it has to be that way, so you do as much preparation as you can and make that as thorough as you can possibly make it, until you turn up on set. It's about taking risks, and some might work and some might not, but that's what makes it interesting. — Matt Smith

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Dominik Garcia-Lorido

I always thought on my own that what is a huge part of being an actor, or what made me a better actor, was just really living life. Not being closed in on life, but being more open to experiences and to people and taking risks and exposing yourself to things. — Dominik Garcia-Lorido

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Robin S. Sharma

Calculated risk taking will pay huge dividends. How will you ever get to third base with one foot on second? The biggest risk is not taking risks. — Robin S. Sharma

Not Taking Risks Quotes By John James Cowperthwaite

I largely agree with those that hold that Government should not in general interfere with the course of the economy merely on the strength of its own commercial judgment. If we cannot rely on the judgment of individual businessmen, taking their own risks, we have no future anyway. — John James Cowperthwaite

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Sarah Addison Allen

Willa said happiness means taking risks. And if you're not a little scared, you're not doing it right."
That made him laugh, "If that's the case, we have nothing to worry about," he said, leaning forward to kiss her. "Let's be terrified together again. — Sarah Addison Allen

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Lauren Myracle

So you know, i'm thinking that you can either keep yourself safe and not feel anything, or you can the risk of just loving him and letting him love you." she paused. "Is he worth the risk? And if not what is? What are you willing to take risk for, Wren? — Lauren Myracle

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Jon Meacham

On Wednesday, April 9, 1969, Bush, who was just beginning his second term as a congressman, flew to see the former president at LBJ's ranch at Stonewall, Texas, about 220 miles from Houston. "Mr. President, I've still got a decision to make and I'd like your advice," Bush said. "My House seat is secure - no opposition last time - and I've got a position on Ways and Means. I don't mind taking risks, but in a few more terms, I'll have seniority on a powerful committee. I'm just not sure it's a gamble I should take, whether it's really worth it." "Son," Johnson said, "I've served in the House. And I've been privileged to serve in the Senate, too. And they're both good places to serve. So I wouldn't begin to advise you what to do, except to say this - that the difference between being a member of the Senate and a member of the House is the difference between chicken salad and chicken shit." The former president paused. "Do I make my point? — Jon Meacham

Not Taking Risks Quotes By David Murrow

Men are hard-wired for risk taking - particularly young men. The number one killer of fifteen- to twenty-four-year-old males is accidents.6 Female investors hold less risky investment portfolios than their male counterparts and generally take fewer chances with their money.
Churches need men because men are natural risk takers - and they bring that orientation into the church. Congregations that do not take risks atrophy. Jesus made it clear that risk taking is necessary to please God. In the parable of the talents, the master praises two servants who risked their assets and produced more, but he curses the servant who played it safe. He who avoids all risk is, in the words of Jesus, "wicked and lazy". — David Murrow

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Roger Bannister

Sport is not about being wrapped up in cotton wool. Sport as about adapting to the unexpected and being able to modify plans at the last minute. Sport, like all life, is about taking risks. — Roger Bannister

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Jonathan Glazer

I want to change things with everything I do, not for the sake of changing things, but for the sake of taking greater and greater risks, or how minimalist I might be able to be, or how I can involve elements or ingredients in music videos that are not musical, for instance. — Jonathan Glazer

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Linus Torvalds

Finnish companies tend to be very traditional, not taking many risks. Silicon Valley is completely different: people here really live on the edge. — Linus Torvalds

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Scott Berkun

Commit yourself to taking enough risks that you will fail some of the time. If you're not failing, we're not doing something sufficiently difficult or creative. — Scott Berkun

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Scott Spencer

It was only vanity and discouragement that sometimes made me feel alone with my endless love, but now that I was taking one of the risks my heart had urged upon me I could also feel I was not alone. If endless love was a dream, then it was a dream we all shared, even more than we all shared the dream of never dying or of traveling through time, and if anything set me apart it was not my impulses but my stubbornness, my willingness to take the dream past what had been agreed upon as the reasonable limits, to declare that this dream was not a feverish trick of the mind but was an actuality at least as real as that other, thinner, more unhappy illusion we call normal life. After all, the intimations of endless love were the same now as they were thousands of years before, while normal life had changed a thousand times and in a thousand different ways. Which then, was more real? — Scott Spencer

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Alain Robert

I was not willing to give up because I was born to like taking risks and that is my way of life. — Alain Robert

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Paulo Coelho

People always judge others by taking as a model their own limitations, and other people's opinions are often full of prejudice and fear. Join with all those who experiment, take risks, fall, get hurt and then take more risks. Stay away from those who affirm truths, who criticise those who do not think like them, people who have never once taken a step unless they were sure they would be respected for doing so, and who prefer certainties to doubts. — Paulo Coelho

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Robert F. Engle

There are a lot of ways that investment banking models work, but these risks are not internalized by the people that are taking them. — Robert F. Engle

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Anne Heche

Independent film is taking risks in all areas. It's not just about complicated women. — Anne Heche

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Brian Blessed

My parents taught me honesty, truth, compassion, kindness and how to care for people. Also, they encouraged me to take risks, to boldly go. They taught me that the greatest danger in life is not taking the adventure. — Brian Blessed

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Shakti Gawain

Be willing to take some risks in the areas of work and money. If we do only what we think we should do in order to make money and be secure, we won't listen to the intuitive voice that tells us to try something new, to be more creative, or to move on to the next step on our path. When we listen to our intuition and take some risks, we are not alone. The universe will support us and reward us for taking risks on its behalf! — Shakti Gawain

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Dan Pearce

I am not where I am because of luck. I am where I am because I took risks others weren't willing to take. The world rewards the risk takers. It always has. It always will. — Dan Pearce

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Lou Ferrigno

Believing in myself and not to be afraid of taking any risks. I have to be better than the average person to succeed. That's why I chose bodybuilding. If I became a world champion, if I could win admiration from my peers, I could do anything. — Lou Ferrigno

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Jay Chiat

I'm uncomfortable when I'm comfortable. I have to start something new-in the agency or in my personal life-every two years or so. Taking risks gives me energy. I can't help it, it's my personality. I'd like to think it's not really a compulsion toward high risks, but the spirit of an entrepreneur. — Jay Chiat

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Jeff Davidson

Since the 1980s, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) has been on the rise, not just among children, but now among the adult population as well.
The sudden rise of adult ADD, while it may have genetic components, certainly receives a major boost from our kinetic, hyper-speed, information-bombarded society. Victims of adult ADD are likely to initiate more tasks and projects that they'll ever finish, get bored easily, seek thrills readily, have a propensity to be late while loathing having to wait, and not be averse to taking foolish risks. — Jeff Davidson

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Sheila Heti

Sholem [a painter] was saying that freedom, for him, is having the technical facility to be able to execute whatever he wants, just whatever image he has in his mind. But that's not freedom! That's control, or power. Whereas I think Margaux understands freedom to be the freedom to take risks, the freedom to do something bad or appear foolish. To not recognize that difference is a pretty big thing. [ ... ]
"It's like with improv," Misha said. "True improv is about surprising yourself
but most people won't improvise truthfully. They're afraid. What they do is pull from their bag of tricks. They take what they already know how to do and apply it to the present situation. But that's cheating! And cheating's bad for an artist. It's bad in life
but it's really bad in art." -p.20-1, How Should A Person Be — Sheila Heti

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Zac Posen

Taking sartorial risks and not following other people is what makes you stand out. — Zac Posen

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Amy Poehler

Great people do things before they're ready. They do things before they know they can do it. Doing what you're afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that- that's what life is. You might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that's really special and if you're not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself — Amy Poehler

Not Taking Risks Quotes By David Oakes

I'm not actually a psychopath. I don't look evil. People don't normally want to put me in the same kind of things afterward, so I'm looking forward to people taking a few risks and hopefully seeing me as the character actor that I think I am. — David Oakes

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Guy Laliberte

I don't believe in pitfalls. I believe in taking risks and not doing the same thing twice. — Guy Laliberte

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Mark Zuckerberg

The biggest risk is not taking any risk ... In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks. — Mark Zuckerberg

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Hilary Swank

You're not always going to hit the bull's-eye. I'm going to make movies that work and I'm going to make movies that don't work, and that's just a part of being creative. Because really, I think if you're taking risks and you're pushing yourself and you're doing things that scare you, you are going to fall on your face, and it's not always going to work. — Hilary Swank

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Paul Buchheit

If everything you do works, then you're not taking many risks and probably aren't innovating either. — Paul Buchheit

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Dana Stabenow

She raised her head again. "Aren't you supposed to come over all manly man and forbid the little lady from taking such risks with her fragile self?"
"I like my balls right where they are," he said, and she laughed and put her head back down on his chest.
Kate Shugak to Jim Chopin
Though Not Dead — Dana Stabenow

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Joan Osborne

Being an artist is not exactly the most universally respected, or secure thing to do with your life. It can be frightening and you can feel that you're taking a lot of risks just with your own life, and your family's security. But the rewards outweigh those things. — Joan Osborne

Not Taking Risks Quotes By David Pierce

Specifically, being impressed with God means that you are: Not limited by human obstacles Not limited by conventional thinking Taking risks to share Christ Changing the scene and not becoming like the scene Being impressed with God and not the scene means looking to Him for what's possible. This is incredibly freeing, because the Bible says that with God, nothing is impossible. Do you really believe that? — David Pierce

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Walter Munk

More and more students are playing it safe and not taking any risks. You might not succeed, but that's just part of the game. — Walter Munk

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Brian Henson

I think in a creative effort, in any creative effort, you need to, people need to be able to be taking risks and if it turns out to be a mistake, if it turns out not to have been the right choice, that should be applauded, you know, by everybody, and it will come up with another plan. — Brian Henson

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Gregor Collins

Stupidity is actually in a way the mark of intelligence - if you're not doing stupid things that defy logic you're probably not taking enough risks. — Gregor Collins

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Karen Witemeyer

Jacob remained by Mollie's side throughout the night, clinging to her hand as well as to her vow. She wasn't going to leave him. She'd given her word, and Mollie never broke a promise. He prayed. He tended the cuts she'd suffered from the blackberry brambles when she'd fallen. The vines had grown entangled within a cedar's branches, and as best he could tell, she'd climbed the tree in order to reach the ripe berries that other pickers had left behind. Unfortunately, the limb she'd shimmied out on had been weak and had broken beneath her weight. "You know, this tree climbing and dropping through busted church floors is going to have to stop after we're married. My heart won't be able to take the stress." He smiled and ran the back of his finger down the smooth line of her cheek. "Not that I expect any dictate I give you to have much effect. My only hope is that you'll grow to care enough about me that you'll take pity on me and cease taking unnecessary risks with your life. — Karen Witemeyer

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Richard Rhodes

Consider Rutherford playing his thoroughly unlikely hunch about alpha backscattering, Heisenberg remembering an obscure remark of Einstein's and concluding that nature only performed in consonance with his mathematics, Lawrence flipping compulsively through obscure foreign journals: Were this thinking not in the framework of scientific work, it would be considered paranoid. In scientific work, creative thinking demands seeing things not seen previously, or in ways not previously imagined; and this necessitates jumping off from "normal" positions, and taking risks by departing from reality. — Richard Rhodes

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Peter McWilliams

The irony is that the person not taking risks feels the same amount of fear as the person who regularly takes risks. — Peter McWilliams

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Taylor Kitsch

I want to be scared. I want to keep taking insane risks. I want to be scared because you're going to grow through that whether you want to or not. I don't want to play the same guy. I want to keep throwing curveballs to you guys and keep telling stories. — Taylor Kitsch

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Richard Branson

If you get into entrepreneurshi p driven by profit, you are a lot more likely to fail. The entrepreneurs who succeed usually want to make a difference to people's lives, not just their own bank balances. The desire to change things for the better is the motivation for taking risks and pursuing seemingly impossible business ideas. — Richard Branson

Not Taking Risks Quotes By H. Jackson Brown Jr.

If your life is free of failures, you're not taking enough risks. — H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Raghuram G. Rajan

Not taking risks one doesn't understand is often the best form of risk management. — Raghuram G. Rajan

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Janny Wurts

There are many reasons to avoid taking risks. Friendship is not among them. — Janny Wurts

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Catherine Jinks

I'm not a risk-taker; that's probably why I write - because when you're easily bored, but you don't like taking risks, you end up doing it all in your head. — Catherine Jinks

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Tom DiCillo

I think actors, at a certain point in their careers, decide they're either going to keep taking risks or take the exact same risk over and over again so that it's not a risk anymore. That's when I don't want to work with them. I think there are some actors who are just doing the exact same thing, and they will never shift from it. — Tom DiCillo

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Rupert Murdoch

If the head man in a company is not working 12 hours a day, doing things, taking risks, but also standing with his people in the trenches at the most difficult of times, then the company loses something. — Rupert Murdoch

Not Taking Risks Quotes By Michael Sheen

Nothing can be left until the last minute, so that everyone knows exactly where they are. Everyone is comfortable and everyone feels safe because we want people to be able to keep coming into this show and taking those risks. There are a lot of risks in this show, not just nudity, but emotional risks. We want the best actors to feel comfortable about coming in and exploring this subject matter with us. — Michael Sheen

Not Taking Risks Quotes By David S. Landes

Where there are kings, there must be the greatest cowards. For men's souls are enslaved and refuse to run risks readily and recklessly to increase the power of somebody else. But independent people, taking risks on their own behalf and not on behalf of others, are willing and eager to go into danger, for they themselves enjoy the prize of victory. — David S. Landes
