To Love is to Risk

I love…
…that my heart is able to let you near. This is not because my fears are gone. It is possible because I believe letting you close is worth the risk.

American pastor and writer Ralph W. Sockman
To love is to risk not
being loved in return.
To hope is to risk pain.
To try is to risk failure,
but risk must be taken
because
the greatest hazard
in life
is to risk nothing.
