You know, when the cost of capital goes down, when credit becomes cheap, people start taking greater and greater risks.
Fareed Zakaria
I will take the lead in turning risks into opportunities.
Chey Tae-won
As the bull market goes on, people who take great risks achieve great rewards, seemingly without punishment. It’s like crime without punishment or sex without sin.
Ron Chernow
In order for fashion to progress, we have to always be willing to invest in someone or something new and embrace risks, regardless of the economy.
Renzo Rosso
I love a lot of the ’70s singers: Pam Grier from the ‘Foxy Brown’ movie, Diana Ross, Tina Turner. They’ve always been able to embrace their hair, and they’ve never been afraid to take risks and go all out and make it thick and fun and a statement at the same time.
Jillian Hervey
When I look around, I see a world of unrealized opportunities for improvements, an abundance of talented people able to take the risks necessary to make improvements, but a shortage of people and investors willing to take those risks.
Edward Conard
I take big risks, but I’m not reckless about it.
Larry Charles
What’s life without risks? When I made ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam,’ everybody said in India you can never have a husband say that I am uniting my wife with her lover. The male audience would reject it, and it is a male audience and hero-oriented industry.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Becoming a parent has changed the risk calculus for me. But it might be age, too, and seeing a lot of friends die in the mountains. Will I take the same risks I took in my 20s? Probably not, but I will always push myself in the mountains.
Jimmy Chin
After all, as a taxpayer, if I’m acting as the insurer against losses, I should have the right to say what risks the insured can take.
Jerry A. Webman
Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.
Paulo Coelho
I definitely think independent film is very exciting, and you get to sometimes take bigger risks. So that’s always a challenge and something that I look forward to.
Dakota Fanning
One hour of life, crowded to the full with glorious action, and filled with noble risks, is worth whole years of those mean observances of paltry decorum, in which men steal through existence, like sluggish waters through a marsh, without either honor or observation.
Walter Scott
I admire artists who really take risks and aren’t afraid to do smaller movies and obscure, abstract things. It would be really cool if my career neared that.
Britne Oldford
While Hurricane Katrina demonstrated the dangers of failing to evacuate hospitals from the path of a storm, Hurricane Gustav demonstrated that moving thousands of sick people has its own risks. Gustav also highlighted a critical vulnerability of American hospitals – an inability to withstand prolonged blackouts.
Sheri Fink
I take risks, but I don’t lose respect for my real self. Because what’s going to happen afterwards? How are you going to get back? Is there going to be a train, or will it be after midnight and you can’t go home again?
Isabelle Adjani
You can say a lot of things about me, but you can never say I don’t take risks.
Diego Maradona
Many will call me an adventurer – and that I am, only one of a different sort: one of those who risks his skin to prove his platitudes.
Che Guevara
I’m not a very patient person. I’ll take those quick risks to see if it’s going to work versus taking the long and tortuous road of trying to guarantee myself that something will work. That’s like self-mutilation to me.
Nancy Dubuc
President Obama has never summarized the Obama Doctrine with such clarity, but here is what it would look like: ‘I will undertake any military attack against our enemies, regardless of the risks and collateral damage, so long as it is over by the time I have to announce it.’
Elliott Abrams
I have always said that you have to fail. If you do not fail, it means you have never taken enough risks.
Ajay Piramal
Documentary film without nuanced journalistic sourcing risks being sensational, tendentious or broad-brushed.
Naomi Wolf
Many Americans abhor paternalism. They think that people should be able to go their own way, even if they end up in a ditch. When they run risks, even foolish ones, it isn’t anybody’s business that they do.
Cass Sunstein
I have always been up for risks, but only because I had full confidence and faith in the vision of my directors.
Abhay Deol
No matter the risks we take, we always consider the end

No matter the risks we take, we always consider the end to be too soon, even though in life, more than anything else, quality should be more important than quantity.
Alex Honnold
You know, when you run you got to be all in and you take risks of winning and losing.
Jeb Bush
The more democratic and open a society is, the more it’s exposed to terrorism. The more a country is free, not governed by a police regime, the more it risks hijackings or massacres like the ones that took place for many years in Italy and Germany and other parts of Europe.
Oriana Fallaci
I fought passionately to remain in the E.U., and I warned of the economic risks if we left the E.U.
George Osborne
In the modern era, with the rewards the top players have during their career and the risks involved moving into management, more will look at it and say they don’t need it.
Jamie Carragher
I’m prepared to take risks. And every movie that I do is a risk. No one knows what the movie is going out turn out like.
Jason Statham
In social policy, when we provide a safety net, it should be designed to help people take more entrepreneurial risks, not to turn them into dependents. This doesn’t mean that we should be callous to the underprivileged.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love. Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.
Elie Wiesel
As an artist, you reflect the world around you. To do that, you must dive in, take risks, fall on your face, win, and sometimes lose a great deal.
Kellie Martin
Innovation means taking risks, and that is where the private sector can play a role.
Ajay Piramal
I learnt that an actor should be willing to take risks, try new things and unlearn stuff.
Shraddha Srinath
You know how trends go with television. Next year, the networks might not be open to taking risks.
Corey Hawkins
At Tottenham, I’m asked to take a lot of risks to keep maximum possession of the ball and build from the back.
Hugo Lloris
We live in a world where there are many risks, and it’s high time we start taking seriously which ones we should be worried about.
Lisa Randall
I am the most conservative person you will ever come across, and that’s because I’m good at reducing risks while leaving the potential rewards high.
Theo Paphitis
We have to take risks in British television. It has to stop playing to the lowest common denominator and patronising people.
Charles Dance
I’m definitely a gambler, as exemplified by the massive risks I’ve taken.
Molly Bloom
Better educating our college students on the risks of high student debt and helping them to find alternatives to taking out student loans would help make the difference to their financial future.
Darryl Glenn
I think I have an incredible group of people that I work with and people I’m inspired by and community I’m inspired by, and I just want to see us all win and continue to grow and flourish and do incredible things and tell stories in the way they’ve never been told. Take risks, be bold, and be smart.
Stephan James
The risks of piracy spreading beyond the Red Sea and Indian Ocean, off the Somali coast, and in the Straits of Malacca and Singapore and beyond are substantial.
Peter Middlebrook
There was unprecedented elite condemnation of the plans to invade Iraq. Sensible analysts were able to perceive that the enterprise carried significant risks for U.S. interests, however conceived.
Noam Chomsky
Save enough that you can live off of. Then that’s when you take your risks.
Bobby Wagner
Erasing the ALJ process, even if it takes legislation, will not deny anyone due individual process, generate added litigation risks or substantially increase workloads for commissioners or staff.
Michael O’Rielly
To beat opposing teams, you have to attack, and to attack, you have to take risks.
Paul Scholes
It’s always fun to take risks.
Billie Lourd
Because of my own experience with market fluctuation, I recognize the great risks one takes on investments. This converts the Social Security safety net into a risky proposition many cannot afford to take.
Grace Napolitano
Being a musician in Texas had its own set of risks.
Dusty Hill
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
I have always taken risks. I like doing films which are different.
Rajkummar Rao
The federal government needs a strategic approach that includes strong leadership and the ability to manage weather related risks. The challenge of developing such an approach is complex: It must not only encompass all levels of government but must also be developed in a bipartisan manner.
Matt Cartwright
I realise that a novel and a film are different mediums. As artistes, we need to respect other artistes. It also needs a lot of courage to take risks to experiment and interpret known literary works.
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
If designers are willing to take risks, I think buyers

If designers are willing to take risks, I think buyers should take risks, as well with press taking risks.
Jonathan Anderson
The only hard-and-fast rules a Perot must operate under are getting a sound education; being honest and ethical in our business dealings; treating the people who work for us with respect and dignity; and, finally, a Perot cannot be afraid to take risks when appropriate.
Ross Perot, Jr.
I want the biggest fights, the biggest risks, the biggest money. All the titles. That’s what I want.
James DeGale
If you don’t take risks, you won’t be able to do anything. I was confident I could use my experience to change and improve the way Macau worked.
Lui Che Woo
Like so many new moms, I felt anxiety over the impending birth of my daughter. However, most of the anxiety I felt was around the idea of raising a child. I wasn’t focused on potential risks to my health or hers that could occur during the actual birth.
Christy Turlington
Italy remained attached to conservatism. It had a political class that lived in the past and didn’t build the future. The past is our strength, but it risks becoming our ruin if we walk with our heads turned backwards.
Matteo Renzi
You really should not do this job unless you’re willing to put in that enormous amount of effort. You should not do the job unless you’re willing to take risks. And you shouldn’t do the job unless you’re willing to lose the job, too.
Anthony A. Williams
True, foolish risks can lead to difficult consequences. But having said that, don’t be so scared of failure and disappointment that you fail to dream.
Robin S. Sharma
If you want to succeed, you have to take the necessary risks and the occasional leap in the dark.
Tom Payne
The social risks that worry us are not a random bundle of frights.
Ian Hacking
If one wants to change the way things are, one has to take risks and be part of different kinds of cinema, despite not knowing how it will be received. That’s what thrills me.
Sobhita Dhulipala
We are always in a state of flux, and taking risks is important.
Caroline Polachek
We now have the economics confirming that not only is climate action required to reduce climate risks, but that it is vital to building long-term, sustainable economic growth.
Ed Davey
I realized – I’ve been an opposition journalist in Russia for a long time. And I’ve often considered how real risks are and how much of a risk I can take.
Masha Gessen
Whistleblowers often take very significant efforts to bring us material and often at very significant risks.
Julian Assange
I truly believe that the great heroes that create the history of architecture are people who take risks and write to tell about it.
Peter Eisenman
Everybody fails, its no big deal. Its what being human is. Dont let that stop you from taking risks.
Katty Kay
In the media business and as a creative executive, if you don’t take risks, you’re dead in the water. Calculated risk taking is essential for success. No one said it was easy.
Nancy Dubuc
The one I liked to watch and follow was Iniesta, because Iniesta is a mix between an eight and a 10. It is a way I can do better, between eight and 10. It is the guy who always likes to have the ball, take the risks, and I think Iniesta was one of the best in the world.
Bruno Fernandes
I try to be precise with my passes but take some risks as well.
Samir Nasri
A lot of people are willing to pray or to put in work, but they’re not willing to take true risks.
John Tesh
There’s so many guys skiing so fast right now that you really have to be willing to take a lot of risks if you want to give yourself a chance to win. I’m prepared to do it; it’s just a matter of if I can make it work.
Bode Miller
Are we still a country that takes risks, that innovates, that believes anything is possible? Or are we a country that is resigned to whatever liberty the government decides to dish out?
Mitch McConnell
Luxembourg has a track record of being successful when it takes risks. You need to take on risks to be successful.
Etienne Schneider
I know that I often take risks, but it is always for the purposes of the team.
Manuel Neuer
Father was bold, and Mother was cautious. They never shouted at each other but argued constantly about strategy, and they taught me very early that before taking big risks, one must carefully figure the odds.
Benoit Mandelbrot
There’s a widening of an idea of what a TV show can be or how it can be told, and that’s partially in the diversity of the creators and the stories. Because there are so many new networks and streaming services popping up every day that need more content, there are more opportunities to take risks.
Raphael Bob-Waksberg
I regret waiting until my mid-twenties to really start seeing the world. I think I should have taken more risks when I was younger and worried less about being ready to grow up.
John Corey Whaley
The American public has a right to know the truth about the risks they face in their daily lives and how we are responding.
Andrew R. Wheeler
In my view, Asian countries have learnt the lessons from the past and significantly enhanced their capabilities to fend off risks.
Li Keqiang
Without industry, finance and government consciously and collaboratively ensuring that capital flows to where it is needed in order to ensure the scaling up of climate change solutions, whatever deal is agreed risks never being realised.
Noreena Hertz
When you have less risk, you have more fun. You can tak

When you have less risk, you have more fun. You can take risks. It’s much easier to take risks when there’s less money on the line.
Jason Blum
While many technological measures can be taken to secure safety at nuclear power plants, such measures on their own cannot cover great risks.
Naoto Kan
Liberalism regards life as an adventure in which we must take risks in new situation, in which there is no guarantee that the new will always be the good or the true, in which progress is a precarious achievement rather than inevitability.
Morris Raphael Cohen
The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.
Mark Zuckerberg
Women don’t take enough risks. Men are just ‘foot on the gas pedal.’ We’re not going to close the achievement gap until we close the ambition gap.
Sheryl Sandberg
If someone is always to blame, if every time something goes wrong someone has to be punished, people quickly stop taking risks. Without risks, there can’t be breakthroughs.
Peter Diamandis
Taking risks gives me energy.
Jay Chiat
When people hear the phrase ‘risk-taker’, two images come to mind. One is the negative idea of someone who’s reckless and unpredictable, sometimes succeeding and at other times crashing out. The other is a more positive view of a fearless innovator who takes risks when others nervously stand back.
Norman Swan
That’s the Apple I want – I want an Apple that’s bold and taking risks and being aggressive.
Phil Schiller
Culture’s worth huge, huge risks. Without culture we’re all totalitarian beasts.
Norman Mailer
The pilgrims on the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock. To my knowledge, they didn’t wait around for a return trip to Europe. You settle some place with a purpose. If you don’t want to do that, stay home. You avoid an awful lot of risks by not venturing outward.
Buzz Aldrin
I like to take risks and do weird things and stuff that’s not normal compared to other Hollywood movies. Not stuff that’s totally avant garde and daring, but doing stuff that’s in other languages and not using stars and using real people – things that they generally don’t do in mainstream films.
Eli Roth
When people take risks and it’s not rewarded, in the case of ‘Mirror’s Edge,’ it’s makes it harder for others to be comfortable taking risks.
Randy Pitchford
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
‘Damage’ is about taking risks, stepping into new territory regardless of the outcome.
Mya
The brain aneurysm I had in 2006 put things into perspective. It made me understand what was really important – to enjoy life, take more risks and stop putting things off.
Karren Brady
I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door.
Marla Gibbs
I am proud being an artist who takes risks, who would walk off a cliff artistically. I won’t settle for commercial reasons.
Colman Domingo
We’ve got some real greedy hogs who own no interest in the company they’re running, whose sole interest is in whatever it takes to be able to get to the point to fly out on their golden parachute and milk the shareholder and take risks that they shouldn’t take.
Joe Jamail
Passion is one great force that unleashes creativity, because if you’re passionate about something, then you’re more willing to take risks.
Yo-Yo Ma
When your arms are out wide, you’ll capture love and joy and golden moments but other things, too. Mistrust will sneak in on a wave of that joy, and complications will ride the backs of the golden moments, and there will be both love and the risks of love. That’s the way it is. That’s the design.
Deb Caletti
North Koreans are tragically oppressed. Despite the risks to my personal safety, I feel a strong obligation to tell the world about the Orwellian nightmare that North Koreans face.
Lee Hyeon-seo
There are so few shows that are willing to take risks with their characters in the way that ‘Homeland’ does. And yet, the audience still comes back and loves those characters.
Raza Jaffrey
I’m strong and fearless and not afraid to take risks in business.
Khloe Kardashian
When I entered the field in July 1958 I believed what they told me about radiation risks. I spent much effort reducing the dose to patients in radiology.
John Cameron
War zones are dangerous, protests can be violent, also, natural disasters are difficult to cover, so there are going to be risks.
Kate Adie
I think it’s very admirable, in a superhero movie, to be able to take a few risks.
Shane Black
When I’m dealing with Britney Spears and Katy Perry, these massive brands, like, really, very Coca-Cola, you know what I mean? There are certain kinds of standards. There are risks you can take, and there’s risks that you don’t. And I think I’m interested in taking a little more risk in my own music.
Bonnie McKee
The Fourth Industrial Revolution has the potential to empower individuals and communities, as it creates new opportunities for economic, social, and personal development. But it also could lead to the marginalization of some groups, exacerbate inequality, create new security risks, and undermine human relationships.
Klaus Schwab
We’re going to take risks. What has always been will not necessarily always be forever.
Roberto Goizueta
Taking risks gives me energy.
Jay Chiat
When it comes to human life, clearly I want to make sur

When it comes to human life, clearly I want to make sure we are doing all we can to protect people, and we must remember that this is one of the most treacherous stretches of water that there is – 21 miles, people taking grave risks.
Sajid Javid
There’s risk in everything that you do. It’s up to you to measure those risks and do what you want to do.
Brian Urlacher
Some studies show that women can be better money managers than men because they tend to be more conservative and do their homework. Men tend to take more risks without the research.
Maria Bartiromo
It might be a lot easier to take risks if you’re part of a group who will look out for one another.
Andrew Yang
Succeeding in life is a difficult business – you need to work 16 hours a day, face failures along the way, remember that nobody owes you a thing, and take risks.
Yair Lapid
You want to encourage yourself to take risks. If you make a mistake trying to do something, you can fix it later.
Steve Mollenkopf
Sixteen games, to me, is a long enough schedule for anybody. We’re already concerning ourselves with head injuries and bodily harm to all of the professional athletes. Add to extra games to it, (and) you are just increasing those risks.
Emmitt Smith
We run enormous risks and we know what kind of reductions of greenhouse gases are necessary to drastically reduce risks. Reducing emissions by half by 2050 is roughly in the right ballpark. It would bring us below 550 ppm.
Nicholas Stern
The question arises whether private companies can bear responsibility when considering the large risks involved with nuclear business.
Naoto Kan
The Fourth Industrial Revolution does not just entail risks: it also brings solutions to humanitarian problems.
Peter Maurer
And I know the risks of changing captaincy midway through a season. At Derby, it was a great compliment when Paul Jewell handed me the armband, and I was made captain of my fourth Premier League club, but it was awkward for Matt Oakley, who had it taken away from him.
Robbie Savage
I’m not scared of big stadiums. There are other risks in my profession, and I love taking risks.
Massimiliano Allegri
As a child, the family that I had and the love I had from my two parents allowed me to go ahead and be more aggressive, to search and to take risks knowing that, if I failed, I could always come home to a family of love and support.
Tiger Woods
For me, acting is a series of impressions rather than trying to find one line through to the end, which risks becoming more of a presentation.
Ken Stott
Entrepreneurs take measured risks, not hopeless gambles.
Charlie Kirk
If I am putting myself out there and taking some of these risks, then I want to do it properly.
Daniel Ricciardo
I don’t want to change how I am, how I play, so if it means taking more risks, it’s always going to be the case, and that’s fine for me.
Vincent Kompany
Get the entire team involved in identifying and evaluating project risks. Everyone looks at the project differently, and sometimes the input from the student intern can be vital.
Bruce Pittman
English football is evolving. It’s no longer the game it used to be. Apart from the larger quantities of money which make it more attractive to foreign stars, the mentality is also different – everybody looks to win games no matter what, even if it means taking risks.
Gianfranco Zola
It’s government’s role to inform us of risks and let us use personal responsibility to evaluate that risk ourselves.
Lauren Boebert
In this case they’re doctors. But having passion for your work and to take risks in order to better human kind. That’s a pretty big theme. It’s pretty inspiring.
Mary Stuart Masterson
Issues of energy, climate change, nuclear arms control and non-proliferation are all big deals. These are problems that we have to get right globally, not just nationally, and there are big benefits in cooperating, in terms of sharing costs, in terms of sharing risks, in terms of propagating the best answers.
John Holdren
I feel bound to respect Ronald Reagan, as every American should – not least because he chose a career of public service when he could have made a lot more money doing something else, and not least because he took genuine risks for peace.
Rick Perlstein
Before acquiring a project, take the advice of experienced trade pundits in the industry and analyse the risks and business propositions thoroughly.
Rajinikanth
Have confidence in your own voice, be entrepreneurial, and take big risks with the knowledge that, by default of being a woman, people are going to advise you to be conservative, play it safe, make sure everyone likes you, and constantly question whether or not you’re ready to be in charge.
Susanna Fogel
Just tasking a team to be creative won’t get you to be innovative. It’s having a corporate climate that gives people the space to experiment and take risks. Only then can you truly sustain it.
Steve Brown
If you are not breaking rules and you are not taking risks, you are not going to end up with movies where there is discovery… and, to me, that is the magic of going into the cinema.
Chris Meledandri
Just as he who gives his life to serve a great idea is admirable, he who avails himself of a great idea to serve his personal hopes of glory and power is abominable, even if he too risks his life.
Jose Marti
If no one ever took risks, Michaelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor.
Neil Simon
‘Blanche’ opened a new door for me without really making me more famous. ‘Blanche’ was a risk, but that is the only thing that excites me in this profession. The knowledge that I am an actress who takes risks lifts my soul.
Lou Doillon
A witness, in the sense that I am using the word, is a man whose life and faith are so completely one that when the challenge comes to step out and testify for his faith, he does so, disregarding all risks, accepting all consequences.
Whittaker Chambers
I wasn't exactly uncomfortable when I did my first come

I wasn’t exactly uncomfortable when I did my first comedy. I was just very aware of the risks; if you do a comedy that sucks, and you suck in it, then you won’t get a chance to do it again.
Donnie Wahlberg
When you believe games can only be toys for kids and that you are successful at doing this, why would you look further and take risks exploring new directions?
David Cage
I was profoundly moved to be the first United Nations Secretary-General to attend the Peace Memorial Ceremony in Hiroshima. I also visited Nagasaki. Sadly, we know the terrible humanitarian consequences from the use of even one weapon. As long as such weapons exist, so, too, will the risks of use and proliferation.
Ban Ki-moon
There’s no real theatre without taking risks.
Haris Pasovic
Sometimes in football you have to take risks.
John McGinn
Who gets the risks? The risks are given to the consumer, the unsuspecting consumer and the poor work force. And who gets the benefits? The benefits are only for the corporations, for the money makers.
Cesar Chavez
I just let the work speak for itself. An actor is not afraid to take risks; to put on different hats; to be a good guy, a bad guy, a victim, an abuser. There are all kinds of people in the world, and playing them is what acting is all about.
Kevin Bacon
I must tell you I take terrible risks. Because my playing is very clear, when I make a mistake you hear it. If you want me to play only the notes without any specific dynamics, I will never make one mistake. Never be afraid to dare.
Vladimir Horowitz
The promise of America has always been that if you worked hard, had the right values, took some risks, that there was an opportunity to build a better life for your family and for your next generation.
Mitt Romney
From comedy, mythology, and drama to reality show, I have never stopped myself from taking risks.
Rubina Dilaik
The boring, safe choices never stand out. Take risks!
Perez Hilton
Mark Ruffalo, aka the Incredible Hulk, is the natural gas industry’s worst nightmare: a serious, committed activist who is determined to use his star power as a superhero in the hottest movie of the moment to draw attention the environmental and public health risks of fracking.
Jeff Goodell
I always found it bizarre or strange that there was this unwritten set of rules around how a woman could interact with a man in terms of starting a conversation. While a man traditionally is always expected to make the first move, he risks rejection in a real way.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
Some people are just more prepared to take risks than others. I grew up a gambler. That’s my name: Maverick.
Maverick Carter
With less and less races people will want to take more risks.
Charles Leclerc
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
When I was president, I worked hard to give you more peace and shared prosperity, to give you an America where nobody is invisible or counted out. But for this time, Hillary is uniquely qualified to seize the opportunities and reduce the risks we face. And she is still the best darn change-maker I have ever known.
William J. Clinton
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
Great risks come in long term, tremendously assiduous, very courageous study.
William Hurt
Improv training allows you to get out of your head a little bit and take more risks, which is something I would like to continue to improve upon.
Allison Tolman
It’s too bad that one has to conceive of sports as being the only arena where risks are, for all of life is risk exercise. That’s the only way to live more freely, and more interestingly.
William Sloane Coffin
Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love. Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.
Elie Wiesel
The gravest risks from al Qaeda combine its affinity for big targets and its announced desire for weapons of mass destruction.
Barton Gellman
Certainly science, because of its ability to increase our capacities to do things, raises terrible risks for us all. If it were possible to undiscover nuclear fission, I would be very happy to undiscover it, because of the risks that it puts us all under.
Steven Weinberg
Show me a Scorsese film, and I’ll show you a movie where he’s taken risks. It’s just his nature. He’s an artist, and artists take risks. He always does what he believes in.
Irwin Winkler
I want to show up to work and take risks. I don’t ever want to play it safe.
James Badge Dale
There is no such thing as replacing Chris Berman, but the chance to build on his incredible legacy while simultaneously taking new risks to serve NFL fans is the opportunity of a lifetime.
Samantha Ponder
Issues relating to global health and sustainability must stay high on the agenda if we are to cope with an ageing and ever-increasing population, with growing pressure on resources, and with rising global temperatures. The risks and dangers need to be assessed and then confronted.
Martin Rees
I prefer clean silhouettes that are almost utilitarian, but I’m not afraid to take risks on the red carpet, either.
Haley Bennett
You can take risks with the characters and their development in a standalone novel.
Karin Slaughter
I’m singularly lucky to have worked with directors who dared me to take risks and be different and I am thankful to the Indian film industry for giving me my primary identity.
Shabana Azmi
An asteroid or a supervolcano could certainly destroy u

An asteroid or a supervolcano could certainly destroy us, but we also face risks the dinosaurs never saw: An engineered virus, nuclear war, inadvertent creation of a micro black hole, or some as-yet-unknown technology could spell the end of us.
Elon Musk
I like to bet on people, especially those who have taken risks and failed in some way, because they have more real-world experience. And they’re humble.
Mark Pincus
I don’t think there’s any story worth dying for, but I do think there are stories worth taking risks for.
Anthony Shadid
Creative risk taking is essential to success in any goal where the stakes are high. Thoughtless risks are destructive, of course, but perhaps even more wasteful is thoughtless caution which prompts inaction and promotes failure to seize opportunity.
Gary Ryan Blair
I really like doing television shows, and I anticipated doing a comedy, because that’s the place I feel the most comfortable – those are the risks I want to take.
Lizzy Caplan
Prenatal testing is a complicated decision for many women, forcing us to confront concerns about a disabled child and risks of miscarriage.
Emily Oster
Crashes are the worst thing because your wounds stick to you, so you are sweating into your road rash all day and when you try to sleep your wounds are sticking to the bed sheets. It is part of the job and we know the risks.
Mark Cavendish
I do believe women have different ways of taking risks, of ruminating a bit more before they jump to conclusions. And I think that as a result, particularly on the, on, you know, on the trading floor, in the financial markets in general, the approach would be different.
Christine Lagarde
Well look, CIA is an agency that has to collect intelligence, do operations. We have to take risks and it’s important that we take risks and that we know that we have the support of the government and we have the support of the American people in what we’re doing.
Leon Panetta
I focus on the writing and let the rest of the process take care of itself. I’ve learned to trust my own instincts and I’ve also learned to take risks.
Sue Grafton
I think you always need to take new, big risks from a storytelling point of view.
Chris Chibnall
TV is so expensive to make and these channels aren’t necessarily rolling in money, that getting anything off the ground… they can’t take that many risks.
Alex Horne
Life is full of risks, and you don’t want to raise someone who’s afraid of taking risks, either physically or emotionally.
Dana Reeve
Never stop taking risks. Just keep reaching.
Ryan Eggold
On Netflix and other streaming services, they’re taking risks that are based on ‘Come with us! Come with us!’ and the audience does.
Eric McCormack
I got to a point I was so focused on getting a title shot all the thought in my head was to go out there and win at all costs, so maybe it made me fight a certain way, maybe take a lot of risks and stuff like that.
Ryan Bader
I mean, the title of my show is my name. That’s not because I was an established voice. It’s because of a rising number of outlets, and an increased willingness to take risks. All the sudden, people like me are finding themselves in the position to make things.
Ramy Youssef
We are all vulnerable to the tendency to overestimate the likelihood of vivid, cognitively available risks rather than statistically likelier, but less salient, risks.
Karl Iagnemma
California is a place of invention, a place of courage, a place of vision, a place of the future. People who made California what it is were willing to take risks, think outside convention and build.
Nicolas Berggruen
I consider ‘White Collar’ my home base. I’m so lucky to get to play a character that’s very multifaceted and the writers take risks on and never get into a staid process with.
Matt Bomer
Opportunities arrive and you think, ‘Wow, that seems like a really good idea.’ You take risks. If they don’t work out, you move on.
Diana Taylor
When gene therapy was believed to harbor latent risks, research was largely put on hold until the risks were better understood. Sometimes, the theoretical risks have led to a principle of absolutist precaution that impedes progress.
Scott Gottlieb
When rewards go up, people are more inclined to take risks.
Edward Conard
Even a mother – Jewish or not – can’t worry about everything. So it is important that we limit our worries to real as opposed to imaginary risks.
Richard Thaler
Deliberately modifying the earth’s atmosphere would be a desperate gamble with significant risks. Yet the more likely climate change is to cause devastation, the more attractive even the most perilous attempts to mitigate those changes will become.
Michael Specter
This is the problem with the world today: Nobody wants to take risks, to risk being themselves.
Giorgio Armani
I stepped out on faith to follow my lifelong dream of being an author. I made real sacrifices and took big risks. But living, it seems to me, is largely about risk.
Jan Karon
A Conservative government will set immigration policy within a wider strategy that meets the changing demographic make-up of Britain, taking full account of its impact on our population and maximising the economic advantages while mitigating the costs and risks.
Dominic Grieve
The best advice I give to young people starting out is choose your boss. Regardless of gender, I think it is important to have someone who supports you and lets you take risks without fear of failure.
Nancy Dubuc
What I really like doing is taking risks, musically.
Casey Abrams
I sort of feel like if you’re slightly marginalized, you’re hungrier, and you can take more risks and be more playful.
Marilyn Minter
I first bought a Buffy Sainte-Marie record when I was 1

I first bought a Buffy Sainte-Marie record when I was 12, and her music has always remained with me. In the 1960s, as a political activist, Buffy’s lyrics were fearless, and I’m very grateful for all the risks that she took.
Morrissey
No other entertainer in the world ever took the risks that Liberace took.
Robin Leach
An asteroid or a supervolcano could certainly destroy us, but we also face risks the dinosaurs never saw: An engineered virus, nuclear war, inadvertent creation of a micro black hole, or some as-yet-unknown technology could spell the end of us.
Elon Musk
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
A tremendous amount of the entrepreneurial initiative, if you want to call it that, comes from the dynamic state sector on which most of the economy relies to socialize costs and risks and privatize eventual profit. And that’s achieved by, if you like, advertising.
Noam Chomsky
Taking risks doesn’t mean shirking responsibility, but embracing possibilities.
Vick Hope
You can’t get anywhere in life without taking risks.
Esme Bianco
I really, really like Nicole Richie, and the only reason why I always bring her up is because I’m impressed with her style evolution. This is someone that came onto the scene that people didn’t necessarily view as a style icon, and she completely switched up the game. And I like how she takes risks with fashion.
Tia Mowry
Journalists couldn’t do their jobs overseas without taking risks, and the same is true for diplomats and intelligence officers.
David Ignatius
You can’t do things unexpected in life if you’re not willing to take a risk, and it’s easier to risk your own life than it is for your parent to watch you take risks. It’s very, very hard for parents to see children doing things that aren’t a solid path. I’ve been through that.
Lisa Edelstein
The risks of speaking extemporaneously are apparent the first time you wing it and promptly put your foot in your mouth.
Ryan Holiday
I wish that more people were willing to turn down upfront money in exchange for doing things that are more original. Turning down a seven-figure check has a ripple effect on the budget, which has a ripple effect on the storytelling. The higher the budget gets, the fewer storytelling risks you’re able to take.
Jason Blum
Government does not create wealth. The major role for the government is to create an environment where people take risks to expand the job rate in the United States.
George W. Bush
The two great risks are risking too much but also risking too little. That’s for each person to decide. For me, not risking anything is worse than death. By far.
Jimmy Chin
I constantly make fashion mistakes but I think it’s good to take risks.
Clemence Poesy
You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.
Paulo Coelho
Television is more of a business. You can’t take as many risks, because there’s so many channels now, and the advertising’s dropping.
Dana Delany
History should belong to all of us, and it needs to include people from different cultural backgrounds. Otherwise, it risks becoming irrelevant to children, who could then become disenchanted with education.
Malorie Blackman
Any doctor will admit that any drug can have side effects, and that writing a prescription involves weighing the potential benefits against the risks.
Mark Udall
Legendary is in the unique position in that they have the resources to take risks, which I think has really benefitted ‘Pacific Rim.’
Travis Beacham
Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks.
Stephen Hawking
Risk it; go for it. Life always gives you another chance, another go at it. It’s very important to take enormous risks.
Mary Quant
Rihanna takes risks, and I love a woman who takes risks. It just goes to show you have your own mind and your own way of thinking.
Future
The president has been more than willing to challenge the National Rifle Association, but that is like a Republican president standing up to labor unions – not a move that risks anything with his core supporters. Mr. Obama could show some real bravery by taking on Hollywood.
Campbell Brown
It is well known that men will apply for a job they are half qualified for, but women do not apply unless they meet every requirement. We want to see girls have equal levels of confidence and take the necessary leaps and risks.
Nicky Morgan
There are lots of risks, but without risks, there’s no reward. I think the reward is bigger than the risk.
Brock Lesnar
I think it’s a competitive advantage that both Amazon and Google and other tech companies have over a lot of their counterparts. They take big risks and are pioneering new markets with the promise of big rewards. It’s why Amazon is kind of reliably starting new businesses and opening kind of new frontiers.
Brad Stone
Activists take the risks, while advocates are professional tinkerers with the system. What’s necessary is for those who are advocates to support those who are activists and to envision themselves as activists.
Michelle Alexander
I decided to start a medical training program for freelancers, only freelancers. They’re the ones who are doing most of the combat reporting. They’re taking most of the risks. They’re absorbing most of the casualties. And they’re the most underserved and under-resourced of everyone in the entire news business.
Sebastian Junger
Ironically, the opportunity to go into space brings you back down to Earth big time! My decision must also take into account my children, my family and my friends. I must be at peace with this decision. And I was. I weighed the risks without letting fear feed on fear. There is no room for fear in my life.
Guy Laliberte
I will take less risks. When the options aren’t appearing, I will clear it into the stands or play a long ball up front.
Alisson
I think that every artistic venture is a risk, and it h

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
I’ve always taken risks, and never worried what the world might really think of me.
Cher
Left unchecked, climate change risks not only making the poorest poorer, but pulling the emerging middle classes back into poverty, too.
Paul Polman
Only reform and opening up can develop China. We must not be afraid of any risks, and not be confused by any distractions.
Hu Jintao
Forth & Towne was a great test of a promising concept and an illustration of the innovative risks you need to take in our business. We made the tough decision to close the brand and focus our efforts on stabilizing the existing businesses.
Robert J. Fisher
As the story about CTE got more real, it became more clear that players are playing that without a full understanding of the risks they face, and the long-term effects.
Steve Young
Children are more restricted than ever when it comes to taking physical risks – one of the ways previous generations built resilience. Thanks to health and safety mania, leapfrog, marbles and conkers are now considered unsafe.
Claire Fox
I think it’s because it’s so different and it takes risks. Plus, it’s really smart humor. It gives the audience credit in terms of not needing to tell them when to laugh. I love that about the show. There’s no laugh track.
Sarah Chalke
There are risks which are not acceptable: the destruction of humanity is one of them.
Friedrich Durrenmatt
Take risks and try new things.
Chiara Ferragni
Sometimes I feel an obligation to be accessible as a personality, but for me the driving force since the beginning has always been good work, taking risks, trying new things. If the door opens, go through it. Always go forwards.
David Soul
It took the Gulf War to demonstrate that America did want more than one friend in the Mideast, and also was willing to take and make major risks to prevent a small Muslim country, Kuwait, from being overrun and in effect stolen by Iraq.
Caspar Weinberger
I am happy to be patient zero. It is for the world, for the sick children and sick old people. My life has been good. I understand the risks but I research how people die and I am happy to say that today I do not know how I will die now. Tomorrow or in the long future I was up for a change.
Liz Parrish
I have always believed in reinventing myself and taking risks.
Himesh Reshammiya
What is special about ‘Hannah’ is she’s complex. She takes risks and she’s smart, and she has a lot of love for people.
Esme Creed-Miles
You don’t concentrate on risks. You concentrate on results. No risk is too great to prevent the necessary job from getting done.
Chuck Yeager
I like taking risks. I like trying new things, whether it be style or restaurants or whatever.
Lewis Hamilton
I’ve thought about what I could accomplish in football, but when you read about Mike Webster and Dave Duerson and Ray Easterling, you read all these stories, and to be the type of player I want to be in football, I think I’d have to take on some risks that, as a person, I don’t want to take on.
Chris Borland
I don’t think there’s any story worth dying for, but I do think there are stories worth taking risks for.
Anthony Shadid
Enrique Muricano isn’t afraid to try something new, to take risks, to possibly fail, and in turn, set himself apart.
Lela Loren
As a result of the World War and of a peace whose imperfections and risks are no longer denied by anyone, are we not even further away from the great aspirations and hopes for peace and fraternity than we were one or two decades ago?
Hjalmar Branting
I play in a way that means taking risks. The problem is that, from 300 passes, you make one mistake.
Claudio Bravo
People like Brel were sensitive and vulnerable; on stage, they dared to take risks.
Stromae
I want to reduce my risks as much as possible and hopefully be able to go to the World Cup fit, ready and healthy.
Abby Wambach
One of the risks for anybody in the lending business is that being conservative can harm your competitiveness.
Michael Burry
I just am a huge fan of PBS. They’ve taken great risks from great shows.
Kim Raver
But we also believe in taking risks, because that’s how you move things along.
Melinda Gates
Without competition, Silicon Valley will stop taking risks and will stop innovating.
Brianna Wu
I have always been incredibly grateful for my time in the Bachelor world, and while overall I have no regrets, my time on the show hasn’t come without its hardships. But I have always been a risk taker and have always believed the greatest things in life often come with the greatest risks.
Nick Viall
People who take risks are the people you’ll lose against.
John Sculley
Where there is a problem, the risks to the public are greater than they’ve ever been before.
Dan Glickman
Living with fear stops us taking risks, and if you don'

Living with fear stops us taking risks, and if you don’t go out on the branch, you’re never going to get the best fruit.
Sarah Parish
I understand the risks associated with being a soldier. But I think as members of Congress, we should not intensify the chance that we’ll have to commit troops to a military conflict unless it’s absolutely necessary to defend the nation.
Keith Ellison
Once we secure our borders – and the federal government has not done a good job – then Congress, I believe, needs to take up the issue and look at how we try and identify those people that are here, that are national security risks to the United States.
David Dewhurst
I went to multiple doctors to make sure that I’m taking the right anti-depression medication and make sure that my blood pressure’s okay. I found out that my blood pressure wasn’t okay and that I had a fatty liver. All these health risks were coming up.
Ashley Nell Tipton
For many years now, ExxonMobil has held the view that the risks of climate change are serious and do warrant action.
Rex Tillerson
The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. Don’t store unnecessary data, keep an eye on what’s happening, and don’t take unnecessary risks.
Chris Bell
As I began to take risks, leaving my very comfortable and secure job and taking this first leap into fashion, every subsequent risk became easier to take because I began to see the kind of opportunity and excitement that risk-taking offered.
Imran Amed
People who take risks like Amy Winehouse and Norah Jones take a second to catch on, but eventually they do because they’re different and honest in a musical landscape that’s not always like that.
Emmy Rossum
When I take risks, I win. When I do the safe thing, it’s a disaster.
Christine and the Queens
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
Muhammad Ali
Libras like to take risks!
Cardi B
When I worry about risks, I worry about the biggest ones, particularly those that are difficult to predict – the ones I call small but deep holes. While odds are you will avoid them, if you do fall in one, it’s a long way down and nearly impossible to claw your way out.
Henry Paulson
I want to try new things and put myself out there and take some risks.
Cam Gigandet
It’s important to take risks and challenge yourself. That’s why I went into acting, really.
Roger Allam
You have to take risks.
Perry Farrell
When you experience a failure as a leader, don’t hide it – talk about it. Your missed opportunity will encourage others to take risks.
Naveen Jain
I remember when being a ‘a company man’ was a badge of honor; today in Silicon Valley it may brand you a loser or, in the best case scenario, someone afraid to take risks. Ten years ago, if you saw a resume that had multiple jobs in ten years, you would be worried about the capability of the individual. Not so now.
Maynard Webb
Hedge funds, private equity and venture capital funds have played an important role in providing liquidity to our financial system and improving the efficiency of capital markets. But as their role has grown, so have the risks they pose.
Jack Reed
I do everything I can to be the best actor I can be, the best musician I can be. I try to take risks; I try not to let fear run my life.
Robert David Hall
If your business had no risk, you could go get a bank loan and call it a day. VCs like risks – without them, venture capital wouldn’t exist. But they need to be risks that VCs are good at assessing and managing.
Jose Ferreira
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
Democracy is becoming collateral damage in a world where global risks have been ignored or exacerbated by those with the power to act.
Sharan Burrow
Far from protecting children, the abuse of Article 8 risks making them pawns – subject to coercion or worse – as part of a criminal’s desperate struggle to stay in Britain.
Dominic Raab
Gamble, cheat, lie, and steal. Let me explain: Gamble for your best shot in life – dare to take risks. Cheat those who would have you be less than you are. Lie in the arms of those you love. And finally, steal every moment of happiness.
Caitlyn Jenner
Many will call me an adventurer, and that I am, only one of a different sort: one of those who risks his skin to prove his platitudes.
Pawan Kalyan
As an entrepreneur, I have been known for taking risks throughout my career, but leaving the European Union is not one of the risks I would want the U.K. to take – not as an investor, not as a father, and not as a grandfather. I am deeply concerned about the impact of leaving.
Richard Branson
Yes, I’m working on playing with my feet, so I take risks.
Alisson
I realised that being a mother is similar to being an entrepreneur. You set up a system that is your family and you invest… you take risks and you actually have the most important job of rearing up the future of not just your family or an individual, but of the entire world. That is a tough and risky job.
Manushi Chhillar
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
I like to take risks as long as they’re healthy, you know. They’re good, smart risks.
Alyson Stoner
