20 QUOTES ABOUT RISK THAT WILL INSPIRE YOU

Posted on

Throughout the ages, many have tried to put into words exactly what risk is and what it means to them. Some have been more successful than others. Today, I want to share with you 20 quotes that have had great impact on me and how I think about the concept of risk. I’m a big fan of quotes because they have the greatest signal to noise ratio of nearly any communication.  I hope they have as profound an effect on you as they have on me. Enjoy!!!
