If somebody is disrespecting somebody, we should step in - even at the risk of getting slugged over the head.Letitia Baldrige At Risk Sayings By Letitia Baldrige: If somebody is disrespecting somebody, we should step in - even at the risk of
Beware making a person, rather than a position, the opposition. If we do that we run the risk of losing that person as an ally on another issue about which we both agree. Moreover, if we think of persons as the opposition, we may end up arguing personalities rather than issues, and at that point reason goes out the windowElouise Bell At Risk Sayings By Elouise Bell: Beware making a person, rather than a position, the opposition. If we do that we
Their heroes were always straying from well-lit paths and into the woods. Or maybe it was a single wood: the dark place where the things they feared most dwelled. And so, he reassured himself, he had the advantage of knowing already how this had to end. He had stopped to admire a flower, had gotten waylaid in the shadows, but in no time at all he would be back on the path again renewed and rededicated. For was that not the point of the woods?Garth Risk Hallberg At Risk Sayings By Garth Risk Hallberg: Their heroes were always straying from well-lit paths and into the woods. Or maybe it

But more often than not, before we fall, we fly.Courtney Cole At Risk Sayings By Courtney Cole: She looked at me and she said, Branden, the best things in life are worth

The play-it-safe pessimists of the world never accomplish much of anything, because they don't look clearly and objectively at situations, they don't recognize or believe in their own abilities to overcome even the smallest amount of risk.Benjamin Hoff At Risk Sayings By Benjamin Hoff: The play-it-safe pessimists of the world never accomplish much of anything, because they don't look
The word 'survivor' carries a weight of remembrance that has broken the minds and bodies of more than a few men and women. It also contains a humbling light of recognition that compels many to do whatever they can to help reinforce the efforts of those who might be 'at risk' of not just giving up on their dreams, but of giving up on their continued existence.Aberjhani At Risk Sayings By Aberjhani: The word 'survivor' carries a weight of remembrance that has broken the minds and bodies
I'm putting my life at risk, literally! And if I slipped ... You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I'm like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.Kanye West At Risk Sayings By Kanye West: I'm putting my life at risk, literally! And if I slipped ... You never know.
My body
Healed quickly. But the wound
to my psyche was deep.
Wide. First aid, too little, too late,
left me hemorrhaging inside,
the blood unstaunched by psychological
bandage or love's healing magic.
Eventually it scabbed over,
a thick, ugly welt of memory.
I work to conceal it, but no matter
how hard I try, once in a while
something makes me pick at it
until the scarring bleeds.
In my arms, Ashante cries,
innocence ripped apart
by circumstance. Bloodied by
inhuman will. Time will prove
a tourniquet. But she will always
be at risk of infection. (124)
Ellen Hopkins At Risk Sayings By Ellen Hopkins: My bodyHealed quickly. But the woundto my psyche was deep.Wide. First aid, too little, too
It will take a massive effort to move society from corporate domination, in which industry's rights to pollute and damage health and the environment supersede the public's right to live, work, and play in safety. This is a political fight. The science is already there, showing that people's health is at risk. To win, we will need to keep building the movement, networking with one another, planning, strategizing, and moving forward. Our children's futures, and those of their unborn children, are at stake.Lois Gibbs At Risk Sayings By Lois Gibbs: It will take a massive effort to move society from corporate domination, in which industry's
A risk-taking environment starts at the top of a corporation. If the CEO doesn't have this spirit, chances are you won't find it anywhere else in the organization.Mary Kay Ash At Risk Sayings By Mary Kay Ash: A risk-taking environment starts at the top of a corporation. If the CEO doesn't have
To aim at excellence, our reputation, and friends, and all must be ventured; to aim at the average we run no risk and provide little service.Oliver Goldsmith At Risk Sayings By Oliver Goldsmith: To aim at excellence, our reputation, and friends, and all must be ventured; to aim
Men cannot be men - much less good or heroic men - unless their actions have meaningful consequences to people they truly care about. Strength requires an opposing force, courage requires risk, mastery requires hard work, honor requires accountability to other men. Without these things, we are little more than boys playing at being men, and there is no weekend retreat or mantra or half-assed rite of passage that can change that. A rite of passage must reflect a real change in status and responsibility for it to be anything more than theater. No reimagined manhood of convenience can hold its head high so long as the earth remains the tomb of our ancestorsJack Donovan At Risk Sayings By Jack Donovan: Men cannot be men - much less good or heroic men - unless their actions
What we hunger for perhaps more than anything else is to be known in our full humanness, and yet that is often just what we also fear more than anything else. It is important to tell at least from time to time the secret of who we truly and fully are ... because otherwise we run the risk of losing track of who we truly and fully are and little by little come to accept instead the highly edited version which we put forth in hope that the world will find it more acceptable than the real thing. It is important to tell our secrets too because it makes it easier ... for other people to tell us a secret or two of their own ...Frederick Buechner At Risk Sayings By Frederick Buechner: What we hunger for perhaps more than anything else is to be known in our
Growing up, I was the champion of spiders and moths in my house, catching and releasing them for my mother at great personal risk.John L. Monk At Risk Sayings By John L. Monk: Growing up, I was the champion of spiders and moths in my house, catching and
You can't keep doing this," Liam added under his breath, "You've just gotta let it go."
Tears sprang to my eyes, and I wiped them away with backs of my hands.
"I know this isn't easy for you, but Grace wouldn't want you putting yourself at risk for them." He cupped my face in his hands and used his thumbs to wipe away fresh tears before they even had a chance to fall. "You're never going to win this. If you had a chance, they wouldn't bother playing."
"I know." And I did. There was no doubt in my mind that Liam was right. But that didn't make it any easier to give up.
Lisa Roecker At Risk Sayings By Lisa Roecker: You can't keep doing this," Liam added under his breath, "You've just gotta let it
I think in terms of educating a group of readers, MFA programs are very good. I just think the model of MFA programs in which a young poet goes through the program, publishes a series of books, gets teaching jobs, that's a bit at risk.Edward Hirsch At Risk Sayings By Edward Hirsch: I think in terms of educating a group of readers, MFA programs are very good.
I, on the other hand, am very concerned about how word choice will affect my readers. For instance, in the description of Genesis, I chose the term 'good and evil' instead of 'right and wrong', which are basically two same terms. I wanted to use 'right and wrong' because it definitely will ignite more controversies than 'good and evil', but I chose to use the latter because I was afraid of the social influence that can come from reading my book, and although there is no adult material at all in the book, I could risk getting my book banned.Andreas Laurencius At Risk Sayings By Andreas Laurencius: I, on the other hand, am very concerned about how word choice will affect my
Agnes subtracts from her self everything that is exterior and borrowed, in order to come closer to her sheer essence (even with the risk that zero lurks at the bottom of the subtraction). Laura's method is precisely the opposite: in order to make her self ever more visible, perceivable, seizable, sizeable, she keeps adding to it more and more attributes and she attempts to identify herself with them (with the risk that the essence of the self may be buried by the additional attributes).Milan Kundera At Risk Sayings By Milan Kundera: Agnes subtracts from her self everything that is exterior and borrowed, in order to come
You cannot immunize sick, malnourished children and expect them to get away with it. You'll kill far more children than would have died from natural infection ... It needs to be appreciated that children in developing countries are at a much greater risk of complications from vaccination and from mercury toxicity ... because poor nutrition, parasitic and bacterial infections and low birth weight.Archie Kalokerinos At Risk Sayings By Archie Kalokerinos: You cannot immunize sick, malnourished children and expect them to get away with it. You'll
The peace of our world is indivisible. As long as negative forces are getting the better of positive forces anywhere, we are all at risk.Aung San Suu Kyi At Risk Sayings By Aung San Suu Kyi: The peace of our world is indivisible. As long as negative forces are getting the
Come, Philander, let us be a marching, Every one his true love a searching,
Would be the most appropriate motto for this chapter, because, intimidated by the threats, denunciations, and complaints showered upon me in consequence of taking the liberty to end a certain story as I liked, I now yield to the amiable desire of giving satisfaction, and, at the risk of outraging all the unities, intend to pair off everybody I can lay my hands on.
Louisa May Alcott At Risk Sayings By Louisa May Alcott: Come, Philander, let us be a marching, Every one his true love a searching,Would be
But if you never did anything you couldn't undo you'd end up doing nothing at all.Anne Tyler At Risk Sayings By Anne Tyler: But if you never did anything you couldn't undo you'd end up doing nothing at
The great lesson here taught is for all time. Often the Christian life is beset by dangers, and duty seems hard to perform. The imagination pictures impending ruin before and bondage or death behind. Yet the voice of God speaks clearly, "Go forward." We should obey this command, even though our eyes cannot penetrate the darkness, and we feel the cold waves about our feet. The obstacles that hinder our progress will never disappear before a halting, doubting spirit. Those who defer obedience till every shadow of uncertainty disappears and there remains no risk of failure or defeat, will never obey at all. Unbelief whispers, "Let us wait till the obstructions are removed, and we can see our way clearly;" but faith courageously urges an advance, hoping all things, believing all things.Ellen G. White At Risk Sayings By Ellen G. White: The great lesson here taught is for all time. Often the Christian life is beset
And here's the shock
when you risk it, when you do the right thing, when you arrive at the borders of common sense and cross into unknown territory, leaving behind you all the familiar smells and lights, you do not experience great joy and huge energy.
You are unhappy. Things get worse.
It is a time of mourning. Loss. Fear. We bullet ourselves through with questions. And then we feel shot and wounded.
And then all the cowards come out and say, 'See, I told you so.'
In fact, they told you nothing.
Jeanette Winterson At Risk Sayings By Jeanette Winterson: And here's the shock when you risk it, when you do the right thing, when
In no other arena is the church at greater risk of losing its calling than in the public square.Philip Yancey At Risk Sayings By Philip Yancey: In no other arena is the church at greater risk of losing its calling than
We have gone forth from our shores repeatedly over the last hundred years and we've done this as recently as the last year in Afghanistan and put wonderful young men and women at risk, many of whom have lost their lives, and we have asked for nothing except enough ground to bury them in, and otherwise we have returned home to seek our own lives in peace.Colin Powell At Risk Sayings By Colin Powell: We have gone forth from our shores repeatedly over the last hundred years and we've
And for a moment Annie wondered at this, that her brother and sister, good, responsible, decent, fair-minded, had never known the passion that caused a person to risk everything they had, everything they held dear heedlessly put in danger - simply to be near the white dazzle of the sun that somehow for those moments seemed to leave the earth behind.Elizabeth Strout At Risk Sayings By Elizabeth Strout: And for a moment Annie wondered at this, that her brother and sister, good, responsible,
Secretary of State Colin Powell himself eloquently pointed out the many ways to get at the root of this problem-economic, diplomatic, legal and political, as well as military. A rush to launch precipitous military counterattacks runs too great a risk that more innocent men, women, children will be killed. I could not vote for a resolution that I believe could lead to such an outcome.Barbara Lee At Risk Sayings By Barbara Lee: Secretary of State Colin Powell himself eloquently pointed out the many ways to get at
I'm fighting for small businesses. I'm not fighting for big oil. Don't be confused. And there are thousands of businesses in this state that are at great risk. Meanwhile, the country keeps guzzling the oil, but we're out of work down here. We need to get back to work to build this region, and we intend to do so.Mary Landrieu At Risk Sayings By Mary Landrieu: I'm fighting for small businesses. I'm not fighting for big oil. Don't be confused. And
The way I see it, gold is headed over $1000 an ounce, probably much higher. At anywhere near current prices, it's the lowest risk, highest potential investment I can think of.Doug Casey At Risk Sayings By Doug Casey: The way I see it, gold is headed over $1000 an ounce, probably much higher.
The real heroes are the librarians and teachers who at no small risk to themselves refuse to lie down and play dead for censors.Bruce Coville At Risk Sayings By Bruce Coville: The real heroes are the librarians and teachers who at no small risk to themselves
There is plenty of misery in the world, all right, but there is ample pleasure, as well. If a person forswears pleasure in order to avoid misery, what has he gained? ... how can you admire a human who consciously embraces the bland, the mediocre, and the safe rather than risk the suffering that disappointments can bring? ... If desire causes suffering, it may be because we do not desire wisely, or that we are inexpert at obtaining what we desire ... why not get better at fulfilling desire? I cannot believe that the most delicious things were placed here merely to test us, to tempt us, to make it the more difficult for us to achieve the grand prize - they safety of the void. To fashion of life such a petty game is unworthy of both men and gods.Tom Robbins At Risk Sayings By Tom Robbins: There is plenty of misery in the world, all right, but there is ample pleasure,
I think if we're going to live in this - in this world - in this technological world where information can be disseminated so quickly, we have to be serious and take firm, strong action against those who are putting American lives at risk. Because this will put people's lives at risk.Peter T. King At Risk Sayings By Peter T. King: I think if we're going to live in this - in this world - in
If you really want a woman to love you, then you have to dance. And if you don't want to dance, then you're going to have to work extra hard to make a woman love you forever, and you will always run the risk that she will leave you at any second for a man who knows how to tango.Sherman Alexie At Risk Sayings By Sherman Alexie: If you really want a woman to love you, then you have to dance. And
Our national security is at risk when we rely on foreign oil to keep our economy moving forward.Bill Shuster At Risk Sayings By Bill Shuster: Our national security is at risk when we rely on foreign oil to keep our
Instead of thanking God for my two strong legs that are able to run and jump and climb, I whined about my "thunder thighs" and "thick" ankles. Instead of rejoicing that I have two capable arms that can lift and carry and balance my body, I complained about the flab that hung beneath them. I have been totally and unbelievably ungrateful for everything. Like a completely spoiled brat, I took my healthy body for granted. I criticized it and despised it. With crystal clarity, I know that I do not deserve the good health that God has mysteriously blessed me with. Not only have I been unappreciative of my body and its amazing working parts, I tortured it by overexercising, and I put my entire health at serious risk by starving myself. What on earth was wrong with me? As I watch these kids with their less-than-perfect bodies, I feel so thoroughly ashamed of myself. I mean, how could I have been so stupid and shallow and self-centered?Melody Carlson At Risk Sayings By Melody Carlson: Instead of thanking God for my two strong legs that are able to run and
As William James observed, we must reflect that, when we reach the end of our days, our life experience will equal what we have paid attention to, whether by choice or default. We are at risk, without quite fully realizing it, of living lives that are less our own than we imagine.Tim Wu At Risk Sayings By Tim Wu: As William James observed, we must reflect that, when we reach the end of our
There is much that public policy can do to support American entrepreneurs. Health insurance reform will make it easier for entrepreneurs to take a chance on a new business without putting their family's health at risk. Tort reform will make it easier to take prudent risks on new products in a number of sectors.Eric Ries At Risk Sayings By Eric Ries: There is much that public policy can do to support American entrepreneurs. Health insurance reform
If he have faith, the believer cannot be restrained. He betrays himself. He breaks out. He confesses and teaches this gospel to the people at the risk of life itself.Martin Luther At Risk Sayings By Martin Luther: If he have faith, the believer cannot be restrained. He betrays himself. He breaks out.
The image of the "presence," whatever it was, waiting there for him to go
this image had not yet been so concrete for his nerves as when he stopped short of the point at which certainty would have come to him. For, with all his resolution, or more exactly with all his dread, he did stop short
he hung back from really seeing. The risk was too great and his fear too definite: it took at this moment an awful specific form.
Henry James At Risk Sayings By Henry James: The image of the "presence," whatever it was, waiting there for him to gothis image
If there is heaven, atheists will be the first to put their foot there; they take time to find God personally. They risk losing everything when they decide He does not exist. While believers will swallow anything you throw at them to protect their own self-interests to get to heaven at all cost, atheists want a real God and I believe God will not disappoint such a genuine breed of human beings.Bangambiki Habyarimana At Risk Sayings By Bangambiki Habyarimana: If there is heaven, atheists will be the first to put their foot there; they
Spectators could, for an additional fee, sit on the stage - something not permitted at the Globe. With stage seating, audience members could show off their finery to maximum effect, and the practice was lucrative; but it contained an obvious risk of distraction. Stephen Greenblatt relates an occasion in which a nobleman who had secured a perch on the stage spied a friend entering across the way and strode through the performance to greet him. When rebuked by an actor for his thoughtlessness, the nobleman slapped the impertinent fellow and the audience rioted.Bill Bryson At Risk Sayings By Bill Bryson: Spectators could, for an additional fee, sit on the stage - something not permitted at
Clothed in the majesty of the law one may get away with murder, but lacking the law's prestige one defends himself at the risk of life and liberty.J. Sidna Allen At Risk Sayings By J. Sidna Allen: Clothed in the majesty of the law one may get away with murder, but lacking
I don't want to live in a world where the strong rule and the weak cower. I'd rather make a place where things are a little quieter. Where trolls stay the hell under their bridges and where elves don't come swooping out to snatch children from their cradles. Where vampires respect the limits, and where the faeries mind their p's and q's. My name is Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. Conjure by it at your own risk. When things get strange, when what goes bump in the night flicks on the lights, when no one else can help you, give me a call. I'm in the book.Jim Butcher At Risk Sayings By Jim Butcher: I don't want to live in a world where the strong rule and the weak
Flu is easily transmitted, so if you are working with sick people - who are most at risk for getting seriously ill - you ought to be vaccinated. I am not really equipped to say whether it should be the law or not.Michael Specter At Risk Sayings By Michael Specter: Flu is easily transmitted, so if you are working with sick people - who are
Mr. Nobley: "Then I must stay?"
Miss Erstwhile: "Unless you want to risk me accusing you of ungentleman-like behavior at dinner, yes, I think you should stay. If I spend too much time alone today, I'm in real danger of doing a convincing impersonation of the madwoman in the attic."
Mr. Nobley: He raised an eyebrow. "And how would that be different from-"
Miss Esrtwhile: "Sit down Mr. Nobely", she said.
Hale Shannon At Risk Sayings By Hale Shannon: Mr. Nobley: "Then I must stay?"Miss Erstwhile: "Unless you want to risk me accusing you
He was no Hitchcockian protagonist, embroiled in a conspiracy before he knew what was happening. He had embroiled himself, knowing full well that it contained an element of risk. The machine was already in motion, gaining too much forward momentum for him to stop it. Tengo himself was one of its gears - and an important one at that. He could hear the machine's low groaning, and feel its implacable motion.Haruki Murakami At Risk Sayings By Haruki Murakami: He was no Hitchcockian protagonist, embroiled in a conspiracy before he knew what was happening.
Look at the Palestinians with the huge, huge percentage of unemployed. What does that breed? Anyone who's unemployed in the world, you feel there's no meaning and there's a risk that you drift over to something desperate. Yes, we have to tackle the social problems as well.Hans Blix At Risk Sayings By Hans Blix: Look at the Palestinians with the huge, huge percentage of unemployed. What does that breed?
People were intrinsically selfish, and many hated the idea of a woman in charge of the Institute. They would not put themselves at risk for her. Only a few weeks ago he would have said the same thing about himself. Now, knowing Charlotte, he realized to his surprise, the idea of risking himself for her seemed an honor, as it would be to most Englishmen to risk themselves for the queen.Cassandra Clare At Risk Sayings By Cassandra Clare: People were intrinsically selfish, and many hated the idea of a woman in charge of
To reach only for that which pleasantly enchants you is the least of imagination, if even imagination at all, by the obvious reality of remaining within your means. The greater of imagination is parallel to risk. It extends beyond your comfort zone or haven, or sense of beauty, or what you personally believe suits you in exploration of what may not.Criss Jami At Risk Sayings By Criss Jami: To reach only for that which pleasantly enchants you is the least of imagination, if
As he gazed at the sun-darkened warriors, battle-worn before him, he decided that he would rather fight a hundred enemies than have to stand up in public and risk the disapproval of others.Christopher Paolini At Risk Sayings By Christopher Paolini: As he gazed at the sun-darkened warriors, battle-worn before him, he decided that he would
But it's not even anything," Heather said, glancing miserably at the door. "It's just a chance." "The chance to be happy." "Or the chance to be heartbroken, like you?" "The chance to be alive. To be ... Heather, forget everything I said before. It's worth it. Do you think I wouldn't risk everything to bring Neal to that door right now? That's how it works. You keep risking everything. And you keep hoping you can keep him from walking away.Rainbow Rowell At Risk Sayings By Rainbow Rowell: But it's not even anything," Heather said, glancing miserably at the door. "It's just a
As gun owners, my husband and I understand that the Second Amendment is most at risk when a criminal or deranged person commits a gun crime. These acts only embolden those who oppose gun ownership. Promoting responsible gun laws protects the Second Amendment and reduces lives lost from guns.Gabrielle Giffords At Risk Sayings By Gabrielle Giffords: As gun owners, my husband and I understand that the Second Amendment is most at
And at the risk of sounding like Andy Rooney on Sixty Minutes, have you ever wondered why we say fiddle-faddle and not faddle- fiddle? Why is it ping-pong and pitter-patter rather than pong-ping and patter-pitter? Why dribs and drabs, rather than vice versa? Why can't a kitchen be span and spic? Whence riff-raff, mish-mash, flim-flam, chit-chat, tit for tat, knick-knack, zig-zag, sing-song, ding-dong, King Kong, criss-cross, shilly-shally, see-saw, hee-haw, flip-flop, hippity-hop, tick-tock, tic-tac-toe, eeny-meeny-miney-moe, bric-a-brac, clickety-clack, hickory-dickory-dock, kit and kaboodle, and bibbity-bobbity-boo? The answer is that the vowels for which the tongue is high and in the front always come before the vowels for which the tongue is low and in the back.Steven Pinker At Risk Sayings By Steven Pinker: And at the risk of sounding like Andy Rooney on Sixty Minutes, have you ever
I was twenty one years old and I thought, here I am my health is at risk, my life is going to go down hill from here and I really had to have a look in the mirror to see what the cause was of that and the cause of that was me.John Assaraf At Risk Sayings By John Assaraf: I was twenty one years old and I thought, here I am my health is
Passing from legality to subversion, the need of finding a minimum stimulus with a maximum effect appears - an effect that through its impact justifies the risk taken and pays for it. During certain historical periods, at the level of the object, this meant dealing with and creating mysteries. At the level of situations, and in this case, it means the change of social structure.Luis Camnitzer At Risk Sayings By Luis Camnitzer: Passing from legality to subversion, the need of finding a minimum stimulus with a maximum
If we're highly empathetic and emotionally sensitive we're at greater risk of becoming involved with a manipulator.Adelyn Birch At Risk Sayings By Adelyn Birch: If we're highly empathetic and emotionally sensitive we're at greater risk of becoming involved with
I didn't know with certainty what to say about the large world, and didn't care to risk speculating. And I still don't. That we all look at it from someplace, and in some hopeful-useful way, is about all I found I could say
my best, most honest effort. And that isn't enough for literature, though it didn't bother me much. Nowadays, I'm willing to say yes to as much as I can: yes to my town, my neighborhood, my neighbor, yes to his car, her lawn and hedge and rain gutters. Let things be the best they can be. Give us all a good night's sleep until it's over.
Richard Ford At Risk Sayings By Richard Ford: I didn't know with certainty what to say about the large world, and didn't care
You want to provide as many opportunities and help rural schools as much as you can. But you can't do it at the risk of affecting any of the quality standards and educational opportunities for any child, regardless of where they live and regardless of what the size of their school is.Mike Beebe At Risk Sayings By Mike Beebe: You want to provide as many opportunities and help rural schools as much as you
If you really want to be secure, you will have to live a life of insecurity. If you really want to be alive, you will have to be ready to die at any moment. This is the illogic of life! If you want to be authentically true, then you will have to risk. Repression is a way to avoid the risk. ForOsho At Risk Sayings By Osho: If you really want to be secure, you will have to live a life of
How have those in power led armies to kill people they don't know for centuries, always at the risk of their lives? By telling them God wants them to do it. By telling them that the country is depending on them.Sean Platt At Risk Sayings By Sean Platt: How have those in power led armies to kill people they don't know for centuries,
You never know you're making a mistake until it's too late. Sometimes we know we're taking a risk, but we always hope for the best. We hope that our mistakes will be forgiven, or at least forgotten. We hope that our mistakes will teach us something. Sometimes, unfortunately, mistakes are just mistakes that can't be undone or forgotten.Cassia Leo At Risk Sayings By Cassia Leo: You never know you're making a mistake until it's too late. Sometimes we know we're
The other kids at school seemed to carry some inner map of where they were going, who they were becoming, that stabilized them through all the outward transformations, but Richard, the world's first 6'3" thirteen-year-old, felt as if he'd been cast into the wilderness without so much as a stick of gum.Garth Risk Hallberg At Risk Sayings By Garth Risk Hallberg: The other kids at school seemed to carry some inner map of where they were
One day she marched around the side of the house and confronted me. "I've seen you out there every day for the past week, and everyone knows you stare at me all day in school, if you have something you want to say to me why don't you just say it to my face instead of sneaking around like a crook?" I considered my options. Either I could run away and never go back to school again, maybe even leave the country as a stowaway on a ship bound for Australia. Or I could risk everything and confess to her. The answer was obvious: I was going to Australia. I opened my mouth to say goodbye forever. And yet. What I said was: I want to know if you'll marry me.Nicole Krauss At Risk Sayings By Nicole Krauss: One day she marched around the side of the house and confronted me. "I've seen
We are now at risk of having a zombie democracy roaming around a one-party state.Jeremy Corbyn At Risk Sayings By Jeremy Corbyn: We are now at risk of having a zombie democracy roaming around a one-party state.
Peace talk when war is impending is hazardous for the talker, and in war time it is criminal. War talk in peace time, which is infinitely more wicked, runs no risk at all.Charles Clayton Morrison At Risk Sayings By Charles Clayton Morrison: Peace talk when war is impending is hazardous for the talker, and in war time
It is inconceivable that, in the richest nation in the world, we have 30 million people at risk of hunger. I believe that, if we truly make a commitment as a nation, we can defeat hunger.Bo Derek At Risk Sayings By Bo Derek: It is inconceivable that, in the richest nation in the world, we have 30 million
We are at risk of trying to make food too sophisticated as we move along, changing ingredients to follow what's in vogue.Anonymous At Risk Sayings By Anonymous: We are at risk of trying to make food too sophisticated as we move along,
My volcano of compress anger was about to erupt in school, and it would take more than five years for my molten lava to be brought under control, which was through the loss of my sight. However, shouldn't there be a way of detecting and reaching out to kids like me before there is a massive problem? Why wait until there is a devastating eruption before we intervene?Drexel Deal At Risk Sayings By Drexel Deal: My volcano of compress anger was about to erupt in school, and it would take
To refer even in passing to unpublished or struggling authors and their problems is to put oneself at some risk, so I will say here and now that any unsolicited manuscripts or typescripts sent to me will be destroyed unread. You must make your way yourself. Why you should be so set on the nearly always disappointing profession is a puzzling question.Kingsley Amis At Risk Sayings By Kingsley Amis: To refer even in passing to unpublished or struggling authors and their problems is to
I will give you this, my love, and I will not bargain or barter any longer. I will love you, as sure as He has loved me. I will discover what I can discover and though you remain a mystery, save God's own knowledge, what I disclose of you I will keep in the warmest chamber of my heart, the very chamber where God has stowed Himself in me. And I will do this to my death, and to death it may bring me.
I will love you like God, because of God, mighted by the power of God. I will stop expecting your love, demanding you love, trading for your love, gaming for your love. I will simply love. I am giving myself to you, and tomorrow I will do it again. I suppose the clock itself will wear thin its time before I am ended at this altar of dying and dying again.
God risked Himself on me. I will risk myself on you. And together, we will learn to love, and perhaps then, and only then, understand this gravity that drew Him, unto us.

Unconditional love is not affirming another in every decision they make especially when those choices are unhealthy. Unconditional love will risk offending in the name of genuine concern. It will risk relationship for the ultimate well-being of the other. To indiscriminately affirm the unhealthy choices of others is not love at all but perhaps the worst kind of fraud.Michael M. Rose At Risk Sayings By Michael M. Rose: Unconditional love is not affirming another in every decision they make especially when those choices
(1) Risk-taking behavior, essential for efforts at innovation, is more widespread in some societies than in others. (2) The scientific outlook is a unique feature of post-Renaissance European society that has contributed heavily to its modern technological preeminence. (3) Tolerance of diverse views and of heretics fosters innovation, whereas a strongly traditional outlook (as in China's emphasis on ancient Chinese classics) stifles it. (4) Religions vary greatly in their relation to technological innovation: some branches of Judaism and Christianity are claimed to be especially compatible with it, while some branches of Islam, Hinduism, and Brahmanism may be especially incompatible with it.Jared Diamond At Risk Sayings By Jared Diamond: (1) Risk-taking behavior, essential for efforts at innovation, is more widespread in some societies than
I mention Jackie mostly because I want to be assured that I inhabit the same universe as other people; that I am not alone on a distant shore. Jackie glues me to this world - most effectively when I can find a way to mention her name or her attributes, when I can find a pretext, however frail, to introduce her into a conversation, even at the risk of non sequitur, bathos, or incoherence.Wayne Koestenbaum At Risk Sayings By Wayne Koestenbaum: I mention Jackie mostly because I want to be assured that I inhabit the same
Do not accept principal risk while investing short-term cash: the greedy effort to earn a few extra basis points of yield inevitably leads to the incurrence of greater risk, which increases the likelihood of losses and severe illiquidity at precisely the moment when cash is needed to cover expenses, to meet commitments, or to make compelling long-term investments.Seth Klarman At Risk Sayings By Seth Klarman: Do not accept principal risk while investing short-term cash: the greedy effort to earn a
When an executive walked on our floor, it was at their own risk. As far as what others thought of working for me, I know I was very tough at times, and would storm down the hall after watching some bad animation from Korea. But overall, I feel we had a good time.Joe Murray At Risk Sayings By Joe Murray: When an executive walked on our floor, it was at their own risk. As far
The law has placed the collective force at the disposal of the unscrupulous who wish, without risk, to exploit the person, liberty, and property of others. It has converted plunder into a right, in order to protect plunder. And it has converted lawful defense into a crime, in order to punish lawful defense ... When, then, does plunder stop? It stops when it becomes more painful and more dangerous than labor.Frederic Bastiat At Risk Sayings By Frederic Bastiat: The law has placed the collective force at the disposal of the unscrupulous who wish,
I had to make a guess about what would be right and what would be wrong for her. I had to take a risk. I based the risk on what I know of loneliness, of the need of closeness in loneliness. I stroked her, totally impersonal, the way you soothe a terrified animal. At first she would leap and buck at the slightest touch. After a while there was only a tremor when I touched her, and finally that too was gone. She hiccuped and at last fell down into sleep, curled and spent.John D. MacDonald At Risk Sayings By John D. MacDonald: I had to make a guess about what would be right and what would be
He'd have made billions on this," Eve added.
"Grossed."
"I'll say it's gross."
"No, no." It was a relief to laugh. "Gross income. It would cost-has to cost enormously to run the labs, develop the technology, the school, the network. The net income would be substantial, I'd think, but Eve, the cost, the risk? I think you're looking at a labor of love.

First, can fetal or childhood exposure to synthetic glucocorticoids have lifelong, adverse effects? Glucocorticoids (such as hydrocortisone) are prescribed in vast amounts, because of their immunosuppressive or anti-inflammatory effects. During pregnancy, they are administered to women with certain endocrine disorders or who are at risk for delivering preterm. Heavy administration of them during pregnancy has been reported to result in children with smaller head circumferences, emotional and behavioral problems in childhood, and slowing of some developmental landmarks. Are these effects lifelong? No one knows.Robert M. Sapolsky At Risk Sayings By Robert M. Sapolsky: First, can fetal or childhood exposure to synthetic glucocorticoids have lifelong, adverse effects? Glucocorticoids (such
This was true enough, though it did not throw any light upon my perplexity. If we had heard of it to start with, it is possible that all the family would have considered the possession of a ghost a distinct advantage. It is the fashion of the times. We never think what a risk it is to play with young imaginations, but cry out, in the fashionable jargon, 'A ghost! - nothing else was wanted to make it perfect.' I should not have been above this myself. I should have smiled, of course, at the idea of the ghost at all, but then to feel that it was mine would have pleased my vanity. Oh, yes, I claim no exemption. The girls would have been delighted. I could fancy their eagerness, their interest, and excitement. No; if we had been told, it would have done no good - we should have made the bargain all the more eagerly, the fools that we are. ("The Open Door")Mrs. Oliphant At Risk Sayings By Mrs. Oliphant: This was true enough, though it did not throw any light upon my perplexity. If
If we have to know without a doubt that the choices we are making are the perfect ones, we risk never making any choices at all.Marcus Buckingham At Risk Sayings By Marcus Buckingham: If we have to know without a doubt that the choices we are making are
I'm still of the same mind. For many years I've been ashamed, mortally ashamed, of having been, even with the best intentions, even at many removes, a murderer in my turn. As time went on, I merely learned that even those who were better than the rest could not keep themselves nowadays from killing or letting others kill, because such is the logic by which they live, and that we can't stir a finger in this world without the risk of bringing death to somebody. Yes, I've been ashamed ever since I have realized that we all have the plague, and I have lost my peace. And today I am still trying to find it; still trying to understand all those others and not to be the mortal enemy of anyone. I only know that one must do what one can to cease being plague stricken, and that's the only way in which we can hope for some peace or, failing that, a decent death.Albert Camus At Risk Sayings By Albert Camus: I'm still of the same mind. For many years I've been ashamed, mortally ashamed, of
If I limit myself to knowledge that I consider true beyond doubt, I minimize the risk of error but I maximize, at the same time, the risk of missing out on what may be the subtlest, most important and most rewarding things in life.E.F.

(On a personal note, even though I have a professional interest in hazard and risk, I never watch the local television news and haven't for years. Try this and you'll likely find better things to do before going to sleep than looking at thirty minutes of disturbing images presented with artificial urgency and the usually false implication that it's critical for you to see it.)Gavin De Becker At Risk Sayings By Gavin De Becker: (On a personal note, even though I have a professional interest in hazard and risk,
For people who are depressed, and especially for those who do not receive enough benefit from medication of for whom the side effects of antidepressants are troubling, the fact that placebos can duplicate much of the effects of antidepressants should be taken as good news. It means that there are other ways of alleviating depression. As we have seen, treatments like psychotherapy and physical exercise are at least as effective as antidepressant drugs and more effective than placebos. In particular, CBT has been shown to lower the risk of relapsing into depression for years after treatment has ended, making it particularly cost effective.Irving Kirsch At Risk Sayings By Irving Kirsch: For people who are depressed, and especially for those who do not receive enough benefit
It was too much happiness. Happiness puts you at too much risk - what if you were to lose it? Too much happiness is a paradox.

I don't want a boyfriend just for the sake of it. I don't trust most people out there. There's too much at risk and I don't need to be a notch on somebody's bedpost. I'll flirt with you all night long, but then it's buh, bye!Mariah Carey At Risk Sayings By Mariah Carey: I don't want a boyfriend just for the sake of it. I don't trust most
But Terry doesn't touch her, won't touch her, never touches her. In a decade of knowing her, he has kept her at a friendly distance, even in his imagination, has never once considered allowing her into his sexual fantasies. There would be no harm in such a thing, yet he senses he would be placing something at risk all the same. What he would be placing at risk, he cannot say. To Terry the word "soul" first refers to a kind of music.Joe Hill At Risk Sayings By Joe Hill: But Terry doesn't touch her, won't touch her, never touches her. In a decade of
The tamer my love, the farther away it is from love. In fierceness, in heat, in longing, in risk, I find something of love's nature. In my desire for you, I burn at the right temperature to walk through love's fire. So when you ask me why I cannot love you more calmly, I answer that to love you calmly is not to love you at all.Jeanette Winterson At Risk Sayings By Jeanette Winterson: The tamer my love, the farther away it is from love. In fierceness, in heat,

When God lets loose a great thinker on this planet, then all things are at risk.

I do not say that all lawyers are bad, but I do maintain that the general tendency is bad: standing up in a court for whichever side has paid you, affecting warmth and conviction, and doing everything you can to win the case, whatever your private opinion may be, will soon dull any fine sense of honour. The mercenary soldier is not a valued creature, but at least he risks his life, whereas these men merely risk their next fee.Patrick O'Brian At Risk Sayings By Patrick O'Brian: I do not say that all lawyers are bad, but I do maintain that the

This was why trusting boys was just like drinking and driving. Sure, some people too the risk. One or two beers never feels dangerous at the time.

A nation not of men but of laws, intoned John Adams as he, among other lawyers, launched what has easily become the most demented society ever consciously devised by intelligent men. We are now enslaves by laws. We are governed by lawyers. We create little but litigate much. Our monuments are the ever-expanding prisons, where millions languish for having committed victimless crimes or for simply not playing the game of plausible deniability (aka lying) with a sufficiently good legal team. What began as a sort of Restoration comedy, The Impeachment of a President, on a frivolous, irrelevant matter, is suddenly turning very black indeed, and all our political arrangements are at risk as superstitious Christian fundamentalists and their corporate manipulators seem intent on overthrowing two presidential elections in a Senate trial. This is no longer comedy. This is usurpation.Gore Vidal At Risk Sayings By Gore Vidal: A nation not of men but of laws, intoned John Adams as he, among other
As a young man he had not dared risk God's wrath by questioning His purpose. Now he did not give a damn. Fuck it. There was no Paradise and there was no Hell and if there was a God, He was worse than inscrutable.
