Quotable: Neruda on risk-taking


“They die slowly who transform themselves into slaves of their habits,
who never risk,
who evade a passion,
who never risk the certain
for the uncertain….
who abandon things before starting them,
who complain of their bad luck,
who don’t travel, don’t read, don’t dream,
who don’t trust, who don’t try,
who don’t love…
the opposite is to be alive.”

— Pablo Neruda
