Daily Thoughts from Jean Vanier - 9/4/09

// Jean Vanier English



To live is to risk

We must learn how to look into our fears because we cannot let ourselves be controlled by fear. We have to look our fears right in the face, and we can’t always do it by ourselves. We need to be helped, because if we can’t look death and failure in the face, well, then we can never live because to live means to risk, to do things, to have projects that might fail, that might go wrong.

- - Jean Vanier, Encountering the Other, p. 27, quoted in Jean Vanier: Essential Writings
