A revolution in humanity’s use of fossil fuel-based energy would be necessary sooner or later to sustain and to extend modern standards of living.

Ross Garnaut - Climate Change - Emissions - Revolution - Energy - Fossil Fuel - Risk - Change - Sustainable

Great talents are the most lovely and often the most dangerous fruits on the tree of humanity. They hang upon the most slender twigs that are easily snapped off.

A man does what he must.. in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers, and pressures.. and that is the basis of all human morality.

A real entrepreneur is somebody who has no safety net underneath them.
Henry Kravis - Entrepreneurs - Risk

Banks and other providers of credit to households have been competing vigorously to expand or protect their market share. In the process, lending standards have been progressively eroded so that lenders are now engaging in practices that would have been regarded as out of the question five or ten years ago.

George Soros - Mortgage - Finance - Risk - Bonds

Brian Tracy - Action - Luck - Risk

Every day, you'll have opportunities to take chances and to work outside your safety net. Sure, it's a lot easier to stay in your comfort zone.. in my case, business suits and real estate.. but sometimes you have to take risks. When the risks pay off, that's when you reap the biggest rewards.
Donald Trump - Business - Real Estate - Opportunity - Risk

Sam Zell - Decisions - Opportunity - Interested - Risk - Buying
