About Risks, in French

Qui ne risque rien n’a rien.

– French proverb

Literally, “who risks nothing, gains nothing”. I got this proverb out of a really terrible novel about a girl who ‘finds herself’ in Paris (so terribly I don’t even remember the title), but I liked the proverb enough to paint it on a t-shirt. It’s true – sometimes you just got to take the risk, even though it’s scary. I need to remember that sometimes.

UPDATE: If you want a much better story about a girl who travels to Paris, check out my novella, Paris in Clichés
