Nothing ventured, nothing gained 英文諺語
Nothing ventured, nothing gained 不入虎穴，焉得虎子
If you do not take risks, you will never accomplish anything. It means if you never take risks or try anything, you will never gain the rewards of that risk. In other words, say if you wanna ask someone out, if you sit back and never go for it, you may miss a great relationship. Or, you wanna invest in the stock market, but never go for it. If the stock you were gonna invest in, gains, you will never reap those monetary benefits, because you didn’t go for it.
One must take risks to achieve something, as in ‘They quit their jobs, packed up, and moved to Wisconsin, saying “nothing ventured, nothing gained.”’
