One should take calculated risks, but not needless ones
A white man had gone to Africa as a tourist. He saw a lovely lake between two villages. The water was tempting. He took off his clothes and took a clean dive. Effortlessly, he swam across to the opposite side where he was greeted by a group of villagers who gazed at him in open-mouthed amazement. The moment he climbed up on the opposite bank, the locals started clapping vigorously and chanted, White man's powerful magic!White man's mighty magic! The tourist was flattered but hastened to correct them. It is no magic. It is called butterfly stroke. It is not difficult at all. I can even teach you how to swim butterfly strokes!
The chief said in a respectful voice, Oh Sir! Butterfly stroke, breast stroke, free stroke, we know it all. But it needs a white man's magic to plunge into a pond with a hundred crocodiles and escape without a scratch. The white man spent the whole day searching a way to go round the lake to fetch his clothes!
A survivor takes only calculated risks and never needless ones. A survivor is a responsible person he is not a kid who eats a bunch of green chillies to impress the girl next door.
