Caution Quotes

Caution is the barrier that prevents one from advancing ahead. When one treads in caution, it prevents one from taking risks, which is the prerequisite for success. The only reason that humankind has advanced so successfully in this world is because of their desire to take risks by throwing caution to the winds. Understand that stepping back, looking around and waiting for opportunity instead of going and grabbing one will take you nowhere. Instead, be wise enough to remove the veil of caution and risk action.
