I like that one, too! :)
I have a favourite one about risk in my quotes archive but it's a little long:

If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid
with regard to external things. Don't wish to be thought to know
anything; and even if you appear to be somebody important to others,
distrust yourself. For, it is difficult to both keep your faculty of
choice in a state conformable to nature, and at the same time acquire
external things. But while you are careful about the one, you must of
necessity neglect the other.

-- Epictetus

I might just have to add that in there, too! :o)
