it is bette to participate in life and lose then to just sit passively by and do nothing

Round 1
Pro
Think of all the old people , in their hospital beds on opiates and in a diaper as their memories fade thinking" i had a comfortable life i never took chances  i never lost big i provided for my family , but what if if i had gone for it what if i had taken that chance... and lost? 

screw that just do it the worst regret is never to know ,as far as we know we only live once, its bette to go for gusto , fire all your guns, let lose, and lose big, than stand on the side lines silently afraid of failure
i embrace my failures it reminds me of what the IRA  said to Margret Thatcher after a botch bombing attempt

The IRA claimed responsibility the next day, and said that it would try again. Its statement read:
Mrs. Thatcher will now realise that Britain cannot occupy our country and torture our prisoners and shoot our people in their own streets and get away with it. Today we were unlucky, but remember we only have to be lucky once. You will have to be lucky always. Give Ireland peace and there will be no more war.[12]

You gotta love the Irish god know i do

May I ever so politely point out my conduct vs the conduct of my opponent who forfeited , tis better to experience life and fail than to never even try, how fun is it to sit on the side line thinking"i could do that?" when you can just do it??? right?

To love and lose gives you bad things in return. To never have loved ever doesn't even stop you learning from the mistakes of others around you and studying research on relationships and psychology etc, it simply lets you not have said drawbacks.
