  1. peril

    Danger is exposure to possible evil, which may be either near and probable or remote and doubtful; peril is exposure to imminent and sharply threatening evil, especially to such as results from violence. An invalid may be in danger of consumption; a disarmed soldier is in peril of death. Jeopardy is nearly the same as peril, but involves, like risk, more of the element of chance or uncertainty; a man tried upon a capital charge is said to be put in jeopardy of life. Insecurity is a feeble word, but exceedingly broad, applying to the placing of a dish, or the possibilities of a life, a fortune, or a government. Compare HAZARD.

  2. Erik Pevernagie:

    We may do well to be attentive to the good and the bad vibrations in life. Since elephants use their feet to listen to vibrations and thus capture significant codes of impending peril, they might coach humans and teach them how to become “surefooted” in hazardous times. Keeping feet on the ground, however, should not hinder us from flying high and reaching soaring heights. ("Trompe le pied.")
