Boldness is ever blind, for it sees not dangers and inconveniences; whence it is bad in council though good in execution.—The right use of the bold, therefore, is, that they never command in chief, but serve as seconds under the direction of others.—For in council it is good to see dangers, and in execution not to see them unless they be very great.
We make way for the man who boldly pushes past us.
Fortune befriends the bold.
Carried away by the irresistible influence which is always exercised over men's minds by a bold resolution in critical circumstances.
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
It is wonderful what strength of purpose and boldness and energy of will are roused by the assurance that we are doing our duty.
Who bravely dares must sometimes risk a fall.
