The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
Part I
 
Hazard
 
 
261. In all Business it is best to put nothing to hazard: But where it is unavoidable, be not rash, but firm and resign’d.  1
  262. We should not be troubled for what we cannot help: But if it was our Fault, let it be so no more. Amendment is Repentance, if not Reparation.  2
  263. As a Desperate Game needs an able Gamester, so Consideration often would prevent, what the best skill in the World Cannot Recover.  3
  264. Where the Probability of Advantage exceeds not that of Loss, Wisdom never Adventures.  4
  265. To Shoot well Flying is well; but to Chose it, has more of Vanity than Judgment.  5
  266. To be Dextrous in Danger is a Virtue; but to Court Danger to show it, is Weakness.  6
