James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Smollett
 
  Deep in the frozen regions of the north, / A goddess violated brought thee forth, / immortal liberty.  1
  Glory is the fair child of peril.  2
  Lord of the lion heart and eagle eye, / Thy steps I follow with my bosom bare, / Nor heed the storm that howls along the sky.  3
  Nobody would be afraid if he could help it.  4
  Ridiculous modes, invented by ignorance and adopted by folly.  5
  The blast that blows loudest is soon overblown.  6
  Thy spirit, Independence, let me share; / Lord of the lion-heart and eagle-eye! / Thy steps I follow with my bosom bare, / Nor heed the storm that howls along the sky!  7
  What though success will not attend on all! / Who bravely dares must sometimes risk a fall.  8
  Who bravely dares must sometimes risk a fall.  9
