C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Boldness
 
  Fortune befriends the bold.
Dryden.    
  1
  Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
Pope.    
  2
  We make way for the man who boldly pushes past us.
Bovee.    
  3
  Carried away by the irresistible influence which is always exercised over men’s minds by a bold resolution in critical circumstances.
Guizot.    
  4
  It deserves to be considered that 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 bold persons, 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 are very great.
Bacon.
