Boldness
 
  This is well to be weighed, that boldness is ever blind; for it seeth not dangers and inconveniences: therefore it is ill in council, good in execution; so that the right use of bold persons is, that they never command in chief, but be seconds, and under the direction of others: for in counsel it is good to see dangers, and in execution not to see them, except they be very great.
Francis Bacon: Essay XII., Of Boldness.

  Audacity doth almost bind and mate the weaker sort of minds.
Francis Bacon.

  A kind imagination makes a bold man have vigour and enterprise in his air and motion: it stamps value upon his face, and tells the people he is to go for so much.
Jeremy Collier.

  The bold and sufficient pursue their game with more passion, endeavour, and application, and therefore often succeed.
Sir William Temple.
