A valiant man Ought not to undergo, or tempt a danger, But worthily, and by selected ways, He undertakes with reason, not by chance. His valor is the salt t his other virtues, Theyre all unseasond without it. Ben JonsonNew Inn. Act IV. Sc. 3.
Hes truly valiant that can suffer wisely The worst that man can breathe and make his wrongs His outsides, to wear them like his raiment, carelessly; And neer prefer his injuries to his heart. To bring it into danger. Timon of Athens. Act III. Sc. 5. L. 31.
