If a little knowledge is dangerous, where is the man who has so much as to be out of danger?
We triumph without glory when we conquer without danger.
Beware of meat twice boiled, and an old foe reconciled.
O’er the ice the rapid skater flies, With sport above and death below, Where mischief lurks in gay disguise Thus lightly touch and quickly go.
It is better to meet danger than to wait for it. He that is on a lee shore, and foresees a hurricane, stands out to sea and encounters a storm to avoid a shipwreck.
During the first period of a man’s life the greatest danger is: not to take the risk. When once the risk has really been taken, then the greatest danger is to risk too much.
Let the fear of a danger be a spur to prevent it; he that fears not, gives advantage to the danger.
The world is always burning, burning with the fire of greed, anger and ignorance; one should flee from such dangers as soon as possible.
Danger – if you meet it promptly and without flinching – you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
