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.
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.
In time of danger it is proper to be alarmed until danger be near at hand; but when we perceive that danger is near, we should oppose it as if we were not afraid.
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.
The world is always burning, burning with the fire of greed, anger and ignorance; one should flee from such dangers as soon as possible.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Let the fear of a danger be a spur to prevent it; he that fears not, gives advantage to the danger.
In fighting and in everyday life you should be determined though calm. Meet the situation without tenseness yet not recklessly, your spirit settled yet unbiased… An elevated spirit is weak and a low spirit is weak. Do not let the enemy see your spirit.
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.
