We fear things in proportion to our ignorance of them.

Not many men have both good fortune and good sense.
Persevere in virtue and diligence.
No wickedness proceeds on any grounds of reason.
Events of great consequence often spring from trifling circumstances.
In great straits and when hope is small, the boldest counsels are the safest.
Thus, if there is anyone who is confident that he can advise me as to the best advantage of the state in this campaign which I am about to conduct, let him not refuse his services to the state, but come with me into Macedonia. I will furnish him with his sea-passage, with a horse, a tent, and even travel-funds. If anyone is reluctant to do this and prefers the leisure of the city to the hardships of campaigning, let him not steer the ship from on shore.
In grave difficulties, and with little hope, the boldest measures are the safest.
