Fear nothing but what thy industry may prevent be confident of nothing but what fortune cannot defeat it is no less folly to fear what is impossible to be avoided than to be secure when there is a possibility to be deprived.
More Francis Quarles quotes :
Let the fear of danger be a spur to prevent it; he that fears not, gives advantage to the danger.Francis Quarles
Beware of him that is slow to anger; for when it is long coming, it is the stronger when it comes, and the longer kept. Abused patience turns to fury.Francis Quarles
