Virgil on Boldness

November 10, 2020 pwm1

Fortune favors the bold.

— Virgil (Public Domain)

We look back on our lives and consider the actions we should have taken but did not. What would have happened had we chosen the more daring route? What is the worst that could have happened? The older we get, the more we put our past actions into perspective; and the more we realize that taking the bolder path was probably the right choice. We can’t change the past, but we fully control what actions we take going forward. What do we have to lose by being a bit more adventuresome?

—Mike Hazell
