He is the furthest from danger, who is on his guard even when in safety
Danger comes on us more speedily when we treat it with contempt
A small leak can sink a great ship
A common danger unites even the bitterest enemies
Believe me! The secret of reaping the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment from life is to live dangerously!
Live dangerously and you live right
In counsel it is good to see dangers; but in execution not to see them unless they be very great
As soon as there is life, there is danger
Constant exposure to dangers will breed contempt for them
Be wary of the man who urges an action in which he himself incurs no risk

Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
