We are noted for being at once adventurous in action & most reflective before hand.  Other men are bold in ignorance while reflection will stop their onset, but the bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet not withstanding go out to meet it.  " Thucydides"
