Prudence Quotes

"I consider it a mark of great prudence in a man to abstain from threats or any contemptuous expressions, for neither of these weaken the enemy, but threats make him more cautious, and the other excites his hatred, and a desire to revenge himself."
Niccolo Machiavelli

"Affairs are easier of entrance than of exit; and it is but common prudence to see our way out before we venture in."
Aesop
