“Leave your luck while still winning. A fine retreat is as good as a gallant attack…The higher the heap of luck, the greater the risk of a slip…Fortune pays you sometimes for the intensity of her favors by the shortness of their duration.”
— Balthasar Gracian 1601 – 1658 CE via Joseph Jacobs, chapter #38
