    • "Fortune does favor the audacious".

      This may be a quotation from the scholar Desiderius Erasmus (1465-1536). However, further back, it is attributed to Virgil (70-19 B.C.) as the line "Fortune favors the brave". Still further back, Terence (Publius Terentius Afer, 190-159 B.C.) wrote it as "Fortune helps the brave". Whomever started it, the line is best known as "Fortune favors the bold."
