„There are worser ills to face
Than foemen in the fray;
And many a man has fought because—
He feared to run away.“

—  Richard Hovey, Act. iv. Sc. 3.

„To withdraw is not to run away, and to stay is no wise action when there is more reason to fear than to hope. 'Tis the part of a wise man to keep himself today for tomorrow, and not venture all his eggs in one basket.“

—  Miguel de Cervantes Spanish novelist, poet, and playwright 1547 - 1616
Context: To withdraw is not to run away, and to stay is no wise action when there is more reason to fear than to hope. 'Tis the part of a wise man to keep himself today for tomorrow, and not venture all his eggs in one basket. And though I am but a clown, or a bumpkin, as you may say, yet I would have you to know I know what is what, and have always taken care of the main chance... Sancho to Don Quixote, in Ch. 9, Peter Anthony Motteux translation (1701).
