Calculated risks

          "Well" - she was reluctant to leave - "take care of yourself. You take too many chances."
          "Not me," He shook his head. "Only a fool takes chances. That isn't bravery, not one bit. The good fightin' man never takes a chance he can avoid. You have to take plenty you can't help, an' only a fool wold go to gamblin' with his life."

(from The Rustlers of West Fork, by Louis L'Amour)
