JOHN GOWER ("THE MORAL GOWER")
English poet
(c. 1325 - 1408)

He that well his warke beginneth
  The rather a good ende he winneth.
      - Confessio Amantis [Work]

A king may spille, a king may save;
  A king may make of lorde a knave;
    And of a knave a lorde also.
      - Confessio Amantis (bk. VII, l. 1,895)
        [Man]

For who that noght dar undertake,
  Be riht he schal no profit take
    [For who that dare not undertake,
      By right he shall no profit take.
        i.e., Nothing ventured, nothing gained.]
      - Confessio Amantis (st. 320),
        (for variations on theme, see Chaucer and Heywood)
        [Proverbs : Risk]
