He that wold not when he might,

Confidence is a plant of slow growth in an aged bosom.

My last confidence will be like my first.
  [Lat., Ultima talis erit quae mea prima fides.]

Wise men have but few confidants, and cunning ones none.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)

A noble heart, like the sun, showeth its greatest countenance in its lowest estate.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

In a just cause it is right to be confident.
      - Sophocles

Society is built upon trust.
      - Bishop Robert South

To reveal imprudently the spot where we are most sensitive and vulnerable is to invite a blow. The demigod Achilles admitted no one to his confidence.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

Be not confident and affirmative.
      - Jeremy Taylor

Surely modesty never hurt any cause; and the confidence of man seems to me to be much like the wrath of man.
      - John Tillotson

Confidence is conqueror of men; victorious both over them and in them;
  The iron will of one stout heart shall make a thousand quail:
    A feeble dwarf, dauntlessly resolved, will turn the tide of a battle,
      And rally to a nobler strife the giants that had fled.
      - Martin Farquhar Tupper,
        Proverbial Philosophy--Of Faith (l. 11)

Confidence is nowhere safe.
  [Lat., Nusquam tuta fides.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil),
        The Aeneid (IV, 373)
