FORESIGHT
[ Also see Discernment Discretion Hindsight Perception Predictable Sight Vision ]

Accustom yourself to submit on all and every occasion, and on the most minute, no less than on the most important circumstances of life, to a small present evil, to obtain a greater distant good. This will give decision, tone, and energy to the mind, which, thus disciplined, will often reap victory from defeat and honor from repulse.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Human foresight often leaves its proudest possessor only a choice of evils.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Those old stories of visions and dreams guiding men have their truth; we are saved by making the future present to ourselves.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

It is only the surprise and newness of the thing which makes that misfortune terrible which by premeditation might be made easy to us. For that which some people make light by sufferance, others do by foresight.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

To fear the worst, oft cures the worst.
      - William Shakespeare

Look ere thou leap; see ere thou go.
      - Thomas Tusser
