Twice last week I heard the phrase "Fortune favors the brave."
The first time was at work, when it was quoted by my great-grand boss to encourage us to ask questions. I responded by asking a very ill-advised question. Fortune did not favor me. (The grand-boss replied "What?" as if I were insane.)
The second time I heard it was for this commercial for cryptocurrency. Matt Damon thinks you should be 'brave' and invest in derivative money.
I have mentioned before (yet somehow people still don't know) that the phrase was coined by Pliny the Elder, who said "Fortune favors the brave" as as a reason to go save people from a volcanic eruption, which promptly killed him. Pliny the Younger recounted this later, thus able to record his father's famous last words and then say, "Wow, we need a word for that, maybe something like 'ironic'."
Not a good reason to buy crypto currency or speak frankly to your great-grand-boss in either case.
