Either do not attempt at all or go through with it.
Ovid (43 BC - c. 18 AD)

The gods favor the bold.
Everything which I said could not happen will happen now. -Omnia iam fient fieri quae posse negabam
Love, and a cough, are not concealed. -Amor tussisque non celantur
Source: Metamorphoses, xiii.
You who seek an end of love, love yields to business: be busy, and you will be safe.
Every lover is a soldier and has his camp in Cupid. -Militat omnis amans et habet sua castra Cupido
Fortune and love favor the brave.
The burden which is well borne becomes light.
Wine gives courage and makes men more apt for passion.
Whether they give or refuse, it delights women just the same to have been asked. -Quae dant, quaeque negant, gaudent tamen esse rogatae.
