Don’t be afraid to try something new,
professionals built the titanic,
amateurs built Noah’s Ark.

Of all the things I've had and lost,
My mind is the thing I'll miss the most.

I don't know the context you intend, but I'm always amazed at how many people invoke that quote to justify tighter border security or home security, or some such. In fact Frost, as narrator in Mending Wall, clearly does not agree with the sentiment.

Don't know the true sources, but somewhere from an American political debate in the mid 1800's:

First pol about second pol: "You will doubtless die either from a loathsome disease or the hangman's noose!"

Second pol in response: "That, Sir, depends upon whether I embrace your mistress or your principles!"

Gawd, I wish I'd said that!!

Cheers,
