You say that you are my judge; I do not know if you are; but take good heed not to judge me ill, because you would put yourself in great peril.
— Joan of Arc

As life is action and passion, it is required of a man that he should share the passion and action of his time, at the peril of being not to have lived.
Oliver Wendell Holmes perils quote

The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.
— J. R. R. Tolkien

The honors of this world, what are they but puff, and emptiness, and peril of falling?
— Augustine of Hippo

Act, if you like, but you do it at your peril. Men's actions are too strong for them. Show me a man who has acted and who has not been the victim and slave of his action.
— perils quotation by Ralph Waldo Emerson
