Ninety percent of the cases

Prudence is a virtue whereby
we choose the adequate means for obtaining the end we have in mind.
Thus, great acts of heroism can be as prudent as strategic retreats.
If the goal is to win,
advancing is more prudent in ninety percent of the cases than retreating.
The evangelic virtue of prudence is nothing else.

Plinio CorrĂȘa de Oliveira
