     Usage: {Rash}, {Adventurous}, {Foolhardy}. A man is
            adventurous who incurs risk or hazard from a love of
            the arduous and the bold. A man is rash who does it
            from the mere impulse of his feelings, without
            counting the cost. A man is foolhardy who throws
            himself into danger in disregard or defiance of the
            consequences.

            [1913 Webster]
  
                  If any yet be so foolhardy
                  To expose themselves to vain jeopardy;
                  If they come wounded off, and lame,
                  No honor's got by such a maim.    --Hudibras.
            [1913 Webster]
