People who act decisively make their own fate.
The first recorded use of this expression, or close variations of it, are from Roman times - in the writings of Ennius (239-169 bc), Terence (190-159 bc), Virgil (70-19 bc) and Pliny the Elder (ad 23-79). For example in the Aeneis, Virgil writes Audaces fortuna iuvat (luck helps those who are brave).
Other common forms include fortune favors the bold, fortune favors the daring and fortune favors the brave and the foolish.
