Who Dares Wins

Who Dares, Wins (Latin: Qui audet adipiscitur; Greek: ? ?????? ????, O tolmón niká; French: Qui ose gagne; Italian: Chi osa vince; Portuguese: Quem ousa, vence; German: Wer wagt, gewinnt) is a motto made popular by the British Special Air Service. It is normally credited to the founder of the SAS, Sir David Stirling. Among the SAS themselves, it is sometimes humorously corrupted to "Who cares [who] wins?". The expression appears in a medieval Arabic book of fairy tales translated and published in 2014. The catchphrase "He Who Dares, Wins" was commonly used by Del Boy in British sitcom Only Fools and Horses. The motto has been used by twelve elite special forces units around the world that in some way have historical ties to the British SAS. An early statement of the idea is '???? ???????? ? ???? ????????' ("luck favours the daring") from the Ancient Greek soldier and historian Thucydides.
