    Default Bold to be bold?

    Hello Everyone,

    I would like to know what "Bold to be bold" means! The question is raised in an Chinese translation forum.

    Can you tell me at the same time where the phrase originate from? Is it an idiom?

    Regards

    Sky

    It needs context, but essentially means that you have to be courageous in order to do something courageous.
