I've always enjoyed this one from F.M. Cornford, which I posted elsewhere. I often use it to end a presentation:

"Every public action which is not customary, either is wrong or, if it is right, is a dangerous precedent. It follows that nothing should ever be done for the first time."

There is another one from Horace:

"Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans: it's lovely to be silly at the right moment."
