The line For fools rush in where angels fear to tread was first written by

Alexander Pope

in his 1711 poem

An Essay on Criticism

. The phrase alludes to inexperienced or rash people attempting things that more experienced people avoid. It has since entered the general English lexicon as an idiom.

[1]

The phrase, in full or in part, has been used countless times since 1711.

Context[

edit

]

After having described the vices of “an incorrigible Poet”, Pope lays in to “an impertinent Critic”:

[2]

The Bookful Blockhead, ignorantly read,
With Loads of Learned Lumber in his Head,
With his own Tongue still edifies his Ears,
And always List’ning to Himself appears.

Name a new Play, and he’s the Poet’s Friend,
Nay show’d his Faults—but when wou’d Poets mend?
No Place so Sacred from such Fops is barr’d,
Nor is Paul’s Church more safe than Paul’s Church-yard:
Nay, fly to Altars; there they’ll talk you dead;
For Fools rush in where Angels fear to tread.

[3]

— Alexander Pope, An Essay on Criticism, lines 612-615, 620-625

But, by contrast:

Distrustful Sense with modest Caution speaks;
It still looks home, and short Excursions makes;
But ratling Nonsense in full Vollies breaks;

[3]

— Alexander Pope, An Essay on Criticism, lines 626-628
