The oldest notion of RM?

The oldest notion of managing risk that I could find is this one:
"Do not count your chicken before they stopped breeding". (Aesopus 550BC, Thracian poet)
I found this quotation on:
Advice on RM. Risk Quotes and Uncertainty Quotations
These are more cool quotations there on dealing with uncertainty. (You have to press F5 to get a new one).

Who knows of an even older risk phrase or quotation?
