Definition

What does WDW mean?

Who Dares Wins
Who Dares Wins (Latin: Qui audet adipiscitur; Greek: Ο τολμών νικά, 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 shortened form "Qui Audet" is also heard on the second episode of Pennyworth. 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. Of related interest, the Canadian Special Service Force (SSF), which included the Canadian Airborne Regiment, adopted the motto "Osons" (Fr - "We Dare") - an obvious response to the original motto. The phrase is the motto of Baron Alvingham of Woodfold in the County Palatine of Lancaster, a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom.An early statement of the idea is Ancient Greek "τοῖς τολμῶσιν ἡ τύχη ξύμφορος" (toîs tolmôsin hē túkhē xúmphoros, "luck favours the daring") from the Athenian soldier and historian Thucydides.
