An act or vice opposed to the virtue of prudence and to the gift of counsel. Prudence is actuated by a memory of past experiences, the consideration of actual circumstances, comparison of reasons pro and con, an ingenious foresight of possible consequences, and the advice of elders. Rashness passes over all this, with very little deliberation. In judgment, it is an act of the mind which asserts something without solid foundation and with lack of evidence.
