It’s best not to test the waters.

“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.”

This line 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. – Wikipedia

DON’T GO THERE!
