‘Fools rush in where angels fear to tread’

It means inexperienced or ignorant people often do things without really thinking things through. They end up doing things which informed or experienced people would avoid.

Examples: Rajeev was keen on becoming the President of the Club. Now he feels he shouldn’t have contested. Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
