There are many slogans stated as an imperative of the form "Dare to X", where "to X" is an infinitive phrase. This typically exhorts the listener to do X, without fear or hesitation. It may suggesting that doing X will demonstrate bravery of some kind.
"Dare to be different" - an encouragement to avoid excessive conformity
"Dare to Be Stupid" - a song by "Weird Al" Yankovic, in which the listener is encouraged, mainly in the imperative mood, to do all manner of stupid things (e.g. "You better put all your eggs in one basket / You better count your chickens before they hatch").
"Dare to keep kids off drugs" - an anti-drug slogan used by the Drug Abuse Resistance Education program in the 1980s (it was often spelled "D.A.R.E. to keep kids off drugs" to hearken back to the program's acronym).
Are these all descended from some single ancestral "Dare to X" example? Do we know anything about how this form became popular?
(Inspired by the question "Dare to be dull" on ELL, which discusses the usage but not the origin.)
