because a partisan was more ready to dare without
asking why. --Jowett

Note: The present tense, I dare, is really an old past tense,
so that the third person is he dare, but the form he
dares is now often used, and will probably displace the
obsolescent he dare, through grammatically as incorrect
as he shalls or he cans. --Skeat.
[1913 Webster]

the old form dare is found for durst or dared.
