Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.
Someone was hurt before you; wronged before you; beaten before you; humiliated before you; raped before you; yet, someone SURVIVED.
Do what you love, love what you do and the world will come to you.
We make family as we make friends.
