“Decisions of character are made by remembering the right order of the first and second great commandments.”
The greatest need in the world today is faith in God and courage to do his will.
“A few of the basic attributes needed to become a lifelong learner are courage, faithful desire, humility, patience, curiosity, and a willingness to communicate and share the knowledge that we gain…. Lifelong learning is essential to the vitality of the human mind, body, and soul. It enhances self-worth and self-actuation. Lifelong learning is invigorating mentally and is a great defense against aging, depression, and self-doubt.”
“Real courage is when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”
“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”
“Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.”
“Let us have the courage to defy the consensus, the courage to stand for principle. Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God’s approval. Courage becomes a living and an attractive virtue when it is regarded not only as a willingness to die manfully, but also as a determination to live decently. A moral coward is one who is afraid to do what he thinks is right because others will disapprove or laugh. Remember that all men have their fears, but those who face their fears with dignity have courage as well.”
