On courage...

"Courage is being scared to death, and saddling up anyway." --John Wayne

"The death of fear is in doing what you fear to do." --Sequiche Comingdeer

"A coward dies a thousand deaths; a brave man dies but one."

"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly."

"How to make something that is difficult, easier: Don't do it less--Do it more."

"You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him."

"When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there."

"Courage is fear that has said its prayers."

"The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us."

"People who lack courage think with their legs."

"A testimony is what's left after the test."

"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal."

Courage, according to Maya Angelou: "I think you develop it the same way you cook... You don't start off with Beef Wellington. You start off with a hard-boiled egg, then an omlet. Before you know it, you're doing a frittata!"
