As life poses new challenges, courage becomes all: “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” Nin’s quote equals truth.
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.
The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
– Nelson Mandela
“Real courage is when you know you’re licked before you begin,
but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”

and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace.
God is awake.”
– Victor Hugo
