Courage and cowardice are antithetical
Courage is an inner resolution to go forward
in spite of obstance and frighening
situation, cowardice is a submissive
surrender to circumstance.
Courage breeds creative self affirmation;
cowardice produces destructive
Courage face fear and thereby master it;
cowardice represses fear and is
thereby mastered by it.
Courageous men never lose the zest for
living even though their life
situation is zestless;
cowardly men, overwhelmed by the
uncertainities of life,
lose the will to live.
We must constantly build the dykes of courage
to hold back the flood of fear.
Martin Luther King (Jr.)
Be of good courage my beloved friend.
