Excerpt on Courage

Often I find that others can phrase my thoughts even before they hit my tongue. Such is the way with the following excerpt from a friend's blog...


So what is the source of courage? I think it is the proper ranking of fears. If we fear ignobility more than looking foolish, we will be brave. If we fear our own corruption more than loneliness, we will be brave. If we fear divine disapproval more than human disapproval, we will be brave.

May the almighty God make us such people."
