Explore the value of Courage
We have come into this exquisite world to experience ever and ever more deeply our divine courage, freedom and light!
Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.
Orison Swett Marden
Courage is a special kind of knowledge: the knowledge of how to fear what ought to be feared and how not to fear what ought not to be feared.
Comedy is defiance. It's a snort of contempt in the face of fear and anxiety. And it's the laughter that allows hope to creep back on the inhale.
Develop your own compass, and trust it. Take risks, dare to fail, remember the first person through the wall always gets hurt.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Every heart that has beat strong and cheerfully has left a hopeful impulse behind it in the world, and bettered the tradition of mankind.
Robert Louis Stevenson
