“The secret of happiness is freedom, and
the secret of freedom is courage.”
“Courage is being scared to death
and saddling up anyway.”
“I’ve been through it all, baby.
I’m Mother Courage.”
“The opposite of courage is not cowardice. It is
conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow.”
“There are only two mistakes one can make along
the road to truth: not going all the way, and not starting.”
“A ship in harbor is safe,
but that is not what ships are built for.”
