“The simple step of a courageous individual

is not to take part in the lie.

One word of truth outweighs the world.”

“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers.

It happens when you are ready

to face the questions you have been avoiding

your whole life.”

“I have not always chosen the safest path.

I’ve made my mistakes, plenty of them.

I sometimes jump too soon

and fail to appreciate the consequences.

But I’ve learned something important along the way:

I’ve learned to heed the call of my heart.

I’ve learned that the safest path

is not always the best path

and I’ve learned that the voice of fear

is not always to be trusted.”

“Courage isn’t absence of fear,

it is the awareness

that something else is important”


Stephen R. Covey
