Quote of The Day

Courage is the strength to face pain,

act under pressure,

and maintain one’s values in the face of opposition.

You gain stregth, courage, and confidence by every experiece in which

you really stop to look fear in the face.

You are able to say to yourself:

“I lived through this horrror.

I can take the next thing that comes along.”
