Thoughts on Courage

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.  The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.  (Nelson Mandela)

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.  (Winston Churchill)

You will never do anything in this world without courage.  It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.  (Aristotle)

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.  (Mark Twain)

Thoughts on Love

Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.  (Helen Keller)

It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love.  This is how the whole scheme of things work.  All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.  (Confucius)

Love recognizes no barriers.  It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.  (Maya Angelou)

Change Takes Discipline

The dictionary defines change as, “to become different in some way, to change is to adjust develop, transform, or revise.”

However, you cannot have change without discipline.   

Discipline is defined as, “a system of rules of conduct or method of practice; to be disciplined is to have self-control, self-restraint, and self-mastery.”

Basically, change takes discipline.  The two work together.
