Point to Ponder

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 could also be rephrased as the jump one takes from a total loss to a new beginning.. just on the basis of hope.

p.s. Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.

The brave don't retreat because they're afraid...the act inspite of it. Courage is when you feel the fear at your core and go ahead and face it anyway. Wish I had more courage :P
