Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.
Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
Give me strength to refrain from the unkind silence that is born of hardness of heart; the unkind silence that clouds the serenity of understanding and is the enemy of peace. Give me strength to be the first to tender the healing word and the renewal of friendship, that the bonds of amity and the flow of charity may be strengthened.
