I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection.  ’Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.
    —    Thomas Paine
[While I agree with Paine – in general – on the admirable traits required to accomplish great things.  I am equally reminded of the saying (I made up based on the title of a Star Trek – Original Series episode): “there is no truth in beauty, although there is a beauty in truth“.    Anyway, I would caution readers the above quote is equally valid for many mass murderers and terrorists – maybe even more so.     —    KMAB]
