Whatever you do, you need courage.  Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong.  There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right.  To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs.  Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.

If you are not strong, ask for troubles to make you so.
    —    Leo Tolstoy
[Which reminds me of:

The Para’s Prayer

Give me, God, what you still have,
Give me what no one asks for;
I do not ask for wealth
Nor for success, nor even health —
People ask you so often, God, for all that
That you cannot have any left.
Give me, God, what you still have;
Give me what people refuse to accept from you.
I want insecurity and disquietude,
I want turmoil and brawl,
And if you should give them to me, my God,
Once and for all
Let me be sure to have them always,
For I will not always have the courage
To ask you for them.
     –    Attributed to André Zirnheld
[Aspirant (Second Lieutenant) André Zirnheld was the first Free French SAS officer to fall in Libya in a gun jeep raid on Nazi airfields deep behind enemy lines on July 27, 1942.  Hurriedly buried in a desert sand dune;  his friends found in his officer’s note book a prayer (above) he had written in Tunis in 1938.]

We all live in the same house, we all must be part of the effort to hold down our little house.  When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just… do something about it.  Say something.  Have the courage.  Have the backbone.  Get in the way.  Walk with the wind.  It’s all going to work out.
   —    U.S. Representative John Lewis

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.  You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror.  I can take the next thing that comes along.’  You MUST do the thing that you think you cannot do.
