Let us be brave in the face of adversity.

There is nothing in the world so much admired as a man who knows how to bear unhappiness with courage.
Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.
Courage leads starward, fear toward death.
Courage is a scorner of things which inspire fear.
What must be, shall be; and that which is a necessity to him that struggles is little more than choice to him that is willing.
If we let things terrify us, life will not be worth living.
Where fear is, happiness is not.
We are more often frightened than hurt; and we suffer more from imagination than from reality.
Malice drinks one-half of its own poison.
