  • Thomas Paine on courage…

    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, The American Crisis, No. 1, December 19, 1776
