“I can feel two ways at the same time: fear and courage…”
I read this today at The English Professor at Large and like most things that are true, it just struck a cord. Although the author used it to describe herself, I would like to apply this to something more general. Being afraid to do something, but still doing it is true courage, thus feeling fear and courage at the same time is quite a glorious thing! As our former president Nelson Mandela put it:
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
May we always remember this.
