Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Character is what you have left when you've lost everything you can lose.
I have not ceased being fearful, but I have ceased to let fear control me. I have accepted fear as a part of life--specifically the fear of change, the fear of the unknown and I have gone ahead despite the pounding in my heart that says turn back, turn back, you'll die if you venture too far.
