It is dying that makes life important -- Fear is the death of reason -- Matters of the heart (or of state) that begin with a lie rarely end well -- You have never suffered enough -- Sometimes courage is hoping against hope -- Old age is the revenge of the ugly -- In life beyond high school, no one give you credit for effort -- Fear lurks behind perfectionism -- Courage is not a feeling; it is a habit -- Beware of ideas on which we all agree -- There is no humor in heaven -- Determination in the pursuit of folly is the indulgence of fools -- Courage can be taught only by example -- Nothing prepares us for the terrible risk of intimacy -- Life is not a rehearsal -- Courage is like love; it must have hope to nourish it -- Punishment and revenge are the favored responses of fearful people -- Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage -- Cowardice is the incapacity to love anything but oneself -- Honesty is a prerequisite for courage -- Fear springs from ignorance -- It is pointless to fear the past -- There are wounds that doctors cannot reach, that gratitude cannot heal -- Courage is required to bear the unbearable -- Ignorance can be remedied; stupidity has no cure -- Heroism is sometimes stubbornness in the face of adversity -- Life is not a spectator sport -- One of the greatest risks is to be honest with ourselves -- At the heart of anger is sadness -- The quest for courage is a journey within
