Courage Quote of the Day

"We don't conquer this world's mischief and wrongdoing and malice once and for all, and then forever after enjoy the moral harvest of that victory.  Rather, we struggle along, even stumble along, from day to day, in need of taking stock yet again, with the help of a story, a movie, not to mention the experiences that, inevitably and not so rarely, come into our daily lives."
~ Robert Coles, The Moral Intelligence of Children

Courage Quote of the Day

"The heroic personality is human, not perfect, but human. Perfectionism, like consumerism, is one of the great cripplers. If I have to do something perfectly I'll probably not do it at all, in case I fail. Maybe it's a good thing I was such a failure as a schoolchild, because accepting failure has freed me to take risks."

~ Madeleine L'Engle
