A Quote by Maya Angelou on courage, generosity, honesty, kindness, mercy, potential, practice, and virtue

One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.
