bravery

A Quote by Patrick Henry on bravery, country, fear, friendship, giving, god, guilt, heaven, justice, nations, nature, power, time, and weakness

. . . I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us! . . . Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. . . . Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave . . . . . . Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason toward my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

A Quote by Pat Derby on bravery, humor, loyalty, parenthood, and play

They [gorillas] are brave and loyal. They help each other. They rival elephants as parents and whales for gentleness. They play and have humor and they harm nothing. They are what we should be. I don't know if we'll ever get there.

A Quote by Maurice Maeterlinck on art, beauty, bravery, gratitude, language, men, names, and trifle

Brave old-flowers! Wall-flowers, Gilly flowers, Stocks! For even as the field-flowers, from which a trifle, a ray of beauty, a drop of perfume, divides them, they have charming names, the softest in the language; and each of them, like tiny, art-less ex-votos, or like medals bestowed by the gratitude of men, proudly bears three or four.

Good resolutions are a pleasant crop to sow. -The seed springs up so readily, and the blossoms open so soon with such a brave show, especially at first. But when the time of flowers has passed, what as to the fruit?
