A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on bravery, defeat, god, people, and reason

Young people . . , God wants us to be victorious. He wants you to triumph over all of your foes. Stalwart and brave we must stand. God is at the helm. There is no reason for defeat.

A Quote by Mark Twain on bravery, determination, miracles, perseverance, power, and spirit

The miracle, or the power, that elevates the few is to be found in their industry, application, and perseverance under the promptings of a brave, determined spirit.

A Quote by Mark Slouka on belief, benevolence, bravery, difficulty, freedom, future, god, illusions, imagination, liberty, life, paradise, and world

Whether they really believe in their brave new world, however, is ultimately beside the point. They're building it. And in the friction-free future, jacked into paradise, we'll have the 'liberty' of living (or rather, or buying the illusion of living), through the benevolent offices of a middleman as nearly omnipotent as god himself. Freedom? A more perfect captivity is difficult to imagine.

A Quote by Mao Tse-tung on bravery, death, dreams, happiness, home, regret, and sacrifice

Return to Shaoshan I regret the passing, the dying, of the vague dream: my native orchards thirty-two years ago. Yet red banners roused the serfs, who seized three-pronged lances when the warlords raised whips in their black hands. We were brave and sacrifice was easy and we asked the sun, the moon, to alter the sky. Now I see a thousand waves of beans and rice and am happy. In the evening haze heroes are coming home. June 25, 1959

Honorable retreats are no ways inferior to brave charges, as having less fortune, more of discipline, and as much valor.

A Quote by George Gordon, Lord Byron on beauty, bravery, chivalry, love, marriage, men, music, and women

There was a sound of revelry by night, And Belgium's capital had gathered then Her beauty and her chivalry, and bright The lamps shone o'er fair women and brave men. A thousand hearts beat happily; and when Music arose with its voluptuous swell, Soft eyes looked love to eyes which spake again, And all went merry as a marriage bell. But hush! hark! a deep sound strikes like a rising knell!

Lord Byron (1788 - 1824)

A Quote by John Milton on bravery, courtship, play, and sex

But who is this, what thing of sea or land,-- Female of sex it seems,-- That so bedeck'd, ornate, and gay, Comes this way sailing Like a stately ship Of Tarsus, bound for th' isles Of Javan or Gadire, With all her bravery on, and tackle trim, Sails fill'd, and streamers waving, Courted by all the winds that hold them play, An amber scent of odorous perfume Her harbinger?

John Milton (1608 - 1674)
