#21: Holy War
"Courage is not the absence
of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more
important than one's fear. The timid
presume it is lack of fear that allows the brave to act when the
timid do not. But to take action when one is not afraid is easy. To
refrain when afraid is also easy. To take
action regardless of fear is brave."
— Ambrose Hollingworth Redmoon,
from No Peaceful Warriors!
