Random quote

Everyone thinks that courage is about facing death without flinching. But almost anyone can do that. Almost anyone can hold their breath and not scream for as long as it takes to die. True courage is facing life without flinching. I don´t mean the times when the right path is hard, but glorious at the end. I´m talking about enduring the boredom, and messiness, and the inconvenience of doing what is right.
