Courage Is...

"The Death Of Socrates" by Jacque Louis David
"Courage is almost a contradiction in terms.
It means a strong desire to live, taking the form of a readiness to die."
-Gilbert Keith Chesterton

I like that quote! It's an interesting perspective on courage.

I replied to your comment on my own blog, but I thought I'd post it here too:

Wow, I can’t imagine being without power for four days! That makes me a lot more grateful that ours was only out for six hours. Life is always an adventure when you don’t have electricity, isn’t it? It sounds like you made the most of it! I do like that old-fashioned feeling of doing everything by candlelight. :-)

Hello! I love your quotes... so inpsiring. I've often questioned myself if I would have the courage to die for Jesus - to stand up for my beliefs - even when I am about to die... and I have come to terms... yes, I would. This is what I live for - I live to die for Him.

And I gave you an award!

Hello! So glad you stopped by! It's nice hearing from you! I have your email sitting in the inbox, staring me in the face.. I need to reply! ha!

Well, don't worry about coming around... I'm just glad you're still alive AND getting my comments. ; )

Love you,
