2 Timothy 1:7 “The most high God has not given us the Spirit of cowardice or timidity, but of POWER, and divine love/favof and a sound/temperate mind.” my translation “Courage is knowing what not to fear.” Plato

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” Eleanor Roosevelt

“Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’

We are not now that strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;

One equal temper of heroic hearts,

Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”

Ulysses, Alfred Lord Tennyson

There is no illusion greater than fear. Lao Tzu

May your choices reflect your hopes and not your fears.

Nelson Mandela

What though the radiance which was once so bright

Be now for ever taken from my sight,

Though nothing can bring back the hour

Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;

We will grieve not, rather find

Strength in what remains behind;

Ode on Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood

William Wordsworth - 1770-1850

Feel the fear and do it anyway.

“Our doubts are traitors,

and make us lose the good we oft might win,

by fearing to attempt.”

William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure

Is. 41:10

“Fear not, I am with you. DO not look away/ be dismayed. For i am your god. I will make you strong, alert, courageous, brave, bold, solid, I will help/succor you. And I will LAY HOLD of you with the right hand of my righteousness.” My translation

"Elige Magistrum. Choose your master. It is the theme of this book which took me twenty years to live and write, and a theme worth contemplating. Pontius Pilate allowed fear to be his master, and his resulting decision wounded the world for over 2000 years. On this holy day of remembrance, I will vow not to make that same choice in my greatest life decisions. I reject the fear and trepidation that has haunted me for so long, and I hope you will join me in a similar choice, if that sounds right to you at this point on your journey. I will no longer wait for the other shoe to drop. I will remember that these fears belong to my past, but not to my future. My master will not be fear. My master is Hope. My master is Faith. My master is Love. And if I can stand in that belief from this day forward, then it truly is a Good Friday. "
