Count your blessings instead of your crosses;; Count your gains instead of your losses; Count your joys instead of your woes;; Count your friends instead of your foes; Count your smiles instead of your tears;; Count your courage instead of your fears; Count your full years instead of your lean;; Count your kind deeds instead of your mean; Count your health instead of your wealth;; Count on God instead of yourself;
I loathed the game, and since I could see no pleasure or usefulness in it, it was very difficult for me to show courage at it. Football, it seemed to me, is not really played for the pleasure of kicking a ball about, but is a species of fighting.
__George Orwell - English writer
Common experience shows how much rarer is moral courage than physical bravery. A thousand men will march to the mouth of the cannon where one man will dare espouse an unpopular cause.
__Clarence Darrow, Resist Not Evil
