Courage in a few words.

A beautiful piece of writing I stumbled across the other day.

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,
But to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain,
But for the heart to conquer it.
Let me not look for allies in life’s battlefields,
But to my own strength.
Let me not cave in.

-Rabindranath Tagore 1861-1941
