“Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die” – G.K. Chesterton
My thoughts – Having seen first hand the courage of another person fighting to survive cancer, I can fully respect the attitude and will required to live with the readiness to die. Also listening to a couple of stories recently of explorers, soldiers and adventurers who find themselves facing life threatening dangers and having the courage to stop, think and with rational make decisions that allowed them to survive – it makes you question, would I have courage in the same situation? I hope so!
