Emerson on Courage

A wonderfully inspiring quotation from the master of perfect quotations, Ralph Waldo Emerson:

Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there will always be someone to tell you, you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage which a soldier needs. Peace has its victories but it takes brave men to reach them.
