"One of the marks of a gift is to have the courage of it."
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."Katherine Anne Porter on Steve Jobs
"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.'"Katherine Anne Porter on Eleanor Roosevelt
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."Katherine Anne Porter on Nelson Mandela
"Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen."Katherine Anne Porter on Winston Churchill
"There are no easy answers' but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right."Katherine Anne Porter on Ronald Reagan
"The real sin against life is to abuse and destroy beauty, even one's own even more, one's own, for that has been put in our care and we are responsible for its well-being."
