"Part of courage is simple consistency."
"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."Peggy Noonan 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.'"Peggy Noonan 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."Peggy Noonan on Nelson Mandela
"Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen."Peggy Noonan 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."Peggy Noonan on Ronald Reagan
"Candor is a compliment it implies equality. It's how true friends talk."
"If you join government, calmly make your contribution and move on. Don't go along to get along do your best and when you have to - and you will - leave, and be something else."
"Sincerity and competence is a strong combination. In politics, it is everything."
"Beware the politically obsessed. They are often bright and interesting, but they have something missing in their natures there is a hole, an empty place, and they use politics to fill it up. It leaves them somehow misshapen."
"The battle for the mind of Ronald Reagan was like the trench warfare of World War I: never have so many fought so hard for such barren terrain."
