The quotes:

Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again - this is the brave and happy life.
     - J. E. Buckrose

Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid, one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory.
     - Douglas MacArthur

Courageous risks are life-giving, they help you grow, make you brave, and better than you think you are.
     - Joan L. Curcio

I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies, for the hardest victory is over self.
     - Aristotle

Only a brave person is willing to honestly admit, and fearlessly to face, what a sincere and logical mind discovers.
     - Rodan of Alexandria
