Weekly Quote #20 ~ Piers Anthony

Mulluane | Friday, September 19, 2014 | 4 Comments so far

“Being terrified but going ahead

and doing what must be done

that's courage.

The one who feels no fear is

a fool, and the one

who lets fear rule him

is a coward.”

-- Piers Anthony, Castle Roogna --

  1. Another great quote! The fist part of the sentence is especially meaningful because it does not necessarily apply only to extraordinary circumstances, as the ones the heroes in books face: that's the kind of courage we have to summon every single day in our lives. We might not be *terrified*, as the quote goes, but scared, or tired, or hopeless, and yet we find the courage to go on...

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Makes us all the heroes in our individual tales :>)

  2. Yes, that is a good quote. Fear isn't necessarily bad, but being paralyzed by it usually is. {Smile}
