I always listen to NPR while driving. A few weeks ago, I was listening to the Faith Middleton Show. Gordon Livingston, M.D. was on, talking about his new book the thing you think you cannot do. Here are some of his statements that resonated with me:
— To be a hero, you have to have a choice. And there has to be risk and benefit for others.
— The heart of anger is sadness.
— Hope has to be realistic.
— Courage is not the absence of fear.
— Fear is an emotion. Courage is an act.
— Honesty is necessary for courage.
— And, we must have hope to nourish courage.
