Virtues

The best part of beauty is that which no picture can express.

Francis Bacon (1561-1626) British statesman and philosopher.

Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something.

Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.

Courage leads to heaven; fear leads to death.

Seneca (4 BC-65) Roman philosopher and playwright.

Courage is not limited to the battlefield or the Indianapolis 500 or bravely catching a thief in your house. The real tests of courage are much quieter. They are the inner tests, like remaining faithful when nobody's looking, like enduring pain when the room is empty, like standing alone when you're misunderstood.
